DIY Vampire & Skeleton Costumes
It's days before Halloween and I'm not scrambling to find a costume. Hurray!!! This year was relatively easier than last year. How? I mixed and matched this year to get a costume that worked for both kids.
#1 wanted to be a vampire and I already had the shirt, amulet, and pants. All I had to do was buy some Halloween Satin at Fabricland for his vampire cape ($8). #2 wanted to be a skeleton again like last year. Unfortunately, his shirt was too small. So I went to H&M to buy a basic black shirt and found a skeleton shirt for $6. I was able to re-use the pants. Yay!!!
We went to two Halloween events this weekend. On Saturday, we went to the safety village. It was chilly, so their costumes were covered by hats, gloves, jackets and rain boots. Kinda ruins the effect but I'd rather have a covered skeleton than a sick skeleton.
The village has the right about of "spookiness". It is an event designed for little kids so you won't find people hiding in corners just to scare you.
I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't excited to see the McDonald's truck. I'll take a double double please!
On Sunday, we went to the museum and trick or treated amongst the historic homes. Swoosh goes the cape!
Love seeing olden time tools
My favourite is the general store. It's so cute!
The kids liked the Blacksmith the best... something about the horns and fire.
After the weekend, #2 asked, "are we going to go trick or treating for a third time tomorrow?". It's so fun to be a kid!!
