Costume Central


So someone let me know the other day that it is October. WHAT??? That can't be. I mean wasn't it just the end of August? Who was the punk who skipped September? I don't appreciate that.

Now that I have come to terms with the fact that it is indeed already October, I have to come to the realization that it is that time of year again.

Costume time. Once again it is time for sewing costumes. Every year it seems to get more and more daunting...oh wait, I keep getting more kids to sew for...not to mention the themes...always a theme.

For those of you who know me well, you know that I normally whip my costumes out just a few days weeks before Halloween. This year a wrench was thrown into my plans...I found out last week that our church Halloween party is the 18th...THE 18TH! Ahhhh!

Whew...calm down.

Our costume theme this year has been on the agenda since the end of last Halloween. Knowing the theme for so long, you would think that I would have busted something out sooner. Hahahahahahaha....sigh...haha...

Did the fabric above give our theme away?

How about this picture?


Or this one?


I just have to say that almost everything else has gone to pot while putting these puppies together. See for yourselves...

we have to eat 


the Little Men entertain themselves 


Littlest doesn't really get the concept of making a costume...
Oh and he is the one who keeps taking his pants off.

I am excited about getting these SUPER costumes done ahead of schedule. Fingers crossed anyway. I am not sure anything will top my exhilaration over last years costumes...









...but I am going to try.

What are your costume plans this year?

Go YOU!! Seriously. I was just thinking this week "I need to get working on costumes! This month is going to disappear just like last month."

Your costumes last year were AMAZING. Seriously. I had forgotten. The details. I am sure this year will be so fun. I love that it is a super hero theme. I think I need to start making a theme. It would make it a little easier on me I think.

Seriously... I'm still trying to pick my jaw up off the floor. Still. Do you use patterns for any of these? What is the material you're using? I totally have to attempt super hero costumes for my boys after seeing this... Help! Hahah :)

And i have no words for your buzz, woody & alien...

Britt!

You are just the sweetest. No patterns, except for old clothes.

Glad you liked the Toy Story Trio too...buzz has been my favorite so far.

Thanks so much for this. Your costumes are amazing. I am totally in debt to you for your ideas and great photos which allowed me to make Buzz wings and gloves for my daughter's costume this year. Thank you, thank you!!
