Insomnia: the creative mind’s curse


I can’t sleep. Imagine that…

I have an idea. Born from the madness that comes from sleep deprivation. It is a wonderful idea, but I learned from another blogger that it is okay to talk about things without telling people exactly what you’re talking about…

I regress. I have a wonderful idea, which hopefully I will remember when I am a fully functioning rested individual.

My post tonight is slightly related to my great idea, in a roundabout way.

Anyway, if I do it, I’ll be doing it here as well, so get ready to be…well, I guess we’ll just have to see what you think about it when the time comes.

Halloween

Halloween and kids go together like peanut butter and jelly. A lot of adults are getting into Halloween now too.

Most of my readers know that I’m in a wheelchair, so I’ve been trying to think of some ideas that could incorporate the chair into the costume.

A few years ago I dressed up like a prisoner in an “electric chair”. It was fun and funny. Anyway, there are a lot of kids and adults in wheelchairs, and instead of just dressing up and sitting in a chair, here are some ideas to incorporate and decorate it.

Kids:

Prince or princess in a throne. (Could probably just buy a princess outfit and some shiny gold material to drape the chair in. Stick on Velcro is a good way to secure the material to keep it out of the wheels.

Jack in the box- dress torso in stripes representing the spring and wear white mittens and doll type face makeup. A large upside down box painted bright colors can be the box. You should use an additional piece of cardboard against the backrest like the lid. And make a tinfoil handle you could attach to the box.

If you are an adult, the jack in the box idea could be turned into a stripper in a gift box. Stuff tissue paper around your legs, and wear a sexy top with a large bow on your head.

That’s all I can think of so far. If anyone has ideas, feel free to share them in the comments.
