Mermaid Costumes and a Cyclops Pumpkin Costume for Good Measure


You didn't think I'd let a Halloween go by without making a costume or two - or three did you?

OK, so I haven't been so good at sharing my progress on the blog lately.  I don't know what it up with me, but I am having a hard time getting into the blogging thing lately.  I've been sharing the progress all along on the Tawny Bee Fanpage though.

Anywho...

Lane decided that this year she wanted to be a mermaid.

Gah!

Really?

Mermaid?

What to do?

Hmmm... I thought about it for a long time and realized that anything I came up with would be impossible to walk in.

What all else fails, go to the Fabric store and see if they have a pattern.

And they did!

(Simplicity 4043 in case you wanted to know.)

So I made matching mommy/daughter mermaid costumes.

 Logan wanted to be a pumpkin.  Much easier.

I just took the bee costume pattern from when he was two and enlarged it (and turned it orange of course!)

I even let Logan design his own Jack-o-Lantern face.


 Yes, we have a cyclops pumpkin.  Woo!

Here are some more pictures from Halloween.







Ninja mermaid!  Lane kept striking a ninja pose when I tried to snap a pic or two of her.  So we had a ninja mermaid and a cyclops pumpkin for the evening.


Mermaid in socks.  It's the latest thing hehehe


Lane doing her best "child of the corn" look.  Yipe!



This is when I caught Terry trying to get a shot of my cleavage.


He thought he'd trade a cleavage shot for a bum shot and posed very willingly for one too.  Goof!


I hope you all had a safe and awesome Halloween!
