Rock, Paper, Scissors

Remember playing "Rock Paper Scissors" as a kid? The creator of this unique costume set sure did! Doing a group set of costumes is really a great idea, and gives a broader span of choices. Just remember the rules... Rock smashes scissors, scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock...

Never mind the old saying of "don't air your dirty laundry in public." This contributor's submission of "Dirty Laundry" costume sure didn't stick to the status quo! How much fun would it be for a kid to wear underwear on their head in public AND get away with it?
