Happy Halloween

I have just a quick post today to share our costumes.  But before I get started, if you haven’t already, be sure to leave a comment for the Hungry Jack giveaway— $175 Visa gift card plus Breakfast Celebration kit is such an awesome giveaway!

Our costumes this year are Make it Do, but still turned out fun.

Ben is a guy that survived “Messin’ with Sasquatch.”  Ben and I came up with the idea.  A good buddy of Ben’s dressed up too and his mom helped us pull all the ingredients together… like the plaid shirts, suspenders, and fake blood.   We made tee-shirt using Avery printable transfers… they read, “I Survived Messin with Sasquatch”  The picture is terrible, but you get the idea… they have to be to school before the sun rises!

He looks sooo grown up, I want to cry.  Gone are the days of Robin Hood, Knights, and Ranger’s Apprentices.

Lily and Emma’s school requires them to dress up as a historical character that they study in class.

Lily is Joan of Arc.  Luckily we were able to use Ben’s old knight costume, that I made several years ago.  I made the laurel wreath from leaves from my neighbor’s yard.

Emma’s costume was the only real sewing I had to do this year.  She is Athena.  The dress was modified and improvised from a pattern we had.  I used the cheapest fabrics I could find and the whole costume ended up less than $10, most of that for the trim.

Wishing you all a very spooky day!  Wish me luck in scoring some Butterfingers.
