We don’t do Halloween, but over the years, I had collected quite an assortment of costumes.  I have many of the typical thrift-store finds, and a few grandparent gifts.  When my dad used to deploy, he would buy the native outfits for that country and send them home.  I have clothing from Korea, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey.  They come in very handy for cultural lessons, but we do so few of those right now, that finally, one day, I put all the costumes in a drawer for the kids to play dress up with.  They love it!  Although, it does make for interesting conversation when visitors drive by and see Winnie the Pooh or Fairy Princesses running around.  And I have no idea who this is:

I think it's part Peter Pan, part little Korean boy, and no clue what else.
