I LOVE Halloween. I love the candy, I love the decorations, and I especially love the costumes. We plan ours out months ahead of time and I love to carefully thrift or sew each part of the costume.
This year we were…..
Bellatrix Lestrange, Dumbledore and Harry Potter!
Unfortunately, these are the best pictures we have of all of us together.
Luckily, my friend Betsy took one on her phone
I am really happy with how our costumes came out.
I’ll be back with more details on how I made them later in the week.
At least until they were struck by a spell from Dumbledore’s wand. . .
J.K. Rowling forgot to mention that Dumbledore could magically tap a keg
OMG Zombie priest and nun!
(And duh, Speed Racer)
This is the only picture we have of Lois as Harry Potter but I love it so much.
Mary Poppins was handing out spoonfuls of
Times a thousand.
I was sewing sequins on that damn vest until 5:00 Saturday afternoon.
Jo made the cutest scarecrow
Anna has a bun in the oven!
We had a blast hanging out with our friends and seeing all the creative costumes. It was our first holiday party to host in the new (actually, it’s been almost a year since we bought it) house and I can say for certain it won’t be the last.
Ugly Christmas sweater party anyone?
