No Purple

I am sooooo bummed!  I was all excited about Piper's costume and just got an email from good old Kmart.com to tell me my order was canceled.  I called to find out why and the woman on the phone told me that all 3 costumes were out of stock.  Um, really???????  WTH?  All THREE?  I'm not too worried about Caroline and Bryce as Wonder Woman costumes are easy to find and Bryce can be any super hero he wants, but Piper's costume, well, that was the ONLY purple crayon costume I could find anywhere online.  Well, for kids at least.  There's no short supply of the "sexy" Wisteria crayon costume.  (I do NOT get or like the sexy costume trend - makes me want to vomit.)   Plus, she's 2.  Try explaining that a costume is out of stock to a 2 year old.  Should be fun.

So I guess unless there is one in a random brick and mortar store, I'm not going to find one for Pipes.  She totally was excited about it too and kept asking me where here purple was.  Cry.  Back to the drawing board, I suppose.  At least I did it early enough that I have time to figure something else out.

And, yes, I realize it's a simple costume but I don't think I'm going to have the time or patience to make it.....I wish I had never shown it to her.

IT's grandmother to the rescue. I think it could be pretty easy to make. I'll just make a trip to Joanne's. We can plan on Sunday.
