costume party

since we refrain from celebrating Halloween as the world does, our family doesn't get very many opportunities to play dress up.  this new year's eve, we've been invited to a costume party.  our whole family!  how fun, right?!
so, here's the plan.  if you have any ideas that are free or extremely cheap, let me know.

otter:  minion, from despicable me
me:  red riding hood, from the story book little red riding hood.
wolfie:  merida, from brave
binkles:  a monarch butterfly, from planet earth
jones:  hal Jordan as a green lantern, from the green lantern
boo:  elsa, from frozen
starboy:  spiderman, from the marvel comics
buttercup:  TBD --this is where I could use some ideas!

so far we've limited our expenses.  we still need to take a trip to some of the second-hand stores.  I just have the perfect "red riding hood" cape, I don't know what to wear underneath...  we need a yellow hoodie (size lg.) for otter pop, and a pair of blue overalls (size whatever he'd be).  wolfie is also looking for a better cover-it-all green dress.  she'll probably make her bow, arrows, and quiver (or whatever it is that holds all the arrows on a belt.)

anyway, we're excited and hoping to bring home a prize or two...  stay tuned and next year i'll let you know how it went.  maybe i'll even post a picture or eight.  :)
