Homebaked Shakespeare

Halloween, as many of you beleaguered moms know, can be a walk of shame -- for you. It's the one day each year when all the "creative" mommies in the neighborhood get to strut their stuff. You know the ones we're talking about: the ladies who make their own, really unusual costumes for their kids and then act like it's no big deal. Like that "baby grand piano" outfit , or the "buttered popcorn" costume complete with individually hand-sewn buttered kernels. And then you feel even more like crap for buying the Ashley Tisdale High School Musical costume from Oriental Trading.

Well, this year you can be the smug Mommy on the block. We've come up with five simple, yet totally original, Shakespeare-themed costumes for your kids, like this "Drowning Ophelia" ensemble. We guarantee that they'll make you look creative and really well read.

Go to our latest Chicken McShakespeare column at Errant Parent to see them!
