So as I have mentioned over the last few days I want to share my Halloween ideas from this year and from past years and I am going to share them right up until Monday to give any stragglers a few ideas!
I love dressing up for Halloween!
Its so much fun pretending and wearing a fun costume!
(I'm not one for the scary costumes)
So here are a few of the costumes that we have done over the last few years!
Delaney's First Halloween she had two costumes...
We had this store bought banana costume, I got it the previous year for $2 on clearance! It was a bit too small though so she wore it for the day and for the evening...
I turned her into Winnie the pooh....
I just put her into a pair of Yellow Sleepers, yellow scratch mitts, a Winnie the Pooh hat and I cut down a red diaper shirt. Super easy and I had it all on hand!
and here we are with her! You can't really see in this picture but I was a lady bug, I made my costume by sewing a red t-shirt in a circle, adding red ribbon straps, and spots from a black t-shirt. I did it in one hour or so on my sewing machine, and Robyn was the GRILL SERGEANT! He picked up this t-shirt at wal-mart I think and wore camouflage pants, he then clipped BBQ tools like a spatula and a pair of thongs to his belt.
For Delaney's second Halloween I had just started working a new job and didn't have the time to make a costume (I know it's no excuse...)
But she was the cutest monkey I ever saw! (there are no pictures of us on Halloween because we didn't really dress up... I wore a red sweater and devil ears... it was sad!)
Last year was another store bought costume for Delaney
She was Minnie Mouse and she LOVED it!
Daddy dressed as a biker, Mohawk and all... his costume was jeans, a t-shirt from the Sturgis motorcycle show and a bandana (that he didn't wear...) and I was a sheriff, Jeans a black shirt, and a sheriff star which was also part of my night time costume for a party I help Best Friend throw...
Hubby was a Jail bird and I was a cop!
I semi-made my costume...
I took an old powder blue suit owned by my step-dad (from back when powder blue suits were cool) and adjusted the vest to fit (sadly the pants fit like a glove... ) I made some other changes fun when I altered it to! I sewed a collar and darts in the front so that it had a fitted look.
What are you dressing as this year? Do you have a favorite costume from a past year? Share them in the comments!
