Hi guys! I’ve been absent from the blog while I’m working on some other goals (along with the ever-slow-going progress on the house), so I’m just going to post whenever and pretend like I’ve never been away. OK?
So, what’s on my mind tonight, you ask?
That’s one of the new costumes from this year’s Pottery Barn Halloween collection.
Reminds me a little bit of this oft-pinned version made by an Etsy seller, no?
And who could forget this lobster in a pot costume that was all over Pinterest last year?
Well, here’s this year’s family version from Pottery Barn Kids:
Pretty interesting right? I can just picture all the product people at Pottery Barn scouring Pinterest right now for the latest trends in Halloween costumes to develop for next year. What’s that popular quote about how the work you do when you procrastinate is the work you should be doing for the rest of your life?
Well, how do I get that job?
As far as legal/ethical issues are concerned, well, I’m not quite sure. Pottery Barn probably had to pay a pretty penny for the rights to use the Where the Wild Things Are costumes, and can you really “own” the idea of a baby dressed up like a lobster in a pot? Declaring oneself pre-law freshman year in order to get into a preferred dorm does not a lawyer make, unfortunately. What do you and your non-expert opinions think about it?
I’m erring on the side of genius.
