Earlier this week I made a simple request on the Mommy Shorts Facebook Fanpage: “Whose got an infant and a camera?” Forty people responded and then about half emailed me for further instruction. Approximately half of those people actually followed through.
Photograph your baby in the cheapest dumbest easiest Halloween costumes possible. Use props around your house and do as many as you like.
Examples: Drape a kermit frog over your baby and call her Lady Gaga. Stick a black pipe cleaner above your baby’s lip and call him Salvatore Dali. Prop your baby next to a tool box and some wainscoting and call him Ty Pennington.
You get the idea?
Here’s what you guys came up with:
Thank you to Brianne, Tracy, Denae, Gina, Ashley, Farrah, Chrissy, Kris D, Britney, Kristen, Hillary, Vanessa, Pam and Marlana for honoring my inane request. You guys did AWESOME. I sincerely hope you all had fun with it.
If anyone else would like to make a cheap-ass-last-minute-no-effort costume for their baby, it’s not too late. Just post it on the wall of the Mommy Shorts Facebook Fanpage.
And EVERYONE should post pictures of their kids in their ACTUAL HALLOWEEN COSTUMES next week. I’m gonna give awards for the best costumes next Friday.
Have a good weekend and buy your candy before only the crappy stuff is left!
