This year I am doing the skeleton with baby from mamabargins for work (preschool teacher). DH and I are going as Juno and Bleeker to an adult party.

It seems we're going to have an MDC March 2012 official costume! I got fabric paint and freezer paper....gonna attempt to stencil the skeleton myself. Crossing my fingers I don't mess it up!

We made the forum homepage with this thread, too. DH wants to order me a shirt to be romantic or something. winky.gif That money is coming from the same place either way, but I'll let him. I'm going to add a little blue bow. I think we might go get him some Goodwill clothes this weekend and try the daddy version since DD will be at Disneyland with her Grandma and auntie.

Sigh. I am so frustrated. Amazon screwed up my order, sent it to the wrong address, sold out, and had to refund my order. (Honestly, first time that has happened with them, so not angry with that company.) I had to go to the mall to get maternity clothes, though, because all of the big box stores have dropped their maternity lines. I find a shirt, bring it home, wash it, and decide to get the transfer on.

It took FOREVER to separate the transfer! I sat at the ironing board with tweezers and tiny thread clippers for about a half hour, just trying to get the little pieces to stay on the clear sheet. I finally got that done, and positioned on the shirt. I had the iron turned down a little lower than they suggested, and it is a good iron, so I'm pretty sure of the actual temp. I set it on the transfer for about two seconds, went to wiggle it around like I normally do on transfers, and the danged thing had melted! In two seconds!

Now I'm left with a ruined transfer stuck to my shirt, and I have to try to figure out how to get the two sets off ribs and half vertebrae off so that I can salvage the shirt. I could paint it pretty easily, but paint won't match, so I need to get the transfer off if possible. I ended up in tears earlier because I felt like I wasted that money on what is now a ruined shirt. Damned hormones. greensad.gif

Due date crashing.  I always wanted to go as a pregnant nun and have The Hubby be a priest, but I'm worried about offending people.  hide.gif

Well, I was able to get the transfer off with tweezers. Since my craft projector is in storage, I laid what was left of the transfer on my laptop monitor, put watercolor paper on top, and traced. I was able to flip it over for the missing part so that it is even. I'm not sure if I'll use an exacto knife or sewing transfer paper to get it on my shirt...but I'll figure it out in the morning. I guess as a bonus, I don't have to make a stencil to make my husband a shirt.

I decided to go as a preggo rabbit for a bit of humor ;)

  We went to a party last weekend and the costume was a last minute idea, but cute.  Big rabbit ears, a tail and a white/grey outfit.  Oh, and looots of makeup!

I posted these in the craft section, but here is the final result. (Well, kind of final. I need to wash off some bits of paper once the paint is cured.)

And DH's:

The paper template lasted until the last shirt, when it got SOAKED by DD and DH sponge painting his shirt. DD is going as a cheetah for Halloween, but she wanted in on the action too.

Yours turned out so great!! I, on the other hand, am apparently colorblind. Started painting tonight and realized that not only is my paint light pink instead of white...but when it dries it becomes transparent with LOTS of glitter. Soooooooo we'll see tomorrow if it is adorable or awful. :)

Just realized as I was posting on the MDC FB page that I forgot to give the baby ribs! :) Oh well.

It is still cute, and I doubt most people would notice. smile.gif I like the glitter! I wanted to add glow in the dark paint on top of the white paint, but DH didn't come home with any, so I figured it wasn't meant to be. wink1.gif We wore ours downtown for that haunted Sutter's Fort tour, and the volunteers all liked my shirt. Only downside is that my uterus is seriously tilted to the right, so it makes the shirt look like it it twisted some to the left. Oops!

So, last night was a little hectic. We had company, and I couldn't put face paint on DD or take pictures without someone quite literally over my shoulder. Ack! I LOVE Halloween, and it is normally the one holiday where we don't have to deal with family. Except this time. So, no picture of my shirt yet, but I'll have DH get one after he's gotten over this cold. Here's what I could get of DD. She would only make a "sour milk" face, as she called it. wink1.gif She said the crummy face paint we ended up with was burning, so I ended up doing a quick job with mineral makeup, and she was happy with it.
