Halloween Costumes...

Still no news... On with the show...
 
I saw what I thought would be a useful link in a Parenting.com spam message... A link to 100's of homemade cosutme ideas - I've bought Jim's for this year - he's going to be a puppy, but I thought it would be fun to look at what other very creative people have been up to. 
 
 
However, I was HORRIFIED at the very first entry I saw! Can you spot the issue?
 
 
 I keep wondering how long does this kid have before he passes out due to lack of oxygen? I think the costume is GREAT, but I can't help thinking this is a parenting FAIL. There are no obvious air holes, which means they aren't big enough to get him a reasonable amount of fresh air. That, and those balls - they will be lots-o-laughs when the kid trips, falls, hits his "globe" on the ground and gets a face-full of ball-pit-balls!!!  Ha! 
 
Really, these people obviously put some real time into that costume, but I'm hoping the lack-of-air fail isn't present in actuality. Ugh.

Hello! I sent you an email (sorry it took so long) in response to your comment about heparin. I'd love to read whatever you'd like to share with me.
Thanks!

referring to the gumball machine costume. It looks, from the reflection in the photo, like a face size hole is cut in the front. Let's hope so.
