This year, as usual, I told my kids that I would not buy them Halloween costumes. It had to be something we already had or I would make it. (I'm embarrassed by the picture but this was the only chance to get them to stand still and the sun wouldn't cooperate).
I think Nathaniel was my favorite costume. He dressed up as Addison. He used the masks we made a few years ago, and wore all of Addison's clothes- admittedly, with a quick glance at the photo, you may actually mistake him for Addison.
Addison got a yoda costume for Christmas last year, so that was his choice.
Owen wanted to be a knight, a glorious silver, shiny knight, unfortunately, I just made him the chest piece and you can't use swords or shields at school. He didn't mind not being all silver once I caved and bought the sword. He forgot his black head covering at school, so his costume looks a little blah in the photo, but he has a sword so it's all good!
Hazel was a princess. I was literally sewing her costume until five minutes before this photo. The arm gauntlets still need the upper elastic, but she swore it was fine.
Maeve was a princess, the fabric for the body of her dress is still on the table waiting to be sewn, so she just wore the pettiskirt I made. I love love love the pettiskirts. I will post more about them later in the week when I get proper photos.
How was your Halloween?
More on this dress later in the week too:
