what we wore last year

I'm starting to think about and work on our Halloween Costumes.  I thought I would repost last years costumes.

My oldest girl asked to be a clown. 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.

Clown #3
My oldest ended up being sick with Strep last year. Thankfully she was 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, yet
he wanted to pose like a dead skeleton.

The clown costumes are adorable! I love how the older the girl, the more elaborate the face paint. Oh,and your skeleton total rocks! I had to make one for my younger son when he was 3. He wanted it to reflect his previously broken bones. I did the sweats, like you, but I drew and cut all the bones out of felt, then sewed them on. He also wanted it to be front and back! I wish I would have known what heat and bond was back then!!!
