What you WON'T be for Halloween!

Unless you ordered early or already had one...yep, you guess it, Big Bird.

Our local news just ran a story about the scarcity of the costumes...companies are all sold out....no doubt they are selling on Ebay for inflated prices.

Big Bird may not have turned out to be a serious campaign theme on the trail, but you can bet the public at large isn't forgetting!

Edited to add there has NOT been a run on Mitt Romney masks. There are plenty of those in stock!

1. big bird costume patterns are available on ebay and etsy--but, as you said, for ridiculous prices.

mccall 8793 (kid sizes only) was what I could find.

still looking

2. I'm going to be Big Bird

I got my costume at Party City in New York City. It was $65. It cost about the same as the other costumes. I'm also making a sign that says U is for Unemployment

3. I almost ordered one right after

the debate, but got busy and forgot.

Now I regret it, because trick-or-treating in Oregon is not tropical. It's good to go as something warm and fuzzy!
