These are my ruminations on life, design, and the pursuit of happiness…

Halloween is in the air!

We are finally having some cooler weather, and with the month of October upon us, I have halloween on the brain. I have made my kids costumes, not every year, but definately more often than I’ve bought them. With that in mind I thought I would share these photos of last years costumes.

Sadie came up with the idea after playing with her Playmobil toys: she put a cape from one of the princes onto the deer from another set, and “SuperDeer” was born.

Every Super Hero of course need a Sidekick, and Theo chose “SuperRabbit”.
I don’t think I’ll be able to top these costumes this year, as Sadie has decided she wants to be “Raven” from “Teen Titans” for halloween.
But she’ll always be my SuperDeer!

    Oh how I love homemade costumes! The store variety just don’t compare. I’ve made the kids every year so far. I wonder when that will change?
    For James’ first Halloween he was Elvis. He was 6 months old, had an awesome pompador and chubby cheeks. A white jumpsuit trimmed in gold made him the perfect fat Elvis.
    Here is a link to costumes 2 years ago–Batman and Robin.
    This year James wants to be a scuba diver, WIlliam a sea lion and they want Lilly to be a pink octopus. It should be fun.
    Oh, and I think it says a lot about kids who come up with their own ideas for costumes and wear them amidst all the others. Your kids are great!
