As you might remember from last year's Halloween costume, Lily has a taste for strange outfits. Mind you, last year she only had a slight say in choosing her amazing 2 scoop ice cream get-up, but this year it was clear from the start. She wanted to be a blue goat.
From easily 2 months out we asked her 'Lily, what do you want to be for Halloween this year?!' and she would simply answer 'A blue goat!'. This was funny for a while until we realized she was completely serious. She wanted a blue goat costume, and that was that. I think her inspiration was the occasional goat herd drop-off next to her daycare whose job it is to mow the lawn. That and her favorite color now is blue, though i think that just changed to purple.
Tanya thankfully is pretty qualified in creating such costumes and was able to get a cheap blue sweatshirt from Amazon and sewed up a nice tail, beard, as well as ears and horns. Not too bad. Lily was a little unsure of things when all was said and done, but when she saw her daycare buddies wearing theirs and realized she was going to get a lot of attention it was game on.
