Since my children no longer want home made Halloween costumes, I thought I would get nostalgic and take a look back at all of the costumes I had made over the years. It was a lot of fun finding and looking at these pictures. As I went back in time Annabelle and Sam got younger and it made me miss them as babies and made me realize how fast the time does go! Maybe next year I can convince them to let me make their costumes….maybe!
Annabelle's 2nd Halloween, I made this flower costume out of felt.
Annabelle's 2nd Halloween as a flower
Annabelle's 3rd Halloween as a '50's girl, again I used felt for the skirt, ribbon and an iron on poodle
Annabelle's 4th Halloween as a mermaid, she was so into mermaids when she was little!
I think this is my favorite!
Annabelle as a peacock! This was so much fun to make and I loved painting her face too! Or maybe this is my favorite!
Annabelle and Sam as Cowboy and Indian! I sprayed Annabelle's hair black for this one!
Annabelle went as The Princess and the Pea for her Kindergarten Fairy Tale Parade
Last year Annabelle was a flamingo!
And Sam was a goldfish! I used a TON of cupcake liners and hot glue for this costume and I remember I had a really hard time finding gold and yellow. But it turned out so cute!
