In one of many Mom Fails I’ve committed over the last few (insert time measurement of choice), I forgot to bring the camera along on Halloween. We were Trick-or-Treating in my parents’ neighborhood and couldn’t just run home to get it, so that meant I didn’t get any good costume pictures of the kids.
Today I “made” them put their costumes back on so we could snap a few pictures.
Jacinta, put your dress down!
We have Jacinta as a pirate, Ariadne as a ladybug and Veronica as a Jedi.
The ladybug has been a baby tradition in our house. All the girls have worn it, and it continues to be adorable.
Jacinta was given the choice of lion (which Veronica wore when she was two) or pirate (which we found last year at Goodwill). She chose pirate.
I made this robe for Veronica, who had her heart set on being a Jedi. I originally intended to make her a tunic and pants as well, but that plan did not come to fruition.
On Halloween she was a good Jedi with a blue light saber, but today she decided to flirt with the dark side.
Ariadne didn’t bring a treat bag along, but Veronica and Jacinta had these. I used this tutorial (with some adjustments) to make them out of an old circle tablecloth that I bought by accident a couple years ago. They would have been easy and quick to make if my sewing machine hadn’t been acting up that day. It’s really my sewing machine’s fault that I forgot the camera on Halloween – I was so flustered when I was finally finished, and it was time to run out the door.
Hope everyone had a fun Halloween!
