I wish I could find a picture of it to post on here...perhaps I'll have to wait till I get it together and put it on then get my ex to take a picture of me so I can upload it. Anyway... it's called Mommy Weirdest. I had taken out several Halloween books to see what I can find for ideas on costumes. It's in a Disney book. "It's Family Fun Trickes and Treats. 100 Wickedly Easy Costumes Crafts, Games & Food" By Deanna F. Cook and the experts at FamilyFun magazine. There are actually several good ideas for costumes in this book.
It's a creepy optical illusion of an old woman with a baby on her back. I need to go to the Salvation Army store to see if I can find a large black dress for the woman and there should be a baby sleeper there. I'll need a baby bonnet that will fit me as well. I have a pair of mittens and I'll need to find a soother. The nylons will be no problem to get. Then just the granny purse, cane and granny lookin' type shoes. I'll have to wait till it's closer to Halloween to get an old woman's mask. I'll post how to put it together when I've finished it. I've got the backback I need and plenty of newspaper to stuff it with so that is part of it already done right there. :)
I'm hoping it won't be too cold this year. Last year it was gorgeous weather wise...mild. It's too bad the kids were feeling a little under the weather recuperating from the flu then. Guess I couldn't have both nice weather and healthy kids. LOL! Perhaps this year will be different.
