Halloween costume for a blue-haired 8 year old

My 8 year old son cannot decide what he wants to be for Halloween. He has turquoise blue hair, which doesn't have to be part of his costume, but I mean, if you're going to have blue hair, you may as well make the most of it at Halloween, eh? [more inside]

My son ruins shoes. What are the most ruin-resistant high-tops for him?

My 8 year old son has some foot issues...his feet/ankles pronate inward. Between his OT and his podiatrist, we've been told to get him anti-pronation inserts and high top sneakers for ankle support. The inserts were easy to get...the high tops are not as simple. We're looking for recommendations! [more inside]

Remove large grease stain from wool coat?

An expensive wool overcoat got pretty much soaked in *used* fry oil several months ago. Long story. I know it would have been easier to resolve when it happened, but I procrastinated as the weather was warming up and forgot about it. Now I'm regretting that. Can it be saved? I'd ask a dry cleaner, but I'm afraid they'll just suggest, in bad faith, an expensive cleaning.

Help me combat redness on my face

Over the last 6 to 8 months, I've been taking better care of my skin, and the efforts (and, sigh, money) are paying off with fewer blemishes and better texture. The one thing that hasn't been affected, though, is uneven skin tone -- specifically, redness. What can I try next to help even out the redness? More details about my specific skincare routine below the fold. [more inside]

My son (12, going on 13 in a month) rides his bike to/from school in the PNW. This means wind, rain, wet, damp, etc. He prefers to wear jeans, but doesn't like how long they take to dry, so I'm hoping for some good suggestions from the hive.mind. [more inside]

Odd Man Out Tightens the Belt

I am in need of a new belt, and in possession of a waistline an odd number of inches in diameter. As men's belts typically only come in even sizes, I can't find one that buckles properly at the third hole, and my Google skills have been unable to dig up a satisfactory answer to this question: A belt one inch too long or one inch too short -- which will make me look less of a schlub?
