In the words of Mom Tricia:
This Halloween, Joseph, the 4 yr old, was a fisherman and Jacob, the 18m old, was a fish:
I used stuff around the house for Joseph's costume. I ended up buying the boots for him at Walmart ($11, but I bought them big so he can actually wear them fishing next summer with Grandpa). I didn't use any kind of pattern for the fish, totally handmade. I used a metal clothes hanger to make the tail stick out. I think it's cute cause the little tale flips up and down. I spray painted his hair orange and spiked it like a fin. He has white hair so I was very (pleasantly) surprised that all the orange came out with just one washing!
Thanks for the info Tricia!
Great Idea for a pair of siblings Ü

If you don't have the time or the inclination to MAKE a costume for an event like a School Play or a Parade. If you've thought about it, but your heart, for whatever reason, JUST isn't in it... You can probably purchase a costume of the type you were planning to make...and maybe even for about the same as you might spend on the materials to MAKE a costume. Just maybe... the Fisherman might catch a Mermaid! Ü
