Halloween is just around the corner, but us Park Slope parents have had the occasion on our minds for a hella long time already.
Everyone knows NYC takes Halloween crazy seriously. Last year I was in Manhattan and didn't see one kid dressed up, yet every adult was dressed in the whackest shit ever. I even saw a police man dressed up like it was ain't no thing.
Park Slope is no exception, except here the focus is on costuming our precious children. I swear, it's all the 6 o'clock crowd of parents at the park seem to talk about.
However, the Halloween pop-up shop and the "offish" Lady Gaga costumes can go suck some dick, because apparently hand-made outfits are where its at. Yeah, there will be the usual number of spider men n' junk, but their costumes will be made out of felt and they'll have hemp webs spewing out of their hands. In fact, I predict more than a few costumes will be making their way down 7th Ave made out of recyclable materials, possibly with eco friendly themes. I mean, there's nothing more adorable than a child with "save our planet" embroidered on their onesie, right?
In case you need inspiration, Homecrafted Halloween over at Ohdeedoh reccomends using a loom to make your kid's Draco Malfoy scarf. [ed note: DUH].
It's SO ON other moms. I began felting my wool months ago.
