Decisions, Decisions

We're not as far along as we should be in the Halloween costume creation department.  I've pretty much made the executive decision that Susie has to be a princess (because we have the dress - why else?); but Rachel fell in love with this costume that I saw on Pinterest.  It should be really easy to make, but the devil - as always - is in the details.  Tell me, what shape balloons do I need to buy so that, when half-blown-up, they will resemble jelly beans?  Round?  Long?  Does it matter?  Because, really, I haven't the foggiest idea.  I know I should just buy both and the heck with it - it will still be the cheapest costume ever.  But, somehow, I've looked at balloons several times at Target and Michaels and still come home empty-handed.

Just tell me what to do, will you?  I am being plagued by indecision here.

  1. The water balloon size should work fine. They are small and pear shaped. Close enough! I'm sure that's what was used in the picture. Signed, a veteran of the water balloon wars.

  2. I love that costume! So fun. I think it'd more the overall affect and not the specific size/shape of the balloon. I wouldn't stress it. ;-)

  3. What about that big Jelly Belly decal? How are you not wondering where to find that?

    1. David copied the image of the logo into a word doc and then I emailed it to someone with a color printer. Where there's a will, there's a way...

  4. But that is one COOL costume idea! (Until she sits down...)

  5. That is a great costume! My thought is that if it is Oct 30, it doesn't matter what shape the balloons are.

  6. That's fun! I would go with the water balloons, too.

    Princess could also be made scary with makeup, or accessorized with something weird (like the way Repunzel carried a frying pan in Tangled).

    1. No! I HATE scary! Scary costumes are banned in our house. Just another issue for the kids to hold against me when they are grown...
