Being John Mal, Harry Potter


So this is the time of year where I begin planning what is going to happen for Halloween. I try to come up with a theme that will work for both the boys. The years that I have been busy, I just bought the costumes and ignored the themes, but this year I would like something cool. I usually try to choose something that isn't too scary and quite clever. In the past Tweedle D was Steve from Blues clues and Tweedle E was Blue. Then there was one year Tweedle E wanted to be Robin Hood so Tweedle D was Little John and I was Maid Marian. This year my boys want Quidditch Robes but they both want to be Harry Potter. This doesn't work for me. I've tried to convince them to be from different houses with little progress and they argue because there aren't two Harry Potters, there can only be one. So if you have any ideas on how to reason with my children or other themes that would be great. Thanks

can't one be Ron? I'm just saying. ;-) If one were blonde they could be malfoy, my son could totally be malfoy!

My kids want to be the characters from Eragon. Elizabeth wants to be Saphira. How am I going to make a blue sparkly dragon costume?

They actually could both be Harry Potter because in the 3rd movie Harry time travels and there is a period where there are actually 2 Harry Potters.
