Halloween Choices

After Nicole and Oliver snagged up a really cute monkey outfit at Old Navy, Cory and I have been wondering what Dot should be for Halloween. Before she was born we thought it would be cute for her to be a lobster..something about a tiny baby with big pincers was really endearing. But now that she's here she has proven capable to make a more realistic portrayal of some of our favorite characters. Here is a recent pic of Dot for a refresher- let me know which would be the best fit...


First there is of course the Doozer from Fraggle Rock. All we would need is a red hard hat and a pair of overalls and she would be doozing it up for delicious candy. I especially like this image as it mimics Dot's perpetual expression of awe.


Second there is the classic "Stay Puff Marshmallow Man" which would make her Grandpa happy seeing as it is from his all-time favorite movie. This one would be a little more complicated to recreate and it is of course very common for people to say their fat baby looks like this bulbous mountain of goo- but look at the jolly face and I think you can see where I'm coming from...



I realized the third option last night while Dotty was at work with me playing with a tin of candy featuring this iconic character. Everything is perfect, the bitty eyes, the round nose and the disporportinate head to body ratio. We might have a winner if Cory agrees. What are your thoughts?

I have to go with Marshmallow man....I'm sorry but seeing her all white like that somehow and in a sailor costume would be so funny....or she could be that tire guy also.....which both work. Hello Kitty would be cute since she's a girl and all and the Fraggle Rock guy would be cool too...but my vote would have to go with Ghostbuster's Marshmallow man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you guys do that....I might have to come down and hang out for the tricker treating......

I don't think you should rule out the lobster yet... but I also don't know how you are going to decide because those are the coolest ideas ever!

Alice and jackie vote for Hello Kitty - since they both had hello kitty toothbrushes they thought were cool. I think that rather than go AS hello kitty, she should go as the leader of the Hello Kitty fan club and just be a ll decked out in Hello Kitty clothes -
Another idea - Yoda - not because she looks like yoda, just because it would be fun to have a little jedi master in the house.

i am always partial to images like the stay puff marshmallow man for chubby babies, but since sam was the pillsbury dough boy the image may be too masculin for the little dot. i too will have to go with hello kitty.

How about the hotdog- another Old Navy special I saw this year. Last year, I had Charlie as a chubby chicken and Jane as an egg. Halloween is so cool. Oh how I wish little Dot would Trick or Treat at our house.

I think the Dot could pull off any of these costumes and more. I'm fond of the Doozer but I'm wondering how many people would "get it". So I also vote for Hello Kitty.

I vote for doozer but yet again I have a thing for read-heads so I might be a little bias. I think she will look super cute in anything!
