3 Clowns and a Skeleton

My oldest girl asked to be a clown for Halloween. I was a little hesitant at first and even tried to talk her out of it. But, the more I thought about it over time I realized it was a fabulous idea. I had so much fun making her costume I decided to make all my girls clowns. I mostly used scraps and trim my mom and I had on hand. I had just as much fun making the hats as the dresses.

My little Lydia is sick in bed with the flu. Her picture will have to wait. Hopefully she'll be back to normal in time for trick-or-treating.

My son wanted to be a skeleton. I tried to talk him out of it as well, I'm a mean mom. He persisted, so this is what I did.

I used black sweats, white fabric and Heat n' Bond. I drew out all the bones cut them out and ironed them on. I was scared it would be hard, but turned out to be pretty simple.
I wanted him to paint his face white- he said that was too spooky.
He wanted to pose like a dead skeleton.
