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.
Lane decided that this year she wanted to be a 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.
I hope you all had a safe and awesome Halloween!
