Ready for Halloween?
Posted on October 13th, 2008 @ 12:02 pm

Yesterday we went to a local farm that has a fesitval every fall (I’ll post a few pix later this week), and afterwards we went to my brother-in-law’s house to hang out and let the kids play.  BIL’s wife wanted to go get her daughter’s Halloween outfit and asked if I wanted to go along, since I was still looking for the Kiddo’s outfit pieces.

First we went to a party store, where she got her daughter’s Care Bear outfit.  We were able to find a cheap ladybug ensemble (wings & hairband with fuzzy antanea) for the Kiddo.  Then we went to W@l-M@rt to look for the clothes but had no luck there.  We then went to K0hl’s, where I found a pair of black pants & shirt that she could wear normally at school (double-duty, yeah!), which would work fine for her ladybug outfit.

Now she’s pretty much all set for Halloween, I just need to hide the ladybug wings to keep her from ruining them until Halloween.. after that she can wear them as often as she likes.

Halloween is right around the corner

Like anyone doesn’t realize that already. LOL

I still haven’t decided what the Kiddo is going to be this year.  I don’t even think she has any clue either, since she doesn’t quite understand the idea fully just yet.

Her first Halloween, she was a vampire witch.  It fit perfectly because she was just getting her top teeth in around that time – and the teeth that came in were NOT her front teeth.  It was the two teeth on either side of the two front teeth.  So she looked like a little vampire. LOL  I’ll have to post a pic of that this weekend so you can see what I mean.

Last year she was a pixie princess (she had no wings, so she wasn’t a fairy princess).

For the most part I have to pick a costume that she isn’t going to melt in, because where we live, the temperatures are *maybe* in the low to mid 70s at night around Halloween.  Maybe.  So it’s not like I can pick some ultra fluffy outfit that would keep her snug and warm, because we don’t need it.  She’d be a puddle of sweat halfway through trick-or-treating.   So, stuffy outfits are out.

I’m thinking ladybug maybe, if I can find one that is made with lightweight material.  If not I can probably try to make one with black onesie/leotard and tights, and make the “wings” out of cardboard or something.  Why spend the big bucks on a pre-made outfit when a handmade one would look just as cute?  I mean, she’s 2.5 years old, so come-ON!  She’s cute without a flippin’ costume! :laugh:
