This year for Halloween, we decided to keep things a little bit more low key. We decided to buy Reese’s costume as well as not have Grant or I dress up since we figured having a newborn was a good enough excuse. Our church has Trunk or Treat, but we ended up skipping because it started past Reese’s bedtime,but we are hoping next year we can make it. Reese’s school had a Halloween program and trick or treating in the school as well so Sebastian and I joined the fun.
Last year for Halloween, we knew that we(as in I) wanted to dress Reese as an Ewok. I already had part of the costume, and so that made me decide to do a whole family Star Wars Theme for our Costumes. I decided this before even knowing that there was another movie coming out. Below are links to the tutorials I followed to make our costumes, and some pictures of the process.
So, back in February, I bought some Fair Isle Reindeer Fabric from Girl Charlee. I already had plans on what to do with most of the fabric which was sew Grant and I Christmas shirts for this year’s Christmas Card. I ended up having plenty of fabric left over and so used it to make our Christmas Gift to all of my Nieces and Nephew.
Grant and I were invited to a coworker’s Halloween party, and we had nothing to wear….So, Grant found a sweet instructables, and this is what happened. We bought our supplies at Home Depot, Walmart, Target, and Joann Fabrics, but I will try to link as many of our products used online since that is so much easier these days. We started our costumes Friday night right after work until around 1 or 2am, and then all day Saturday from 9:00am to 8:15pm. We were planning on leaving to go to the party at 8:30pm.
