What I wish I would have said.

But you know it’s the punks that don’t bother to put on any semblance of a costume that are the ones most likely to egg a house for being snubbed, so I generally surrender the candy to save myself the post-trick clean-up.

That ladybug was a super fun and simple costume. All I did was make wings out of burgundy and black felt and pin them to a black sweater. Add black skirt, red shirt, and some red, twisted pipe cleaners on butterfly clips and there I was. I still have the wings… Hmmmm… (But I don’t think I’ll paint the ladybugs on my cheeks, again. That was hard to get off last time.)
