"I used to be a mother"

Check out these fantastic costumes that Brad's mom made when he was a kid!

E.T. with Stripe and Gizzmo from Gremlins.


And here's my sister in law Christy in her old Superman costume! Debi didn't make this one but I had to post the picture of 30 year old Christy in it!
I totally wish I could sew. Even a little bit. I dont necessarily need to make costumes of this caliber but I'd love to sew my boys some pajama pants or something. It just seems like something Moms should be able to do. Ya know?

Hahahah! Love it! Does Christi know you posted this for all the world to see? :p Aunt Debi is so talented. I never knew she sewed.

I hear ya. I wish I could sew a lot better, I'm a total beginner. But I think it's cheaper to buy clothes and stuff rather then make them, most of the time. Still, it's a good skill and more meaningful if you make it.

Awesome costumes. I like the E.T. one.

sewing PJ pants is easy. It is 4 straight lines. I can show you some time.

Or like, even if I could just you know, be comfortable sewing on a button. No, I mean seriously. I'm even scared of that . . .

dude, is that Brad/Cohen clone in that one picture? Holy cow they are indistinguishable.

Jill said...

Steven, I'm laughing at you. That picture is Cohen wearing the costume that Brad wore as a kid. lol! It's not a picture of Brad from 27 years ago!

In response to Laurens comment.......No I did not know that it was on her blog until now! Brad took the picture on his phone! Little did I know it would travel this far. Thanks Jill, thanks!!!
By the way, I'm still 29 : )
