Thank you to Twitter Sandra Bullock Tweeters for this info!

Sandra Bullock put together great costumes for Louis and herself. She put together a grey dress with a skeleton design, black sandals, a floppy hat and face paint to be an elegantly scary skeleton! She put together a skeleton costume and added bat wings for Louis!

Well, I haven’t put anything together yet! I am thinking of putting together a costume like this one:

I will need a big cardboard box, a small cardboard box, red paper or paint, 7 instant ramen noodle cups, red pants and shirt and gloves and …hmmm…maybe black is OK for the shoesto put that together!

I can put that together for Halloween!

There are so many great ideas; I can’t decide what to be.

Should I be something scary or something sweet? This family decided to be the characters from David Bowie’s movie Labriynth—and they won Best Family Costume for 2013! WOW!
