I thought I might post a few pictures of some of the past creations...
But first I had to post the Halloween picture that started it all:
Now, not all of our kids' costumes have been homemade and not all of my brain cells are still intact after having all these kids. This being said, I have no idea where I might find all of our Halloween pictures. Here is just a sampling. Just smile and nod if you have seen them before on this blog or anywhere else.
My very first attempt at homemade. Sweet little Leo/Superman. Probably sad that I tried to comb his hair Superman style.
Oh my gosh. I don't even know what to say. This picture just cracks me up! Look at puffy little Big Bird/Jack on the left. Don't you just want to squeeze those cheeks? I have to say, Optimus Prime was one of the coolest we have created thus far. The signature semi-truck roof lights on his shoulders even lit up! Evan's skeleton costume glowed in the dark too.
We thought that our Ollie-gator should be just that for his first Halloween. Still bugs me that the pants were the wrong color.
Wow. You'd think of all of the Halloweens past, I would be able to come up with a few good pictures from the last one. Instead, these are grainy cell-phone pictures. I had to put a few of Bowser (that was a complex, but really fun costume to make) at different angles since Evan is nearly cut out of the group picture.
Taking this trip down memory lane and seeing all of these happy trick-or-treaters gets my creative juices flowing and makes me excited for this year's projects. It also makes me very tired.
Good night, don't let the bed bugs bite!
