Make it Work.


Last night there was a Halloween dance for the teenagers at church.  About an hour before it was time to go, Claire and Eden both made an announcement:

I NEED A COSTUME!!!!


My response:  "I'm not taking you to the store to spend loads of money on an outfit for a dance that lasts an hour.  Dig around in the costume box and find something!  Make it work."   

I have to say, I liked what  they came up with more than anything they could have purchased at the last minute.


Claire's Creation:   Bubble gum on the bottom of a shoe.

 
Eden's Ensemble:   A Disneyland tourist.

lOVE IT! About four years ago I found myself in a similar circumstance. I almost didn't go to the YSA activity because I didn't have a costume. At the very last minute, I tore a couple of holes in a tall kitchen trash bag, threw it on and went as white trash...I'm glad I went. I met my husband there. :)
