All of my friends call me “red” for Red Fraggle, so for Halloween a few years ago I decided to surprise them and show up.  I didn’t like the store bought costume, so I set on a mission to match the costume myself.  It was a challenge but ultimately accomplished.

I found the orange shorts on the Wildwood Boardwalk, had to mail order the exact yellow tights, shop in the women’s section of JC Penny for the shorts and then made the tail from stuff at Michaels.  I tried to think of creative ways to do feet, but decided to just go with comfy slipper for the night.  I walked in and my friends were hysterical.
