Alllllllrighty. We're ready for the big day/night. (Technically we're not actually ready, but at least we have a plan.)
Cooper has decided that he is going to be a storm trooper. And yes, he gets how funny it is that Cooper rhymes with trooper. This was a long road, please. In the course of a few months he has gone from wanting to be a LEGO block, to Darth Vader, to Darth Maul (whateverthehellthatis?!?!), to Spiderman, to.... drum roll please... A Storm Trooper. Each time he changed his mind he was very frank about it. He just up and said, "I've changed my mind. I actually want to be --fill in the blank--."
Mason's costume is really giving me heartburn. He is in love with Buzz Lightyear and Woody (from Toy Story). I thought we would easily convince him to be one of those. Then he got a great Iron Man suit. He loves that one, but wears it nearly every day. But when I ask him what he wants to be for Halloween -- because after all, Halloween isn't everyday -- he starts breathing heavy. That's Darth Vader, right? We have a saber, and a mask, but I will be making a Darth Vader robe in a size 24 months. Seriously.
So, can't waste time online. It's off to the sewing room I go.
PS -- I also got a Darth Vader candy bucket. Has anyone seen a Storm Trooper candy bucket? Is there such a thing?
