Halloween

Oct

For no particular reason, we decided to dress Viola up as Bjork in the swan dress this year for Halloween.

Like last year's ninja costume, this was another collaboration between me, Joe, and American Apparel. We started with a white tank dress. Joe sewed and stuffed the neck and beak. I cut feathers out of felt and flannel, and sewed them on one at a time on my 2 hours of bus time per day. Then we put it over the top by cutting apart a white boa and hot-gluing the feathers all over. Viola called it her "Juan dress."

Not a bad resemblance, I must say.

Viola was a good sport about wearing it to my office on Friday (a big hit) and to a party at Clarkie's house yesterday (where there were 2 other birds in attendance as well).

But she wouldn't put the dress on for her grandparents on Friday night, nor would she put it on for her other grandparents who were watching on Skype tonight ("No, no Juan dress.") So we greeted the trick-or-treaters in our regular clothes and still felt festive.

Last weekend we went to a pumpkin carving party. Viola drew the face, which was surprisingly face-like, and Joe executed her design (me too, a little -- I carved the hair with a wood-carving tool).

We got Viola to get close to it for one picture, but after that she won't go near it if it's lighted. I kind of agree with her -- it's a little on the scary side.

Amid all this hoopla, we managed to only let her eat seven Raisinets and one package of Welch's fruit gummies -- a parental achievement, to be sure. In the coming years it will be much harder to stop her from candy over-ingestion as well as Disney princessification. We will try, though.

I agree on the shoe choice. Juan is the new swan. Bjork should be taking her cues from Viola rather than the other way around.
