It has been about six months since I have posted on this blog. I don't have many readers, so I don't think anyone missed me too much. I was just burned out on blogging, and really burned out on a lot of things. I think I have recovered enough to make an appearance here occasionally again. I make no promises as to how often.
My kids love Halloween. I love making their costumes. It's true that I have a habit of putting them off and then stressing out about them. And it's true that I am not by any means a professional at making costumes. I barely sew, but I still have fun. For the most part the kids enjoy what I make for them, and I do my best to meet their expectations.
S chose to be a Roman Centurion. I think I spent the most time on this costume. His helmet does look a little bit like a chicken head from some angles, but I did the best I could after procrastinating. I feel bad that it isn't better, but I think it turned out okay since I just made it up as I went along.
T loves video games. He thought it would be fun to be a video game for Halloween. This one was relatively easy to put together in a couple of hours.
J as the 11th Doctor from Doctor Who. Most of this was bought and put together. I did make his sonic screwdriver.
B wanted to be Hermione Granger. I sewed the robes and the grey sweater, and put the rest together.
K wanted to be Red Link from the Four Swords game. This isn't a great pic but it's the best one we got that shows his whole costume.
Baby D as Baby Mario. It's always nice when they are young enough to just agree with what you pick. Everything is clothes we already had, and I had sewed the hat a while ago for a different Mario Costume. This was the easiest one.
Phew! Off the hook for another year!
