It's a Wrap - Halloween 2019
You all know that DC loves Halloween, so I won't go through that whole bit.
A Costume for every party and another for Halloween itself.
As someone who has ALWAYS loved Halloween, I am all for it.
The costume parade is not as long as it used to be with less and less parties and events to attend, but we still managed four wardrobe changes this season, so we are still happy.
You may have seen his first pick in my last post "Another Week (or so) In The Life".
He decided out of the clear "blue" sky (see what I did there?) that he wanted to be Sully from Monsters Inc. for his camp party.
Other than the fact that I haven't seen him watch, read or even mention Monster's Inc, I thought it was a good choice for that particular party. It is normally a bit cold at camp so this would be perfect.
Not only did he choose a costume that was from a 19 year old movie that I hadn't heard him mention recently, but another camper had the same idea. What are the chances of him meeting another Sully at the party?
(19 year old film is not all that odd for DC - he was "Jim Dear" from Lady and the Tramp last year)
It was not as chilly as is usually is at camp so we definitely should have saved this costume for his next wardrobe change...

Heading to the camp fundraising table. This is the extra, just in case costume we get... just in case.
It’s a King but with Mr. Disney around a plain and simple king costume can be many different characters.
DC says that he is King Stefan (from Sleeping Beauty), so that is exactly who he is!
Let me tell you... It was FREEZING!
We don't wear coats over costumes. It's a rule. Look it up.
We stuff as much as possible under the costume. He was wearing thermal underwear, pants and more than one shirt over the thermals but the "boy" can't ever leave his sleeves down.
If he could push the sleeves up on a winter coat, he will and does.

After many years of searching for an adult Chip costume, I found one last year. Then, whatever event he was going to wear it (with Mrs. Potts, of course) got cancelled or something. He finally got to wear it this year with his Buddy at the Best Buddies Walk.
(She saved me from having to wear it on Halloween)
It rained the day of the walk, but there just happens to be a parking garage right on the grounds where they usually hold the walk it so the walk went on.
It was a 'little' (a LOT) louder than usual, being basically indoors with music playing, all of the people and games crowded into that small of an area. We had to walk around to the other side of the garage to find some quiet a few times but in the end, he had a great time.
And Finally - it was Halloween.

To you, he’s a Wizard. To DC, he’s Merlin from “Disney’s Sword and The Stone”. He’s dressed way too early. The rain seems to be taking a little break but the wind is picking up.
Happy Halloween! #AllDisneyAllOfTheTime
(19 year old movie? That was nothing... We're hitting 46 years with this one)
He had fun with this friends Trick-Or-Treating. He was very proud of his costume....
even though no one called him Merlin.
Only 364 Day Until Halloween!
(The photo at the head of this post is the driveway to camp. I look forward to seeing it with all of the leaves changing every year. There used to be trees lining both sides of the driveway which made it even more spectacular looking in the fall.
Still pretty even now that they are gone)
