When I was little, my mom made all of my costumes. A witch, a lion, and Pebbles from The Flintstones...anything I ever wanted.
Now that I'm a mom of boys, they want very specific costumes and I can't really make them to their distinct possibilities. My costume making skills are going to waste.
Luckily, my husband enjoys dressing up as much as I do. That's where my creative juices get to go on Halloween. Unluckily, he is the one with the ideas and he doesn't usually come up with anything until about a day before Halloween! That only gives me 24 hours to pull together a costume!
Here are some of our costumes from past Halloweens...
|Lucy and Ricky (2002)|
|Shrek and Fiona (2009)|
|Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl (2010)|
I take our personal clothes and mix it with some magic to create our new personas! Not to mention I always try to do something a little cruel to my husband....like wear make-up or tights! He's a good sport, though!
This year, we are going to be Megamind and Minion....can't wait! Pictures will follow soon!!
