Halloween Costumes... the Fox takes Matters into his Paws

Hello again. Sandy Bear and Little Fox reporting from the West Coast (of Canada). We have been mulling over our Halloween Costumes and coming up blank... The deadline for Jerry & Ben's contest is Monday... sigh...

And then... Little Fox had a brain wave...

He scampered around the house and grabbed some plastic bags and toilet paper... Sandy looked a bit askance...

What are we going to do with this??? Little Fox had an idea...

Alright... first... we crumple some plastic bags and wad them onto the front of the bear...

 Then we tape them on... And add some more to the back... and some more....

Heehee!!!

Help?

Alright then, almost done... (muffled grunts from the Bear).

What do you think?? All we need is... a nose.

Little Fox had seen the garden the day before...

Nice fall colours!

Ah-hah!!! Carrots!

That one will do (it's bucketing rain).

Perfect!

Now for a bit of wire...

And voila!!! A nose for our snowbear... (more muffled grunts from the bear).

What do you think? Pretty good nose, eh?

OK...so we have the Bear Costume...

Sandy the Abominable SnowBear!

Complete with carrot nose.

And over here... well... you've heard of Jack in the Box?

Well... poof!!

It's Fox in a Box!! (eh... tin... box... same same).

Well, at least the Fox had fun.

Oh... and just so we have some seasonal decor... some gourds from the garden. What's that Sandy?? You want out??

Oh my goodness!!! It's hot in there!

What a mess... This was sort of a team costume effort... Little Fox's genius and Sandy's patience!
