It was sad because I was chatting with one of my students and I asked why he didn't dress up. He said he actually was all dressed up in his pirate costume this morning and when he got to school, he saw through the window some kids not dressed up. He was so afraid that he was going to be the only one dressed up that he had his mom drive him back home and he changed. When he got to school, he was definitely in the minority :-). Poor little guy.
Most creative costume:
A mushroom. My student dressed in all tan and carried around a red umbrella with spots on it.
Most common costume:
One of my boys dressed up as killer grandma. He wore his thick white socks pushed in to some black heels he got from his grandma. By the end of the day, he was in his tennis shoes. That's right, boys have no idea what we women do for fashion. He claimed his heel broke :-).
Best costume in pairs:
A ketchup bottle and mustard bottle
Best Teacher Costume:
Mother goose. She had a huge goose around her middle and her legs were inside the gooses legs. There were fake legs on either side of the goose. It looked like she was riding on the goose. It was hilarious.
