Our “Fin’tastic Ocean Jamboree” costumes were pretty epic, if I do say so myself. Olivia and I decided that our standard for costume day was “go big or go home.” And thus, our rendition of Spongebob Squarepant’s Barnacle Boy and Mermaid Man came to life. To create our costumes, Olivia cut out her seashells and belt from construction paper and had me paint a starfish on her nose. As for me, I borrowed a spare dishtowel from the youth center, painted on a mask, and quickly whipped together an origami paper hat. Together, we became the dynamic duo, fighting off burn-out and always saving the day at Camp Adventure.
