Here's my Lil' Punkin...
And my own personal superheroes who saved me from a life of not being a MOMMY!
Cat in the Hat
This was made with a black sweatsuit, faux fur, fabric glue, and eye liner.....real easy. I bought the hat from a costume shop. I think it came with gloves, but he wouldn't wear them.
This was a cool fireman raincoat I bought from the Carter's outlet store, rubber rain boots from Target, fireman's hat, and cardboard box turned into firetruck with paint, markers, foam paper, tin foil, and ribbon. The boys STILL play with it.
This outfit was worn by both boys. My youngest...the one in this picture was NOT friendly with the camera at this age. Getting him to stop and look was impossible. I don't have pics of my oldest in this outfit on the computer...and I'm too lazy to go dig it up out of one of umpteen boxes and scan it. My mom made the vest out of faux fur. Hat was a cheapie from Walmart. The sheriff's badge was from a trip to San Antonio. I highly encourage going to San Antonio to get the badge. Any other badge just wouldn't look right. And I think I should go with you as your chaperone. Just sayin'.....
But the boys were thrilled. The good thing is that my youngest actually got the Darth Vader costume for potty training a few months earlier. (Yay for potty training!)
German soldier and Indiana Jones
German soldier was made from stuff I already had at home....yay! The leather coat came from ebay, fedora from Target...mens department, foam whip from Target, toy guns from toy box. Voilla! I had to include a pic of the boys friends...Mario and Luigi. You can make this costume with overalls, t-shirt, fake moustache, felt letter on the hat, and garden gloves. Too cute!
These two pictures are of face painting from a festival...but super cute. I thought about doing something like this for Halloween this year...but like I said, the boys want some boring store bought costume. *insert disappointed face*
THIS is my favorite costume......EVAH!!
I am a retired Hooters waitress and the Prince is Larry the Cable Guy. Please note that my badonkadonk is enhanced with pillow stuffing. It's big in real life....just not quite THAT big....
