A Christmas Story kind of Halloween

A Christmas Story kind of Halloween

Happy Halloween! or Happy Christmas Halloween!?

“His Aunt Clara always sends the nicest gifts.”

I got this fun idea to do, A Christmas Story, Halloween Theme. I always thought my son resembled a Ralph or even Home Alone Kevin. 😉

The search was on. I could not find a pink bunny costume anywhere!!! The ones online were too big and way too expensive. Especially if I was not sure it would even fit my little guy.

Our local Halloween Shop carried a perfect, toddler size WHITE Bunny Costume. The ears on the hood drooped but it was adorable anyway. And comfortable. I got the idea to dye it.

Got it home, did some research. Apparently you can not dye synthetic fibers with liquid dye, for fear of ruining the fur all together and getting an uneven dye on top of that. WHAT AM I GOING TO DO!

I bought Brink Pink Hair Spray from Sally’s. It took 3 cans. But I sprayed and rubbed it in with my hands. IT WORKED!! Let it set in the sun a few days to really avoid residue and staining everything else.

I bought cheap fake glasses and pink rabbit ears that stood up.

My husband and I went to the thrift store and bought old nightgowns and pajamas like the family in A Christmas Story wore on Christmas Morning. Such a Blast! And a very BIG HIT.

We even had a few people ask if he was the ENERGIZER BUNNY! That would work too!
