Love it! I'm obsessed with all things squid, so I'll probably make one for myself eventually.

There is nothing on earth more entertaining than watching a pack of half-grown puppies playing in snow for the very first time.

I can never get it together to make a whole costume so I just do accessories!

This is so cool! I'm sure you'll get use out of this after the holiday.

I hope you post pics of your costume - it sounds really fun.
