Trick or Treat!!

 The kids had a blast trick or treating.  They were exhausted afterward, and Ian was starving!  He kept saying, "Mom, please!  We really need to find a resturant."  Ian was Wall-e, Sophie was Tinkerbell, and Breyden was a ghost pirate. 




The little lady bug was the first costume I ever made. 

I made this costume for my cousin's little boy Brock.  His daddy is overseas right now.  Its made from some of his daddy's old camis.









I had to make Sophie's costume twice because I some how made it 4" to short the first time!  Apparently, I wasn't paying very close attention when I cut.





This is him "going in his box"...he means shutting down like Wall-e does at night...lol!

Ian's costume was made entirely from scratch.  I even made the Wall-E.  I had planned on buying it, but they are not very cute and really expensive.  So I started looking for a tutorial, and I found a few made from boxes that had been painted, but I'm not really into painting and I couldn't see spending all that time painting something that would get crushed and dirty and I would end up having to throw it away, so then I decided to make just make a slip cover for a box that way I can throw it in the washer and if the box gets crushed I can just get another one.


Ian loved it!  And it was a big hit with all the other kids too!  Everytime Ian would take it off all the kids would have to take a turn with it!





I really enjoyed making these costumes.  Especially the wall-e one because its so different from what I usually do.

All of your costumes are wonderful and the kids look so cute. It's fun to see them happy and excited on Halloween. Wall-E is great! Way to get into character. Thanks for visiting my site and for the compliments.

I love that green color that Tinkerbell is wearing. All the kids look adorable and you did an excellent job on the ladybug costume, too!
