Playing Dress-up

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year. You get to be creative and be anyone you want to be.

It is rare that we will buy a Halloween costume for our kids. In the past few years, we've opted to make our own.

In the spirit of the holiday, I want to share with you the way my kids get creative!

Zombie Soccer Player, 80's rocker chick and a Sugar Skull pirate


Daryl Dixon, Zombie Vampire Prom Queen, Elsa

Lala Loopsy Doll, Zombie, Princess
Vampire, Zombie Fairy Princess, Dead Doll

Zombie cheerleader, Red Power Ranger and, in the back, Lil Bit was a cowgirl

Some years, we couldn't think of anything, so we got them costumes. This year, so far, Girl Child wants to be Sailor Moon. I'm not sure what Boy Child and Lil Bit want to be, but I can't wait to start putting it all together!

When I was a kid, I was always Punky Brewster!

What was your favorite?

  1. I absolutely adore home made costumes, I watch for them when I give out candy. Your kids' choices are great!

  2. My kids hate buying costumes at the store. This year I"m trying to find a yellow track suit for a Pikachu costume and green pants for two Creeper costumes.

  3. I love that there is a Zombie every year! :) Ha! I've always loved making up my own costumes! But I will admit to caving a couple of times.


So....what did you think? And are you THAT Sarah Michelle?
