Last week my son’s school had a “costume day.” He wanted to be Venom of Marvel lore, and told me so a week before. Welllllll I forgot until the day before. So I did a quick google search, made a list, and after work, hit up a Goodwill, Dollar Tree, hardware store, and an art supply store on my way home. I came home with this:
At 11:30 PM, I was done.
Typical me, I look at this and think of all the improvements I could have made, but then I remember that I had to wake up early for puppy and work, and I did the best I could with the time and resources I had. Besides! The boy was OVER THE MOON with this outfit.
I’ve promised him that if he’s Venom for Halloween, I’ll make some upgrades. So far, that’s the plan. I just LOVE these challenges- making fantastical costumes with few resources (the more repurposed, the better!!!), and with a time crunch, I think I do my best work. 😉
