At the school where I work, we have a Halloween parade. That means I have to figure out what to dress up as every year. The tricky part is coming up with a costume that the kids will know who or what I am. I hate spending money on costumes that I will just wear once. This costume cost me a whole $2.50! It was a huge hit. The best part was wearing it during the evening while trick-or-treaters came to our home. Their reactions and comments were priceless. I think they enjoyed seeing the costume more than getting the candy.
