Last month, Weston informed us that he wanted to be a tiger for Halloween. We browsed Amazon and let him picked the costume that struck his fancy and met our requirement of being reasonably priced. Two days and $30 later, a tiger costume was delivered to our door. Knowing we had a family-friendly Halloween party to attend, we brainstormed family costume ideas that would incorporate Weston as a Tiger. Because a family that dresses in Halloween costumes together, stays together. And that my friends, is how we became Siegfried & Roy this past Saturday.
Even though we had the idea for a couple of weeks, we procrastinated and didn’t even start working on our costumes until the day of the party. After quick trip to Goodwill, our costume bin, and Clay’s raiding of my closet, we emerged not-quite-but-close-enough versions of Siegfried & Roy. Our tigers may have been orange instead of their white and my wig is much more red than Siegfried’s blonde hair but meh, details. The other partygoers agreed that the blood on Clay’s neck and collar really pulled the costume together, much like The Dude’s living room rug.
Oh, and for those wondering, SARMOTI is an acronym for ‘Siegfried And Roy, Masters Of The Impossible’.
