Thanks! It was fun but just a little sad that it was so short.
My wife has been pretty busy so this year her costume and mine came from stuff we pieced together from a recycle shop here. I just bought the blazer and she found the white summer dress. The kids sewed their own little decorations on to some dresses and my son's costume was bought on Amazon. I got him some steam punk goggles but he didn't seem to happy about it. He didn't want to put on any creepy goth make-up and wouldn't let us gel his hair. I found his lack of faith disturbing.
I made the neck bolts out of foam, of course. We stuck them on with double-sided tacking tape. Since the foam is light, they stayed on ok.
This year was great, but I feel like I'm running out of ideas. I know I don't need to reinvent the whole thing every year but I like it when we have an all new look for the party. The pressure is already on.
No alien theme yet ... I'll put it on the list
