Last year, the Kidling was a Weeping Angel for the school haunted house. This year, she wanted to be Medusa.
What in all the Seven Hells possessed me to agree to that? I don’t have the money for fancy costumes… the only reason we got the headpiece is because my cousin already had one. I can’t use my sewing machine…. not only can’t I actually GET at it, it isn’t working.
But I told her I had ideas on how to make it work. Homemade costumes are something we’ve done a lot of in this family….for generations.
Problem is…I CAN’T do it this time. Between her body shape, and my limited abilities, I just can’t seem to make it work.
