Halloween itch

Usually there are two times of the year that I get the Halloween itch. In the month of May (yes, this month and I've already got it! LOL!) It will last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. And around the end of August/beginning of September which lasts right up till Halloween itself.
Today I was looking online at my local library for books I might want them to ship to me to read. I picked a few but wondered what else I could do. Then it hit me...Halloween! LOL! Well that was it. The Halloween itch was back and I quickly went through some of the long list. Alot of them were children's books but I found a few on making costumes. So I made sure to request those.
After the kids came home from school and had a snack I asked them what they wanted to be. My son wanted to try the bad again as last year I was unsuccessful to create it in time and my daughter wants to be a white chicken. LOL! The bat I think I can manage now. The chicken...it's going to be hard to find white feather boas. That is the only item I'm going to have a hard time with. I warned her I might not be able to so we might have to have a back up plan. But we'll see how things go. :)
As for what I will be...I'm not sure yet but hopefully I can figure it out before it's too late!

I become more focused on Halloween in May as well. In my case, I think it's because the warmer weather means I can start working on props outside again.

Good luck with those costumes! :D
