Today’s the big day! I wanted to pop in and wish you all a very happy and safe Halloween. Here’s our costumes this year…well, I guess I should say the kid’s costumes. Kyle and I aren’t much into the whole costume thing the older we get. We did however dress up this week for a Murder Mystery party we went to on Monday Night, which was so fun! I shared pics over on Instagram if you’d like to see.
As of last week, both of my kids had not yet decided on their costumes – can you say last minute?! Yikes! So I’ve been scrambling.
Avery this year…wanted to be scarecrow –
The makeup is my favorite part.
I searched high and low for overalls. Even with talk that overalls are coming back in style, they were hard to come by. I eventually found a 3T little girls overall dress with Disney Princesses on it at the thrift store and I had my lady (the lady who sews stuff for us) add another denim skirt to it to make it longer. Then we added patches to hide the princesses and another patch on the behind.
The plaid fabric around her neck and for the patches are from a pair of boxer shorts.
It all came together great for a last-minute-throw-it-together kind of costume.
As for little Aiden, he wanted to be a doctor. A pretty dashing little doctor, I must say. “The Doctor is in.”
His costume came together great too, thanks to my gal who sews. Gosh I need to learn to sew.
For his costume, I found adult sized scrubs and a white coat, and she fixed them to fit him. The little head mirror is a pocket mirror hot glued onto black stretchy elastic.
It adds a nice touch, don’tcha think? 😉
He looked so cute at our church party last night next to his little Frankenstein friend.
Because I love looking back, here’s all of Aiden’s costumes through the years:
