My brother, Luke, is 12 this year, and he was having trouble thinking of a costume. So I thought of the saying ‘When life gives you lemons…’ and we came up with this!
We wanted to keep the costume plain. No logo tee shirts, no bright colors. So Luke just wore jeans and a white tee shirt (he wore under armor when he went trick or treating because it was chilly). Our mom happened to have some “Hello, my name is” stickers lying around. We took one of those and he wrote ‘Life’ on it (I suggested writing it right on the shirt, across his chest, but he decided against it). Then, I wrote ‘Lemons’ on an old pillow case that he used for his candy bag, which looked even better once he had candy in it.
A lot of people got a good laugh out of it, and it cost us absolutely nothing! He even won 3rd place in a costume contest!
