Gruffalo, one of his favourite characters over the last year. His little brother was The Little Brown Mouse. I found Oscar's costume via Etsy, and Axel's was a simple addition of tail and ears to a brown suit from H&M. Our festivities kicked off with a trip to Papa's office, where Oscar fast got over his initial shyness and then ran riot and fit the bill looking like a true Barbarian. Advertising agencies are full of toys, right, so he had a ball.
Halloween 313: a local Clinton Hill institution. It's a theatre production in front of someone's house that's been running for years. We went along, and it was fabulous. Oscar throughly enjoyed it – perched on Papa's shoulders, clued to the action. We caught the first show which started at 5.30pm, then slowly headed home past all the trick-or-treaters to pop to tired little bunnies in their bed. And that, was Halloween!
