Honestly, I hadn't given it much thought. My daughter is going as a Storm Trooper and thought I could be Princess Leia. That would be fun but would require me buying a costume.
“How about ‘Monday Morning Mom,’ like I was last year?” That requires only pajamas, a sleep mask and coffee. I can almost do that in my sleep, LOL. Lukewarm reaction. “Glam witch?” Meh. “Let's just stick with Pajama Mom.” All righty, then! That's what I really wanted to do anyway.
Last night on our walk, she came up with an amazing superhero persona for me: Lady Chakra. Backstory, alter ego, everything. My sidekick is a sloth named Namaste. My superpower is lighting up chakras and transforming energy by shooting lotus flowers out of me. My costume took a lot of thinking. We had to do another block just to sort it out. I wanted a cape. “No cape, Mom. Superheroes don't have them.” (Except for Superman, Batman, and Batgirl, but I digress.) What we came up with was a gold lamé jumpsuit with light-up chakras. BOOM! That will take a while to make--definitely something I cannot whip up before Halloween.
Then it hit me. The perfect, no-cost Halloween costume. Check out my pictures. Guess what it is. Give up? A RADIATER!!
Get it? I crack myself up. Apparently it's a good one; even my jaded 10-year-old thought it was pretty clever. Should anyone need their energies boosted or their chakras aligned, however, I can always turn into Lady Chakra in cognito fix them up with my lotus blossom rays!
