The search for the next costume is on.Since Henry turned two, Halloween has become one of my favorite holidays. It's that time of the year when I can turn him into something scary. See, I wanted to do away with the usual kiddie costumes, i.e. super heroes, animals, cartoon characters. It's a given, all kids are cute, so I didn't find it a challenge to make them even cuter with these costumes. But turning a cute kid into something scary, now that's a challenge.
Henry's first Halloween party was at preschool when he was two. Since this one was at preschool, I just turned him into a little devil. I know he wasn't at all scary in this but all I could think of when I got this was Junior from Problem Child. Now who wouldn't be scared to have a child like him?

However, when it was time for the Trick or Treat party at our village that year, I turned him into this...
Yep, I turned my son into Toshio. And, the only things that I needed were baby powder, lipstick and eye shadow. Most of the small kids,and some of the big ones, got scared of him. He almost won the scariest costume that year. He was the 2nd placer.
Last year, everyone was talking about The Walking Dead. So, I turned him into a zombie doctor. Again, baby powder and lipstick did the trick. The scrubs were pasalubong (gift) from the States.
His dad was one of the judges for best costume that year, so obviously, he didn't get to win. But he did end up in 2nd place again.
I still have do not know what Henry will go as this Halloween. Here are some of the ideas that I have:
Hopefully, we get to pull one of these off. And, maybe finally win best costume this year. What do you think? Do you have any suggestions?
