In recent years, we like to choose characters that our kids recognize. They even like watching movies and then telling us what they think we should be. The kids are so into it that they tell us as early as November 1st what they want us to be the next year.
Here are some of our past costumes that I hope will add some inspiration to your costume making...
|"Lucy & Ricky" (My husband is Cuban)|
|"Shrek & Fiona"|
I found red dry fit shirts, black running shorts, black gloves & red tights at Target. (Yes, my husband the good sport wore tights) I used my kids' yellow karate belts for our belts. I got sticky felt from JoAnn's Fabrics and created the symbols for our shirts and our masks.
|"MegaMind & Minion"|

I was nervous that no one would get it...but surprisingly, people stopped us and knew exactly who we were.
I hope we can pull off the idea for this year....we're cutting it close though! Can't wait to share it with you!!
