I had decided that I wasn’t going to sew ANYTHING for Halloween. I even had my sister bring a costume down from Canada a month ago for Wyatt so that I didn’t have anything to plan or worry about. Hmm, well you can see how well that idea went.
I ended up making a cavewoman costume for myself, which was super simple, and I’m sure I’ll wear it every Halloween for the next 25 years. After all, I have to carry on my cavewoman tradition, right (remember this post)? Ya, I’m not really a person that needs variety in my life. I could eat the same meals everyday for a month and be happy. The best part is that the costume was SO comfortable. I got out the ol’ permanent marker and voila, there goes my front tooth! I won one of the prizes for funniest costume at our church Halloween party. I don’t know that that’s a compliment, but I’ll pretend it is.
Joel is obviously a hockey player (AKA last minute costume decision when I told him he had to dress up), and Weston wore the zebra costume that Wyatt wore the last two years. I guess we’ve gotten good use out of it!
Remember the cape that my sister Angie made for Wyatt and all the little nephews in my family? Well thanks to the idea of my SIL Angie and another sister Ada (I know, there’s a lot of sisters going on in this post… I have 3 sisters and 5 SILs and they’re all pretty awesome so I can’t help talking about them), there were a lot of superhero’s in my family this Halloween.
Please quit staring at the crooked lines on the mask. Seriously. Hehe, as you can see, the mask was basically thrown together and I decided we’d take it however it turned out. For one night, it was perfect :).
The next night it was raining like crazy before trick or treating, and Wyatt said he wanted to be a skunk and a superhero, so I decided, why not? I thought he looked cute, and definitely original :).
Okay, here’s what I’ve really been wanting to show you, Ada and Angie’s families, all dressed up as superheros.
Howie and Scarlett…
Can you believe that Angie is 33 weeks pregnant? I’m pretty sure my brother would kill me if he saw this picture. Nice tights, Andy!
Can you believe Ada even made all the boots? She’s kind of an over-achiever, don’t you think? And I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have even thought to put rhinestones on the masks like Angie did.
I hope you all had a fun Halloween! Oh, and make sure to enter your knock-offs in the Copycat Challenge, you can enter anything you’ve made after August 1, 2010!
