That's funny!

AnnetteMarie, with four kids I think that's an awesome idea. So far I've spent $10 on a black sweatsuit, $6 on paint, and $6 on a chimney-hat for DS's woodstove costume. Times four would be . . . yikes!! Using stuff from around the house encourages creativity and saves money too. I think that's great.

They are adorable! That costume looks a little bit like Super Why from PBS. Very cute!

DD (8 months) is going as Holly Hobbie. It's big enough on her that she can wear warm clothes underneath it. I'm glad Halloween is on a Saturday this year. During the week, I work until almost 6. So, we can start early and be done before dark. Probably not going to many places, grandparents and such. She'll hate getting in and out of her car seat too many times.

He is such a decisive little fella. Once he makes up his mind, he makes up his mind.

Dd (8) is going to be a vampire. We even got her one of those little teeth kits before realizing she doesn't have canines atm.

Woops. Now we have to find her some other teeth.
My 2 yo ds is going to be Spiderman (one of many, I am sure!).

My 8 yo dd is going to be a vampire. Sounds like our kids have common interests! lol

DD is going to be Little Bo Peep. She had wanted to be Little Red Riding Hood and I started on that costume and then she changed her mind. And then she wanted to be Little Miss Muffet.

I think she has a think for the Littles. She's 27.5 months.

For our town's costume parade today DS was a teddy bear. Soooo cute- and a (FREE) hand-me-down costume to boot.

I also have a skunk costume I bought used for, like, $6 that is adorable. I think we'll wear that on Halloween itself. When we go trick-or-treating to, like, 2 houses.

Conversation with my 2.5yr old today:
"Mommy, what's that?"
"That's a gnome costume."
"I want to be a gnome for Halloween!"
"I thought you wanted to be poop."
"Ohhhh, yeah. I wanna be poop for Halloween!"

Guess I'm still making that domokun shirt and coil o'doodoo hat.

My youngest (27 months) is going to be a dalmatian. He saw the costume in Old Navy at the very beginning of September and couldn't leave the store without it. We've been "trying it on" almost every day since then. He's really excited about it.

DD (4) requested a Barbie cheerleader costume we saw online. She loves it, but honestly I'm not thrilled with it. It looks cheap to me -- definitely not my favorite of her costumes. While it's long-sleeved, the skirt is very short, and the top shows her tummy a bit, so I think she's going to be cold. I'm probably going to put a solid-colored long-sleeved shirt under it.

I found DS1 (8) a really awesome zombie rockstar costume and a scary-looking fake guitar and rock star wig (a la Kiss) to go with it. I think he's going to look amazing

My 4 year old is going to be a "blue stegosaurus with green and orange spots." Maybe next year I should not ask what he wants to be . Thankfully, I finished it today - not terribly professional, but he seems very happy with it.

Dylan, 11, will be a Samurai, Alex, 4, wanted to be Spiderman until he fell in love with a Power Ranger costume, Lindsay, 2, is a princess, Parker, 9 mo, might wear the banana costume I made for Lindsay when she was 6 months, and Matilda, 11 mo, will be a black cat to Erica's witch.

My 3 year old will be one of many Spidermans out there on Halloween. I wanted to do a family theme and have matching/complementing costumes but the Spidergirl/Spiderwoman costumes are all very skimpy and not family friendly, in my opinion. I guess I could possibly be MJ and my dh could be a villian of some sorts.

DD is a fairy this year. I made her a teal puffy tutu, shimmery floaty purple fairy wings with teal sequins swirling all over them, a sequins crown with silver leaves and a crazy silver and purple glitter ribbon star wand . She's in heaven! She gets to start wearing it tomorrow for our playgroup and I like that the tutu will be a dress up option for a loooong time!

I was worried about it being too cold this year but DS's costume seems fairly warm and he can wear fleece jammies underneath.

Cute! Maybe I'll go to Old Navy tomorrow because I'm really curious what a dalmatian costume looks like

My 22 month old DS is going to be a dragon. I had grand ideas of DH being a knight and me being a princess, but ran out of money/time/inspiration. So at least DS will be cute My mom bought his costume for us. Here is a picture. I'm taking him out in it every day this week because it seems like such a waste to have a costume so cute and him only wear it a few times

Well, IMO a Jawa would be the easiest

DS1, age 4.5, is going as Indiana Jones.
DS2, age 14 months, will be going as Short Round.

I will be having coordinating costumes as long as I can get away with it. heh

My DD is going to be a "winter fairy", provided I get her costume sewn in time!

I have my work cut out (or really, not even cut out yet...) for me!

We also decided to find costumes and inspiration from around the house this year. So far I've spent $0.00 on costumes and it feels so good! The boys were even at a Halloween party today and everyone loved them! Ds(6) chose to be a biker, he looks so cute with a leather fringe jacket, vest and do-rag. Ds(8) was transformed into a mad scientist with a over-sized white dress shirt, glasses, dish gloves, crazy gelled and sprayed hair and a potion bottle. My dd(28mos) is going to be a rag-doll. I've made her a big bow and sewn some patches onto a cute little apron along with a dress and fun little pants.

A Sparkly Pink Ballerina Tiger with Eyebrows

I asked Ela what she wanted to be for Halloween, expecting her to say; "Princess" or "Fairy" or "Ballerina" (She's really girly.) and I was quite plesantly surprised when she replied; "A Tiger!.... Pink, with Eyebrows!" Then she added; "A Sparkly Pink Tiger. A Sparkly Pink Ballerina Tiger with Eyebrows." She's 2 3/4. Don't ask me why the Eyebrows are so important.

The fabric I found is more Cheetah than Tiger, but I think it'll suffice. It is very pink. I've got my work cut out for me.

DS wanted to be Metal Sonic (the Hedgehog) which doesn't exist so Mommy had to put something together.

DD wanted to be Barbie Thumbelina. She is very adamant in her clothing choices so I didn't fight it.
