Nedra:  Ok, uh, Beth, are you gonna dress-up for Halloween this year?

Beth:  I really want to dress up this year, but I can’t come up with like something really cool and different. I’m trying really hard to think of ideas, but so far I’m at a loss.

Nedra:  Really? I mean, you can always just throw on some angel wings or something like that, ya know, it’s pretty easy.

Beth:  Yeah, I’ve done that in the past, but I like costumes that are really innovative and kinda with the times. I think it’s neat when people come up with characters out of recent films.

Nedra:  Yeah, that is, that takes a lot of work. I, I gotta admit, I’m pretty impressed with those.

Beth:  Do you have a plan for this Halloween?

Nedra:  Oh yes, I’m gonna be Wonderwoman.

Beth:  That’s cool. Do you have your, uh, costume ready?

Nedra:  I’m working on it, uh, tonight, and tomorrow night, and the next night.

Beth:  So what do you need? Like a cape and uh, some, headband and big boots?

Nedra:  Yeah, exactly I, um, I painted some boots red and now I’m sewing, um,on the eagle on the shirt and things like that.

Beth:  That’s so cool. I can’t wait to see your costume.

Nedra:  Thanks! I can’t wait either.

I am so inspired by Nedra’s ideas. She is very prepared for Halloween. I have some new ideas about my costume. Nedra made it sound so easy. I can’t wait to see her Wonderwoman costume.
Remember to be creative when you think of a costume this year. Look around your house for ideas and ask your friends for help.
Happy Halloween!
