Our oldest sister is ummmm a little ummm…..intense. For example, she once brought lit sparklers into the house to win a dessert contest. She once called her professor over Christmas break to change her grade from a B to an A. (Honestly, if I had been that professor, I would have bumped her down to a C for interrupting my Christmas, but she’s a better woman than I am.) And why wouldn’t she throw a first birthday party for her basset hound and ask several of her friends to drive a few hours to celebrate a canine?
So, when her first child was born, there was no way she was just going to throw him into a pumpkin suit for Halloween and call it a day. Nope. That just wouldn’t do. So, what’s a girl to do? Put him in 13 costumes and start “The 13 Days of Halloween”. Well, almost a decade later it is still happening and has become some people’s favorite part of the season.
Nine years of creativity, nine years of bribing children, nine years of more costume changes than Cher. We thought it would be fun for those of you that don’t know and don’t get the privilege of seeing these on Facebook every year to showcase some of the highlights. It also might give you some inspiration if you’re in need of a last-minute costume. Without further ado, bring on the wigs…
And please remember, this is merely a sampling. There’s a lot more where these came from.
Thanks for joining this trip down memory lane-a memory lane that’s chock full of wigs. Please comment with your favorite one. Our slightly intense sister would love to know!
