So it’s under a week until Halloween and what’s a Blythe to do if their owner can’t sew (or just doesn’t have time to sew) and there’s not enough time for that pretty outfit to come in via the mail? Improvise! My dolls had a bit of a discussion to come up with the three best ideas that they had for cheap and easy Halloween costume ideas:
- Birthday Suit: Not only is it quick and easy, it also doesn’t involve needing to change! (A minor suggestion: include some black privacy bars.) Cost: nothing (or black cardstock).
- Mummy: Wrap yourself up in tissue! Downside, you probably can’t run around in it without it ripping. Cost: only tissue (and your dignity).
- Yarn Ball: Take any old ball of yarn, unravel it, wrap it around yourself until you become ball-like. Cost: only yarn (and a potential hospital bill for when you trip over yourself).
However, after much debate that went from Halloween costumes to the fact that Sophie needs more clothes in general because her massive wardrobe just isn’t large enough, the general consensus among the Blythes here at my house that it’s better to be a doll wearing something rather than a doll wearing, well, nothing at all. So don’t go with a Birthday Suit, even if it is one of the cheapest options there is (you never know who may be lurking with a camera).
