Today each class (Freshman thru Senior) chose a time period to dress up as. Big C’s class chose the Neolithic Age. He came home on Tuesday complaining that he had nothing remotely caveman-like to wear and it would put a damper on his spirited streak. I gave him a reassuring pat and told him to have a little faith in his momma.
With some great coupons from Joann’s and a quick trip to Party City, we came up with this caveman costume for $12. I quickly sewed him a leopard tie out of faux fur and a cave man “dress” out of brown fleece, using one of his t-shirts as a basic pattern. Both were 40% off and then another 20% off the entire bill. Score. I picked up a $2 bag of bones from party city to make a necklace and a large bone (that’s what’s in his hand) for him to us to kill food or bonk a woman on the head.
The craftsmanship is bare bones. It’s right up my alley – fake sewing. But it made him really happy and was fun to do! He’s had such a fun week.
This picture was taken at 6:30 this morning and those dirty dishes are STILL in the sink. Time to get to work!
PS. Here is his Wild, Wild West outfit:
