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.


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.

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!
