The Perfect Costume

I found the perfect costume for Carter's first Halloween... nevermind that we have a perfectly good purple monster costume that that Allison wore last year and would fit him just fine this year. But I saw this one at Babies R Us the other day and we have to have it. Its $30, and I would never pay that, but I think it'll be pretty easy to make. What do you think?



Too cute, and too perfect, right? I think it'll be pretty easy to make my own... Black sweats & long sleeve onesie (good thing those are available at Halloween), little bit of red, white and black vinyl or something...

On another note, when discussing Halloween, Allison told me she would like to dress up as a princess this year (surprise, surprise!). When pressed, she informed me that Cinderella was her princess of choice. That sounds less easy. Good think we'll probably be living with the super-costume-sewing Grandma... she'll be great help. =)

So cute! If you have any ideas for the Cinderella costume, let me know because that's exactly what Kyla wants to be too!!

Perfect for Carter or for Brian? I think you ought to make a matching one for him. Then you can go as a drum.

LOL -- I am so glad my girls haven't discovered princesses. They are going to be cowgirls this year -- I just have to find hats and bandannas - easy enough.

Mom... Brian intends to go as the rock star "playing" the Carter guitar, which is awesome becuase that means he has to hold the chubby kid. =) I'm contemplating an evil stepmother, ugly stepsister or fairy god mother to coordinate with Allison.
And Amiee... I intend to probably buy a pattern for Cinderella costumes and pick my mom's brain, who is THE master princess-dress costume maker (the past several Halloweens she has done a wedding gown, Belle's gold ballgown and a Tinkerbell costume for my neice).
