A few years ago, I began making the kids' costumes. I had a problem with anything I found in the store. Several problems, actually. The first was that they were all so expensive for a single night out. The second was that the costumes were so cheaply made. And the third issue I had was that as my girls got bigger, their only options seemed to be pornographic characters-- slutty witch, sluttier maid, slut this , and slut that. I had issues, I tell you.
So I did some research and came up with a few ideas. These are costumes from 2010. I guess we've gone a few years in between.
And this year's pictures of the kids. We obviously reused the pizza costume. Sissy was a Chia head on an end table and Baby was a tea party.
And now, I have to include this today.
Oh yes, I did.
Unfortunately, Mr Farmer didn't get any close-ups. I had a gob of lipstick on my front teeth and my make-up was horrendous. Funny thing was, we wore these to a Halloween alternative at our church. Oh yes, I did. And no one recognized me. Apparently wearing glasses is a good enough disguise to fool people from Missouri. (just kidding all those of you from MO♥)
We would have had a sweep of the prizes, but they wanted to include others so we took two out of three of the prizes. It was a fun night. It was a blast having kids come up to me and bringing their friends to show them my backside and giggling as they walked away. I suppose it happens on a regular basis, but this time I wanted them to laugh at it.
