I wanted to give you all one more option in case you still haven’t come up with your Halloween costume. Now, if you decide to go with this, you better get your ass down to the local fabric store and start sewing pronto. You might have to skip lunch. Time is not on your side. In fact, if you must, skip the hat too.
This is a photo from the most recent Miss Universe pageant. It’s Miss USA Alyssa Campanella representing, duh, the United States. If Betsy Ross was still alive, it’s what she would wear for Halloween. I’m sure of it.
I found it on Linda Holmes’ blog, Monkey See, for NPR. (Great blog.)
