halloween weekend is 6 weeks away.

i’ll be visiting america again then…

(the only place to be on halloween)

…and i cannot wait.

blog

this was my cousin’s costume last year.

daniel plainview.

isn’t it awesome?

i’ve been sewing my costume*….

and i’m pretty excited about it.

i bet my mom is reading this, thinking,

“my daughter can sew?”.

she doesn’t know i can

because i make her sew everything for me when i’m at home.

my dad can sew, too.

i know this because he once sewed the straps on my barbie’s swimsuit

after they broke off during a really crazy ride in the barbie minivan.

anyway, did i mention halloween is only 6 weeks away?

did i mention i cannot wait?

 

*sewing my costume = sewing strips of suede onto suspenders.  so i guess that means no, mom, your daughter can’t really sew.

By sewing - do you mean with a sewing machine or by hand? Can't wait to see it.

Mom, definitely not a sewing machine...just by hand.

Can't wait to see your costume! I'm happy for you, celebrating halloween in America must be awesome! I'm going to a halloween party here in switzerland, but only a few people normalle wear costumes :-( I would LOVE to go as 'slutty pumpkin' (HIMYM) :-D

Alivia said...

YES, you CAN sew. You could have very well bought velcro stickers and skipped the sewing, so I'm proud of you ;)

Che said...
