Then, a few weeks ago, he started talking about dressing like the planet Saturn. I didn't want to buy or make him a new costume, so I started convincing him that the stripes on his costume were Saturn's rings and the antennae were Saturn's moons. He actually seemed ok with it. But I think at school when he told his therapists that he was dressed like Saturn, they felt sorry for him and fixed his costume a little. When I picked him up from school he looked like this:
He had all of Saturn's 62 moons hanging from the ring. So he loved his new costume and we brought the ring and moons with us trick-or-treating. Which was fine until he decided it was too cold and he wanted to just ride in the stroller. Then he had a few M&Ms, which made his face chocolatey (which looked like dirt) and people began guessing that he was an escaped convict. I can see where they'd get that.
Bottom line: I made an extremely versatile Halloween costume this year with some good ol' duct tape.
