Halloween Costumes

We spent a bit of time yesterday working on finishing touches for costumes.(counting it as art of course.) I had purchased a renaissance costume for $1 at a garage sale during the summer. It just needed jewelry and a hat. We looked up what a hat should look like (not sure why they had those weird fabric strips on the sides in renaissance days but...) The teen made the hat using the sewing machine, probably the only purple fabric I own and some gold ribbon. I think it's cute! I worked on a necklace, and the little one made a ring to match.

The teen's costume is harder to explain. lol She was deciding between going as a green M&M or going as something she calls a 'Raver'. The dictionary defines it as 'a participant in a rave dancing party.' I remember DH attending a Rave party down in Hollywood when I was 7 months pregnant with the teen. He went with a military buddy and I think I stayed up all night worrying about them being down in Hollywood. Wondering what trouble they might get into! lol So it must be her father's fault that she is now a 'raver'.

P.S. I don't know what is up with the teen's pose. She's a dork. lol I'll take more pics tonight when its spooky and dark out and the teen has her glowsticks on.

S is ADORABLE--Blake is going as Charlie Brown in the many-eye-holed sheet!

Alas, your eldest girl child hearkens memories of myself wearing a black trash bag, black elbow length gloves, and WAY too much make-up . . .
