My school is one of the few that still allows kids to dress for Halloween. We call it Storybook Character Day, and we encourage students and staff to dress up. I have a Bah, Humbug! attitude toward Halloween costumes and lost learning time, but they talked me into it. I dressed as (did anyone guess this?) Minerva McGonagall
from the Harry Potter series. With a simple black cape ($12 from Lillian Vernon
), my hair in a bun, my reading glasses on my nose, and a name sticker that proclaimed, "Hello, my name is Minerva" I greeted the incoming students at the morning bell.
Down the hall are three very creative teachers. They dressed as a unit in black from head to toe, with....
Oh, a picture is worth a thousand words, or in this case, three. I present to you:
Three Blind Mice.
Extra Costume Credit goes to my darling son, Amigo, who loaned them an old cane so that they could make theirs look authentic.
