Homemade Halloween

It's a bird!

It's a plane!


That's right. My husband is a pastor-dork who thought it would be a great idea to dress up as a made-up character, "Absolution Man".
Because he's a pastor and part of a pastor's job is absolving people of their sins.

So, being a highly supportive and creative wife, I made him a costume... without a sewing machine! Thank goodness for iron-on fusible tape.

I dressed as a bag of jelly beans.

While both of our costumes were a big hit at the party we attended, neither of us won the costume competition. It went to another couple from our church who came as a bride and her mother. (The husband was the bride and his wife was the mother of the bride. She fussed over him all night fixing his bra straps that kept showing and reminding him to put his legs together and sit like a lady. Hilarious!)

Can't wait til next year!
...maybe by then I'll have a sewing machine.

We were going to do Absolution Man about two years ago...but instead did baseball player and his biggest fan. but last year was my fav...greg had to preach so he wore his regular stuff and I was a nun! Love the jelly belly's too..great idea!

Nice floor. Wonder who your contractor was??? Oh...and I like the J B outfit. "Absolution Man" needs a costume "adjustment". More when you're in Indy for Christmas.
