My 11-year-old son's favorite food is sushi and well, he wanted to be a sushi! All homemade and everything is recycled materials -excpet for the unseen roll of duck tape I sent DH out for the night before! He had drumsticks (chopsticks for his prop, but wasn't holding them for the pic) "No, Mom, I just want to go trick or treating now!"
Hello, Our family dressed as Boo berry (8 yr old daughter), Count Chocula (dad), and Frankenberry (mom). We made all 3 and spent less than $10.00, Paper mache and re-used materia makes up most of the costumes. We had a blast making them and wearing them. They are a bit labor intensive but anyone could do it.
DH was the evil wizard, who changed DS (our prince) into the Frog Prince.
DD was the Frog Princess (can you see her froggie boots?)
And Mama was the froggie's lily pad!
Here's a better photo of the kids:
Our sweetest heart tends to be quite the stinky boy- yet adored he is! I have never sewed before and was unfamiliar with all of the sewing terms. When I opened the skunk pattern, I knew I was in for it! He was a young trooper as I fastened that "foreign object" around his head! He kept trying to look left and right to figure out what on earth mama was doing to his head :-)
Tackling a skunk costume as a first time sewing sure was interesting- my sweetie excitedly sniffling and babbling from the floor as I opened the pattern and googled definitions to all the sewing terms online. He sure was a good sport; confused as he was, looking left and right, and questioning what foreign object mama was strapping to his curly little head. All the comotion did not cause him to cease to drop a few bombs for us. What gifts :-)
