Halloween Costumes

Lets share our cute kiddos in their costumes!

Joshua was supposed to be a dragon, I ordered a 2T/4T and it was way too small more like 18 month size so I sent it back and ordered a 4/6 and it was way too big. So we made him a scarecrow costume! He wore it to preschool last week and everyone oohed and ahhed over how cute he was. We went out TorTing tonight and he did great!

Well I do have to say the scarecrow outfit was ADORABLE. I can't believe how big he is getting. We don't do halloween so no pictures to post. But Joshua was AWESOME.

My cupcake and baker! The girls had fun trick-or-treating around the neighborhood with their friend Brielle. Now we are enjoying the fabulous candy they collected!

Oh, and the girls were very proud of their Princess Jasmine pumpkin my husband carved. It was a hit with nearly everyone that came to our house.

Oh my how adorable. Way too cute. How did you do the cupcake costume? You DH has some mad carving skills. I can see why it was such a bit hit.

The bottom of the cupcake is an upside down lamp shade that I got from a consignment shop for $2. My husband simply cut the metal out of it so she could slip into it. I hot glued some elastic straps in a criss-cross fashion so she could wear the lampshade like overalls. I can't sew to save my life so I just bought some pretty pink fabric from WalMart, wrapped it around her, and safety pinned it to the lampshade. The cherry is a Styrofoam ball that I spray painted red and stuck a brown pipe cleaner in, then hot glued it to a white headband we already had. Very simple and inexpensive costume! Someone that sews could probably do a much better job.

That is awesome. I can't sew either, but you did an awesome job with what you could do. Very very creative.
