Costume designers tend to be the Ebeneezer Scrooges of Halloween. I honestly can't say whether or not I'm going to be a great costume mom, I'll probs be burnt out by then. If I get paid to design and build costumes, why would I go all out for my kids? It's like if a mom gets paid to be a nurse why would she treat her kids at home, wait...

Anyway, most or all of my costumes were either made by my mom, or thrown together from things I had lying around. Last year I was a 1920s tennis star bc I had a white 20s dress and a racket. This year I was Hipster Jane Eyre: unflattering hair, red lip stain, nerdy boy glasses, scarf, grandpa sweater, skinny jeans (from Urban Outfitters in London, bc that's the hipsterest) and moccasins.


  1. I'm pretty sure that's not a costume. Will you make me a Mary Poppins costume? I would LOVE to have one of those in my closet...seriously! Now you know your assignment for next year!
