They caught me at the ultimate weak moment. I was too cranky to put up much of a fight when they begged for overpriced costumes and accessories. I just wanted to get out of that store and away from the loud, animatronic zombies that kept startling me.
I ended up spending $100 on two cheaply made costumes! One. Hundred. Dollars! I stood at the register, disgusted with myself as I swiped my debit card, but it was too late to do anything. I’d said yes, they were overjoyed and I was thoroughly irritated. At least I was getting out alive.
But the Halloween costume regret was just beginning …
i can relate! I have made David’s costume every year (and I don’t sew!) but one year I broke down and bought him a green lantern costume. I had so much regret. Just yesterday I watched a realllllllly badly made youtube video on how to make hans solo’s belt … it was painful but hopefully worth it.
Ha! I just got in from buying the fabric to sew the Gryffindor Quiddich robe. Between the two of them I’ve definitely spent $100 again, except this time with all the work. Sigh.
