Fave Halloween costumes!

It's Halloween again, and this is the second year in a row neither of us has had costumes... whoops.  No real parties to go to, although we did carve pumpkins with friends, so no real reason to dress up.

Oh--and, like the clockwork that it is, I got three Christmas catalogs in the mail yesterday, and the JoAnn and Michael's ads had Christmas stuff all over the front pages.  We are impatient consumers, aren't we?

Anyway, I know I'm a little late to the game, it being the DAY OF Halloween and all, but I had to share some of these awesome Halloween costumes for little folk.  Someday I'll have an adorable child to dress up in one of these, but for now this gets me in the holiday mood!  Found this awesome Pinterest board where all these great ideas lie.

Sooooo cute.  Love Monsters, Inc.!

And while you have a bald baby, you'd might as well...

And in the "kids dressed as adults" theme...

And here's mini-Wednesday:

And how cool is this?!

And, pretty much my all-time favorite, by Kathleen on Grosgrain last year:


Seeing all these cool DIY, recycled, assembled-from-Dollar-Tree-goodies, totally creative and cool costumes makes me a little sad I didn't put together the Jessica Rabbit dress I was planning (making over an old party dress I have!).  Ah, well... there's always next year for that.

In the meantime, I should try to get on top of the seasons and start reading my magazines shortly after they come in.  Halloween = over.  Next up: Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Hope you have a good Halloween =)


  1. Love these!!! The Bender and mini Audrey costumes are my favorite!
