Halloween 2019, we are thrift shopping for Halloween costumes, And my 4 year old finds the blood spattered dress in the photo I’ve shared, She wants it. I tell her we can get it if she can think of what her costume would be, . Her original plan was to be a bat. she is very science minded, loves bats. She looks at the dress for a few minutes and tells me quite confidently that she is going to be a bloody cow being eaten by vampire bats. I was impressed with the idea and suggested we make a felt face mask with a ribbon tie to which she replied with her most convincing Expressions of excitement “no, it needs to be a WHOLE head.”
Later in the week we found your site and now Halloween will never be the same!
This year her ideas are A Komodo dragon, a robot, or hornet larvae (also her idea when she heard Her dad and I talk about making hornet masks)
We ended up making two cow masks. dad and I wore them to our local Halloween bash and then our daughter affixed the blood and bats and wore one to preschool and to go trick-or-treating.
