Halloween Update

Oh my goodness, did October ever fly by!!  What a fun, crazy, busy, entertaining month.  We went to our 10 year high school reunion, celebrated our son’s 2nd birthday, carved pumpkins, and trick-or-treated like champs.

Ian was extremely excited to be dressed up like Mickey Mouse this year. He absolutely loves everything Mickey, so we knew this would be a great costume for him. The challenge was that all the costumes I found were just ugly. I am not a huge fan of a lot of store costumes anyway because I think they aren’t well made (especially for how expensive they are!). So I decided to make his costume myself, figuring it couldn’t really be all that hard. And you know what? It really wasn’t. And if I hadn’t waited until Wednesday to start, it would have been all that much easier. But I did wait, and so I was up until 1am on Friday morning getting it done, and rushing home from work on Friday to put on the finishing touches.


But seeing that little grinning face in the costume made it ALL worth it. And then some. He recognized that it was Mickey right away and was excited to put everything on- he even tolerated the ears! Definitely a memorable Halloween for us, and the start of (hopefully) many more exciting Halloweens to come.

What was your little one for Halloween??

    • Thanks, Dory! I just used a sleeper pattern that I modified slightly to remove the footies and a super easy shorts pattern. Then spraypainted some cheap, white shoes a nice, bright yellow. Bought some white gloves and the ears and viola! So if you ever need to make a Mickey in the future, you definitely could!
