Halloween Fallback

I have this costume that I do periodically when I don’t have something really specific I want to do. Or if I decide not to skip the entire shebang.

When I was 10 or so, my mom did a costume that wasn’t really a costume by wearing a flannel shirt and buttoning a second flannel around her waist. She safety pinned gloves to the arms of the second flannel and then tied fishing line from it to the top arms.

I’ve done that costume in various versions over the years. Unfortunately I only have pictures of the version I made this year. Today, I mean.

I bought these gloves with the intention of them looking something like real hands since they are sorta skin colored. But it turns out that thick, fuzzy,pink gloves stuffed full look like large cartoon hands.

This is fine with me. Happy Accident.
