I'm having so much fun going back through pictures from Halloweens past. This was probably Dyl's all time favorite costumes. He was and still is a HUGE Star Wars fan. You can see how much he loved his Light Saber.
For Dylan's Luke Skywalker costume I made him a simple lined tunic and a brown sash belt. He wore his one brown pants and carried his Light Saber. For Denali's Princess Leia costume I made her two braided buns for her hair. I simply braided really long lengths of brown yarn and the hot glue them into spiral cones. Then we bobby pinned them to her own smaller buns. I also made her a long, turtle neck dress with wide sleeves. She wore sandals and one of my metallic belts.
These Owl Pumpkins were probably the cutest pumpkins I've ever made.
I obviously have to have some influence on my kids costume choices if they are going to have costumes that go together. But, every year I try to pick something they are really interested in. I want them to be excited about their costumes. Do you let your kids pick a character from their wildest dreams, do you give them very limited choices, or do you have 100% control over the selection?
