Five Photos, Five Stories: Day Four, Sonic the Hedgehog

Ritu from But I Smile Anyway invited me to participate in this challenge.

Five Photos, Five Stories. Like most challenges, it isn’t without rules, or better said, a loose set of guidelines:

  • Post a photo each day for five consecutive days
  • Attach a story to the photo.  It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you.
  • At the end of each day, nominate one other blogger to take part

For my Day Four nomination, I’m going to nominate ellesuperstar from Full Circle

Day Four: Upping the Ante on Halloween Costumes

For little Blondie’s second Halloween, I sewed his costume. He was Max from “Where the Wild Things Are”. wild maxHe roared his terrible roar. Since he was little, he didn’t solicit my mad costume making skills.

For the previous 3 Halloweens, we’ve ratcheted things up a few notches.

At 4 years old, he was a robot


At 5 he had to be R2D2R2

And finally, my greatest challenge…Sonic the Hedgehog.

FullSizeRender (1)

Sonic is the product of an Old Navy sweatsuit, foam, felt and a lot of time with a needle and thread. Blondie felt super fast that day.

We start planning for next year soon, just to give me a few months to wrap my head around it. We are shooting for Minecraft Steve, but the catch is Blondie wants diamond armor. Hmmmmm….
