This is the most dressed up my kids have ever been all together.
They all knew what they wanted to be for months and never wavered.
I only had to make one costume. I made little Miss Robin's costume. I took a plain red tee from Hobby Lobby and ironed on the details which I made in a publisher program. The belt and mask is felt. Cape is some kind of no ravel polyester. The green skirt I made by cutting up a size large adult blank tee from Hobby Lobby and used the scraps to make her arm cuffs.
This bat girl. She's my 'but mom I don't dress up' girl. One extreme to the other don't ya think? She picked this costume from a catalog and insisted she would wear it. I wasn't real convinced, but when I saw it at Target I decided to give it a try with thoughts that it would likely be returned.
Nope. Wore it a ton. Every piece of it.
Ready to kick some villain booty!
This one, not so original. But all I had to buy was a Cubs jersey (which he will wear til he outgrows it). The pants, belt and socks he wore that morning in a baseball tournament.
He actually let me put eye-black on for the costumes sake--he's never worn it before.
Other costume fun we've had this year:
Scarecrow Maressa for her preschool fall party. I had colored her on a scarecrow nose, but she didn't like it and rubbed it right off. So she kinda looks more like a farmer, but that is ok. :)
For Kalla's school she was allowed to dress up. First grade had a theme of wearing what you want to be when you grow up. She picked teacher. So we put her hair in a bun, punched out the lenses from some sunglasses and tied them on a string (she mostly wore them around her neck that day). I made a cute little A+ Teacher apple pin for her to wear on her cardigan. She was too cute!
