Simple And Cheap Kids Crayon Costumes
The Costume I Remember Most Wearing As A Child
When looking back at my childhood years though different Halloweens I can remember a few Angel costumes, a clown costume and even a Little House On The Prairie Costume, but my most memorable costume was the red crayon.
I am not sure what fascinated me about the red crayon but I was not much for monsters or fictional characters, but my eyes lighted up when I found out my mom was making a red crayon costume for Halloween. The costume was made out of cotton and felt material with a tie on hat, at the time I thought it was made just for me.
To my surprise and temporary let down my older sister got to be the crayon that year and I was a clown instead. But the following year I was defiantly the red crayon. I looked forward to it all year long and wore the costume with pride.
