|I made her put on a white tee so she'd be less naked.|
the previous year only because I'd run out of time to make the Snow White costume for which I'd purchased fabric, and we had Cinderella leftover from Blue Eyes's previous Halloween costume. I gently directed her toward Snow White and she jumped on that. Pink Blur was so excited to be her favorite Disney princess. I was so excited that the fabric I'd purchased the year before had enough yardage to make a costume to fit her. Hooray for free! Free for this year, anyway. I bought Snow White dress up shoes online for the costume. The only size listed was 3 yrs + and I figured it would be okay if they were a touch too big. Nope. They were HUGE on Blue Eyes and her feet are bigger than the average 5 year old. Maybe I'll have to make another one of these dresses in a few years. Or not.

Hubs is a Star Wars geek and went as Darth Maul. He was scheduled for a raise so he went ahead and purchased his costume. He also made most of the horns for the costume by carving them out of wood. It was pretty awesome. My contribution to his costume was the make up. Easy cheesy, right? Yeah. I think it took over an hour and a half. I was impressed with how long it lasted. I'm also impressed that the Hubs left his bald cap on for over 12 hours.
|After the neighborhood Trunk or Treat the kids were done.|
I felt like I deserved something new after all the work I was doing for everyone else's costumes so I decided that if I didn't get a new costume that I should have elf ears. I was so excited to open up my brand new pair of elf ears. I was less excited when my "pair" of ear tips were both for left ears. I was so tired by that point in the day that I almost cried right then. Instead I bucked up, put on one ear, and draped my hair over the other ear. They were non-refundable so I got half my money's worth. Or something. Next year, I get a new costume.
Here's to a calmer Halloween next year!
