Halloween Costumes

This weekend we had our first Halloween Party for the kids.  I love it that we have the chance to wear our costume more then once thanks to Halloween Parties.

Of course,  the party is on the 20th and do I have my costumes ready?  No!  (check out my Facebook page to document my procrastination!!!)  I wait until the last possible moment to make them, then my son makes decides it needs alterations 20  minutes before the party starts.  It is all good!  We made them and he looked awesome.

  Here are 2 of our 3 kids Halloween Costumes this year.  There will be pictures of my oldest later

First, my favorite costume I have ever made. 

Shrimp Sushi

Cailyn this year is Shrimp Sushi.  Can you see it???  This was so much fun to make and I think she is cute enough to eat!!!! Of course, what is sushi without a little wasabi and pickled ginger?

Wasabi and Ginger

Then Wesley was a Vampire Bat!!! So scary!!!Vampire Bat

He told me over and over again he wanted his wings to stick straight out.  So I used a pool noodle to help me accomplish this task…DSC_5874

After he realized he couldn’t walk down the hall OR slide down the slide he changed his mind.  We removed the noodle and sewed elastic on the wings in three places so he could “FLY”

I don’t have a picture of him standing still but I do have one of him having the time of his life!!! Wings that fly

Just a little bit of Strictly Homemade this Halloween!!! I love all things homemade!
