So with Halloween right around the corner, we have no idea what we're going to be. We've been invited to a party (yay!) so we'll have to think of something hilarious/witty that includes the bump. Which, by the way, is growing so much lately. Unfortunately little Zola isn't invited to the party, but we'll be sure to dress her up in her costumes all week long. I think she has about ten different tiny puppy costumes, no joke. It's because they all go on super sale after the holiday and I just can't resist scooping up those teenie tiny pup ensembles.
So do share, what are you dressing up as? Maybe this will give you some added creative ammo for your costume or your kiddo's look. LOVE THESE! They all just make me smile because they are absolutely adorable but also because they're all homemade. Love me some DIY or borrowed/second-hand costumes. And all these lil' toddler looks make us both look forward to many years of dressing up a lil' bubba too.
Ok, no post would be complete without a bit of a personal peek either. Thought I'd share my Momma's amazing skills for making homemade costumes back in the day. I also love how we'd recycle them over the years as numerous lil' nuggets would wear the same thing again (ie: cavemen/women) to offset costs. Seriously, she was green before green was cool. Don't laugh too loud at me, bwah haw!
Cave Lady Babies...I look skeered and my older sis, Brittany, looks adorable!
Mom, seriously...how pimp is my clown ensemble? Even sporting my Dad's massive Nike kicks! Also, Britt's gypsy is totally adorable too.
We were quite the circus, that's the truth. I was the Ringleader, Britt was the acrobat and baby Beckett (complete with his Curious George stuffed animal) rounded out the crew as a baby leopard/cat. Doesn't my Mom have mad homemade/DIY Halloween costume making skills? PS - Sorry, but I have absolutely no idea who is behind that clown mask, ha!
Lastly, greening our Halloween by reusing the Cave Baby look...Beckett is ready to bop any innocent bystander on the head, ha! I'm a hula girl and Britt is an awesome piece of pizza. I can remember her (Britt) making this costume, it rocked!
