    I am so perturbed, my sons school sent home a note last week stating that the 30th will be a FALL FESTIVAL and all costumes should be fall themed. [​IMG] Ive only been making a pirate costume for the last couple weeks. What the heck is a fall themed costume? Scarecrow? Pumpkin? I cant go out and buy a sweat suit to make a costume. Any ideas, I need it done by friday.

    Get one of those pumpkin trash bags and fill it with tissue paper - cut hold for your legs and make a neck band from leaves.

    some cardboard boxes, construction paper and glue would make him a tree with the leaves falling off.

    That seems awfully short notice for many folks, and essentially requires that he have 2 costumes.

    I would probably dress him up as a pirate and paint leaves on his face--he can be the captain of The Autumn.

    Ugh ... not sure if this is a knee-jerk right wing reaction against devil worship or a knee-jerk left wing reaction for political correctness ... but how annoying!

    Make a sheet toga, corn cob and leaf accessories and send him in as Demeter, greek goddess of the harvest. It's a pagan, gender-bending feista for all!
