I have two little boys...4 and 6. They are dressing as a blue power ranger with muscles (the most important part you know!) and an astronaut! Just thought it would be fun to see what everyone's kids or grandkids!) chose!

Hi Jen! My almost 2 year daughter is going to be a pink flower...her face is the middle of the flower, I'm going to dress up like a bumble bee and my 10 year old son is going to be a zombie! icon_surprised.gif icon_lol.gif His costume is going to be really cool tho! We got him a used suit and tie....I rolled it around in the mud and we have some cool make-up effects to do on him. He is at the age that he wants to be something scary.

Grandson Sam will be Peter from the Chronicles of Narnia and Granddaughter Teya will be Peter's younger sister. The kids aren't allowed scary costumes and won't be out trick or treating (not my idea!) but we had a costume party tonight at the church and the theme was Narnia. Great decorations and costumes and of course I made sugar cutout cookies with Antonia's icing. I made little cutout crowns, castles and snowflakes. We had a lot of fun thumbs_up.gif

Great costumes! I love the zombie idea! I made the boys costumes last year...they were robots. I had some cute ideas this year, and was going to make the 6 year olds, but could talk my 4 year old out of the muscles, lol. We got to Target, and 6 year old just HAD to be an astronaut! Oh well, I knew the day would come when they wouldn't want homemade costumes, just didn't think it would be this soon icon_cry.gif Oh well, they look cute anyway! I love halloween...how else would I get my candy fix til Easter? icon_lol.gif

My 9 y/o daughter is going as a monster bride (complete with black wedding gown/veil, fishnet stockings, black leather go go boots, and a Morticia Addams wig - should be interesting!)

My 6 y/o son is going as the Thing from Fantastic 4 (complete with electronic thing hands and feet)

And me? Well...I have a costume, but I may chicken out and not wear it! It is a little old fat lady, in a huge pink polka dot dress carrying a lost puppy sign! But, when I turn around...oh, my! There's the puppy-stuck in the butt crack on the pink dress! Too funny!

DD (8yrs old) wants to be a witch this year. After being a princess for 5 yrs. I was going to make her outfit. But with doing all of these cakes icon_cry.gif We went to our thrift store and got an AWESOME outfit we designed. First a witch dress at $2.95, Hat .50, Shoes (she can wears later) $1.95 Total $5.40. If I were to make her outfit it would have cost me over $30.00 without shoes. I found a huge bargian icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif Teenage soon who knows what he is going to do icon_cry.gif icon_cry.gif icon_cry.gif But I ain't paying.

Well, my 10 year old has to wear the same costume as last year from a "promise" as it was a little expensive. he is going as a ninja - complete with the two toe shoes - all in black (so yes, he has reflective stuff with him).

My 18 month old has two costumes - one for indoor parties and one for outdoors. For indoors we have a little kimono type outfit - pants and shirt. For outdoors I made an oscar the grouch costume and made a costume for his stroller to look like a garbage can... have to make the "can" yet, but the grouch is done and very cute!

me - I think I'm going as a chef (gives me an excuse to buy a chef jacket) and Dh is going as a dirty old professor from an old costume, but maybe I'll make him a souschef instead! LOL

My 4 year old is going as Thomas the Train. He had his preschool Halloween party Thursday. I asked him how the party went when I picked him up from school and he said "Great, and the big kids really liked my costume." It ticked him to death that the "big" kids liked it.

ooo found a great costume for me! I was at Sur La Table and they had their witches apron (witches bottom half) on sale 50% off. So, I got that and then I went to Joannes and bought some fabric to make a chef's hat (should be easy - I sew). The fabric is orange with witches hat, so it ties in nicely.

Then, with complementing fabric I am going to sew/embroider this on a t-shirt or old turtleneck: "Witch in the kitchen", with a B in front crossed out to make the W for in front of itch.... either that or... Witchy Chef with the same cross out of the B and replaced by a W...

I think it's quite cute and all together it cost me about $11 inclduing thread! Not too shabby!

Great idea for a post! I love reading about everyone's costumes. My 2 year old son is going to be a pirate (we went to Disneyland a few weeks back and he's been singing, "Yo ho, yo ho" ever since!). My 3 1/2 year old is going to be Bedtime Bear (Care Bear). I was actually pretty shocked that he picked this costume out. He's been totally into princesses and everything girly for a while now. When we went to the store to find a Care Bear costume, we found three in his size - Tender Heart (brown but has a big heart on it) and a pink one, in addition to Bedtime Bear who is blue. I was convinced that he'd grab the pink one as soon as he saw it but he didn't! I was really, really surprised.

This will hopefully be our first year really trick-or-treating. Two years ago, we tried to go with my niece and nephew but all of the costumes (masks) freaked my little guy out. Then last year, we talked about going but Xander still had some pretty strong memories and he didn't want to go so I called up the family and asked if everyone could be home the night BEFORE Halloween and we put on our costumes and went trick-or-treating then (my hubby has a big family so they got plenty of candy just doing that). It worked really well because no one else was out and about in costumes and it was a really positive experience for him. This year, I'm thinking about just going to the mall for trick-or-treating (they do it there every year) because it's not dark and shadowy, plus it's a familiar place. That might be a nice way to ease into it. Then next year, watch out! We'll be out there on the streets with everyone else!
