The Costume Post

Wicked Witch of the West
I think she mostly wanted to be this particular witch so she could have a green face. Too bad the lame make-up we got ended up being more of a baby poop green and really gooey the whole time. Oh well, she was still thrilled.She already tells me she wants to be a skeleton next year... I'll have to get on that:).

Guitar Boy
Or so he called it. Man, did we nail this one when we decided to go with a 80's hair band costume. SO dude... He's really feeling the music

And I got to recycle Elyette's corpse bride leggings, so the only thing I made for him was the metallic shirt.

SpiderHer name (Charlotte) decided her costume for me. This one probably took the most time but TOTALLY worth it and it turned out! I hope it washes well because she spit up all over it MANY times... of course. Thats what she does, so I guess I should say she was Charlotte the Barfing Spider.
So then can you guess what I am?
In case its been a while since you've read the book, let me help: Charlotte's Web.

The hair and side burns he's always trying to get away with just made this a natural choice. Didn't take much to shape his hair (too bad we didn't get a better pic of it). For a more "snug" fit he wore my T-shirt and jeans. Perhaps I should be embarrassed that my husband can fit into my clothes...meh... he looked good ;). And I thought his spoons were a nice touch. Much more kid-friendly than blades.

Oh and of course our "Haunted Honda" for the Trunk-or-Treat:
Good way to showcase our Creepy Portraits:

Happy Halloween!

Why thank you :). Elyette's is totally my favorite! Now I just need to find some sweet vintage frames to put them in for Halloween decor for years to come.
