EPIC. It all started when I found him trying to body surf across the candy bowl.
Well, the truth came out pretty quick: Critter has NEVER been trick-or-treating. Can you believe it?
So of course, I had to do something about it. And my kids. Together we dashed through the house, searching for suitable costumes. Hubby stood by and muttered something about us not being quite right in the head, but I'm sure I misheard.
There were some challenges. Like, erm, Critter's unique triangular shape.
Maybe we were going about this all wrong! Critter's in Canada, after all, and so what's more Canadian than Hockey? So, we turned him into a Calgary Flame!
So, Darian, Jarod and I put our heads together and twisted our brains around the problem. Maybe we ate some candy. Okay, okay...a LOT of candy.
We wanted something unique. Something crazy. Something totally bizarre that only the Ackerman family would think of.
And then finally, WE HAD IT! The PERFECT costume, build for his shape, light weight and even better, something that comes straight from one of my books!
We turned Critter into a tree-shaped air freshener. Doesn't he look cute?
(So now you're wondering why I wrote a book about a tree-shaped air freshener, aren't you?)
Actually the book was about zombie janitors who wore air fresheners to keep them 'fresh'. Because you know, I'm weird like that.
