Foot-eating babies, and other weird Halloween crap

This past Saturday Richard and I took the boys up to the Blockbuster-Video-turned-Halloween-store place so they could pick out their costumes. Normally they just page through the free magazines that show up at the house, pick something and I order it. This year, we decided to actually do some looking around at all the Halloween nonsense that's for sale out there. And there's a ton.

Most of the stuff is typical Halloween crap that jumps out at you from behind bushes or mannequins with disgusting, bloody faces and dangling eyeballs, but I noticed one thing that made me stop and actually take a picture.

Huh? Apparently babies will eat their own feet on Halloween

Of course I had to text it to Megan. Her response? "WTF"

No clue, but I wouldn't be able to sleep knowing that thing is anywhere near my house.
I guess it's just some random "creative" guy's idea of something super gross for people to buy, throw on their porches, and gross out the neighbors. I bet that thing would be stolen more often than all those baby Jesuses in those public Nativity scenes.

No thanks, I'll stick to the happier Halloween stuff.

So back to the costume search.

The kids have been talking a lot about something called a "morph suit". And just like every other year, I have no idea what they're talking about until they either show me a picture or can articulate exactly what it is they want me to buy.

Apparently it's just a full body suit, mask and all. I guess the best way to describe it is it's sort of like one of the Blue Man Group outfits. Sort of.

I let the kids roam the store a little and Clifford decided to settle on this little gem of a "morph suit"....


So you're morphing into a bowling ball this year? This should be fun.

Alexander chose the regular slim-fitting morph suit with the skeleton features, but only because everything else was sold out.

Now the kids can effectively take the neighborhood by storm as a very convincing skeleton and his rolly-polly sidekick.

I predict some injuries this year.

  1. Didn't P Diddy (or was it Puff Daddy?) wear one of these in a video with Mase way back when?
