For March is Reading Month this year, our theme at school was Space Exploration. The vast majority of the activities for the month were science based, but one week we decided to have little bit of fun with Dress Like an Alien Day. S and K were thrilled and quickly put in their requests. K knew immediately she wanted to be Oh from the movie Home.
Her Boov vest is an adapted version of this pattern and I was thrilled to get help making her nostricles (the antenna-like things on her head) from a nice woman I discovered on Instagram. She was kind enough to share all the nostricle-making knowledge she learned from making her own Boove costume. Mine certainly need weren't perfect, but K was thrilled with her hat - though she was quite disappointed that we didn't have any lavender face paint.
Much to my dismay, my son wanted a brain slug from Futurama. (Not my favorite show to be sure, but that's a post for another day.) He knows Futurama is not a show I particularly like, so he found the pattern and emailed it to me. Well, how could I say no to that? I know, I couldn't, so he got his brain slug - which ended up being pretty darn cute.
