Tesa, this one’s for you ;)
So a few weeks ago, I shared a card I made with The Character Cafe’s character Pumpkin Petra.
I also stated that I felt a special connection to Petra because I was once a pumpkin for Halloween; we filled the pumpkin with plastic grocery bags to fill it out….which also caused a ‘swoosh-crinkle-swoosh’ noise when I walked.
My Dad scanned the pic and sent it to me; so here is me as a pumpkin and my sister as a bunny. Both costumes were made by my Mom, and she made our treat bags as well.
What you don’t see is that we had to put on our winter coats to go out…growing up in Northern Ontario, all Halloween costumes are made to fit a snowsuit underneath, or you wear one on top! (no, we don’t have snow at Halloween, but it’s only about 10 degrees Celsius, so you need a coat).
Ciao for now,
