DD wanted to be Barbie Thumbelina. She is very adamant in her clothing choices so I didn't fight it.
I'd love to see what you came up with. DS has already insisted he's going to be sonic next year.

Both handmade by me - the catipillar has the face on the red hat. front

I made the corn first, that was his choice, but it is SOOO hot (we live in florida!), so I made the second one for day time events. He has been wearing both b/c we have been doing tones of halloween activities. And both have gone through the wash with no issues
Those are awesome!

DS (6yo) is going to be Harry Potter. In my annual moment of Halloween insanity, I refused to pay $30 for a super cheap robe and insisted "I can make that for less!" And to be honest, the fabric was only about $10 or $15, but for some reason, when I'm making the costume I go insane and insist on going the extra mile (or ten!), so he's getting a custom altered Gryffindor sweater, and hand made wand and I've probably spent far more than I would have if I had just bought the stupid robe. Plus, he looks so cute! I'll try to post pics soon, I'm waiting for the paint to dry on his wand.
DD (4yo) is going to be a witch (non HP related). She picked the tackiest bright purple crushed velvet for her dress, so she looks like a crazy disco witch!
I also made a black robe to wear over the dress. I just hope it's not too cold. They have some room under the costumes, but if they need winter coats we might be in trouble!
