There have been many a Thing 1 and Thing 2 costumes, but we wanted to do something that was cool yet comfortable since we live in Hawaii. My daughter and her best friend put together these Homemade Thing 1 and Thing 2 Costumes with their own clothes; a red blouse, red tights and a blue wig!! Simple! Cool! Cute! Comfy! The girls stayed together all day at school looking for their Cat in the Hat escort, but, through the process found other costumed friends.. Waldo, teletubies, some ninjas but no Cat in the Hat.
