My mom showed me on the first one, and then I made the other two. For a first time costume sewer I think I did okay.
I think I have a pretty fantastic husband willing to dress up as a bear for me.
We found this cute Dragon Costume at Old Navy so we went as a dragon, a knight in shining armor and a princess.
Again Old Navy for the win, we found the zebra costume and Baby Fox pretty much fell in love with it the minute he saw it. So we went with it. Mini Fox was only 7 weeks old and Old Navy had a cute little Monkey jacket, so we bought that and Mr. took one for the team and wore the bear costume again! I decided to go as a Park Ranger trying to tame her animals....hey that's the shirt I never thought I would wear again....
We let Baby Fox lead the way and he wanted to be Spiderman, so we went with it, and made Mini Fox Wonder Woman and Mr. and I were the bad guys. I actually tailored my own costume. I had to buy a men's one size fits all, and Mr. and I wanted the same stripes, so I seamed ripped the sleeves off, cut down the shoulder size and then sewed the sleeves back on. I was pretty proud of myself.
Baby Fox wanted to be Batman, so we convinced Mini Fox that she wanted to be Bat Girl...power of suggestion people...it's amazing what you can get accomplished. Then Mr. was The Joker and I was Robin...and can I just say that I was 5 days post ankle surgery and hurting, yep I walked around on crutches and joked around with everyone that Batman got to me. I strategically hide behind Baby Fox so you couldn't see my hurt foot.
Can't see my foot, but you can see the crutches, by the end of the night I was dying...so I rode in the kids wagon...good thing I'm short and could sort of fit...lol.
Of course we haven't worn our costumes yet, but here's a sneak peak.
Epic fights happened in our kitchen this weekend, can only imagine what's going to happen tonight, as the other two familes we're going Trick Or Treating with will be in Star Wars costumes as well, so excited to get a group picture.
Do you do family theme? Or what are you guys going to be for Halloween?
