Halloween Costumes

As every year, I got all super excited about being able to make Halloween costumes for my kids. My son's costume ended up being too top heavy, so it didn't stay upright for a good photo. After I took pictures, I held it up by the chin and walked next to him for the night. He was a trooper and held his sister's candy bag.

My daughter's costume made people stare, and I kept hearing, "OMG did you see that girl??" It's definitely one I'm very proud of.

And because I don't have a good picture of the dinosaur on the boy, here's what it looked like before I got it strapped up:

A friend of mine asked me to write up a guest spot for her blog. Once she posts it, I'll be back over here to add a link to this entry for those of you who are interested in the DIY.

My goodness, these are amazing! They're both very clever, and so beautifully made! For a moment I really fell for the dress costume, that's ever so well done!

My daughter won the contest at school with the same sort of "head on a plate" costume. Well, actually she did two different costumes of the same sort: a woman holding her own head in her hands as one (which killed her neck by the end), and a head on a platter on a completely set holiday table.

Oh....Halloween :D

This is the first time my daughter has gone the traditional scary route for Halloween. I must say, I don't want to go back to fluffy dresses or cutesy stuff ever again!

Those are very good! I like that they both have limbs that don't belong to the kids but look like they do. Amazing. Nice work!

So creative and awesome.

I cannot show these to my kids because they will want me to do these next year. Great job!

I <3 your daughter's costume. They are both very imaginative, but hers reminds me of those creepy porcelain figurines by Jessica Harrison.

Thanks, everyone!

I had a great time making my daughter's costume. On the other hand, I wanted to set that blasted dinosaur on fire before it was even done! lol It made my son happy though, and that's all I could ask for in the long run.
