I've gotten off easy for Halloween over the last 7 years. Each of my kids wore the same costume for 7 years: one was a Beanie Baby Squirrel, and the other was a grey squirrel. This year, B. decided to surprise the other kids and wanted to be a sushi roll. This took a bit of engineering; my husband created an armature out of fiberglass, tiewraps and plastic sheets; covered with black plastic bags this looked a lot like nori.
The top was constructed with white felt and sewn onto the fiberglass ring. When we glued on styrofoam packing peanuts to look like rice, we had a Bobby Roll. Cute enough to eat! Won "Best Costume" at a party already!
