Happy Halloween

As you can see I had big goals this year for Halloween. Ollie and Harper wanted to be Finn and Jake from Adventure time. Being that it is a newer show, I could not buy their costume. Luckily I only had to make Harper's cuz my very talented friend Abi made Ollie's, thanks lady! And then I had the silly idea of Black Swan for Davy. I have to admit it was partly because I already had a black ballerina outfit, so I thought cheap and easy. But I really did not think that one through as you will see.
Max being more mature, needed a scary/Ironic outfit like a zombie sock monkey.

My cannon is in the shop, so only Iphone pics this halloweeen, kind of a bummer.
So now on to Davy.......what was I thinking?!! I literally had eyeliner, lipstick and a fake bun in my hands to put on my 19 month old baby. Alyssa was all ready to hold her down and I realized what the hay am I doing? This is borderline child abuse. So I bagged the idea and she was just a scrappy black ballerina.

This is what I was going for

And this is what she ended up looking like
What she ended up looking like was a hot mess. This little girl won't even leave a clip in her hair, so why would I think she would wear a crown? Oh well, I loved my lil scrapper anyway.


How was your halloween? I would love to hear what you or your little ones were.

My husband was Muno, and the rest of his team at work were other YO Gabba Gabba characters. They looked AWESOME!

I love all the kids costumes.....the doctored up photo of Davy as Black Swan is great. Hope you had fun! We sat out front with a bon fire, and handed out candy. It was fun!

lol I love Max's costume... super fun! As for Davy's... I think it totally suits her not to be all glammed up... she's super adorable without it - totally like a rebel black swan! As she gets older, you will be trying to keep her out of your eyeliner and lipstick lol

We did Skeleton and Ariel... NEVER AGAIN will I be making a mermaid costume... ever!

LOL! I was thinking, as I was looking at Davy's picture, Wow... how did she get Davy to wear that eye stuff? Then I kept reading... HA! I love how you photoshopped it in! And I love her black swan dress. So cute! And the Zombie Sock monkey... I would have never thought of that one. It was very... cute/scary/and gruesome all at the same time. Good choice! My kids were (in order of ages 12, 10, 5, 3, and almost 1 yrs. old.) a Pirate, Indiana Jones/Bumble-Bee Transformers guy, Rapuzel/Tinkerbell, a Dalmation dog, and a cute little *very pink and very soft* kitty cat. {The slashes are because at different trunk or treats, or on Halloween night, said child decided to change his/her costume to something else.} Go figure! All in all, it was a fun 3 nights of trick or treating!

Aw yeah! Those costumes rock! I am so glad Ollie liked it, and Harper looked adorable too. He can keep the costume, he will probably have more fun with it than I will :)
