My kids' bowling league had a Halloween bowling party today and three of the four kids dressed up (for some reason my 5yo will ONLY dress up for trick-or treating ). All of my kids are wearing traditional costumes, either bought new this year or leftover from previous years, etc, except my DD 10. She has an Aurora dress in her closet, but instead she decided to be a table lamp! She got the idea when the kids were messing around with a lampshade that I was going to throw in the trash when I got a new one from goodwill. We made her a table out of cardboard to wear around her waist and put a tablecloth on it, then we attached the shade to an old ball cap and attached a flashlight under the shade. I'm not sure she would've won if she hadn't decided to turn on the flashlight right before they judged. She won first place, she got her choice of a bowling ball, bag, or bowling shoes. She chose the bag (with my nudging) because she has a ball and she'll outgrow the shoes. I was going to get her one for Christmas, so that saves me $30-$50, especially since the costume was free! She got a trophy, too, she was pretty excited.
