I would have been between 10 and 11, my sister 8 or 9. We decided to make our own costumes that year. REALLY cute ideas. They ended badly. I decided to go as a picnic table. Basically, put cardboard on your front, add a tablecloth and glue down food. Jessica decided to go as a bag of jellybeans. Clear plastic trashbag with coloured balloons in it.
So we're all excited to trick or treat. We walk out to the drive way and POOF the WHOLE front of my costume just falls off. So much for that idea.
As we're walking around later, Jessica suddenly starts leaking balloons. I guess the trash bag had ripped and they start slowly "pooping" out.
I guess that's what you get when you try and make cheap costumes =D
