    My P just sent everybody a text saying he would like all teachers to participate in book character dress up day on Wednesday. Well, that doesn't give me a whole lot of time to get sometime together! :mad: These things usually annoy me, but I'm actually game for this, lol. I'm just having trouble thinking of a character. I want a character that is popular enough the kids might know what I'm going for. I'd love to be Effie Trinket. :blush: I can order a pink wig, but the dress might be an issue.

    Any ideas for the Effie costume or something else??

    Thanks for the suggestions! I really appreciate them. I'm thinking about Katniss, now. I've been wanting a new pair of boots, and I need a new jacket. So, I was thinking khaki jean-type pants that I can tuck into boots, a leather jacket, and the Mockingjay pin. And...I've got a little dinky bow and arrow set!!!!! Or...I might get a cheap backpack somewhere and sew "12" on it. Oooohhhhh!!!! I'm getting giddy!!!! I'm such a dork. :lol:

    I was Katniss for our character day. Super easy! Black Tee, olive pants, boots, jacket, mockingjay pin, and the braid, of course.

    I have to have it all together by Wednesday! Buying things depend on how cheap I can find them on Amazon or at Walmart. :p But, I think Effie would be soooooo much fun!

    Okay, I'm old and out of the loop. What's FYE?
