Costume Creation

on July 14, 2013






Lots of pictures with this one, but its worth it to share our fun. Before we were new parents, Lee and I were in love with costuming. We actually won an award at a cosplay event! Well, we were inspired at one point or another by seeing the play Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street to make our own costumes and learn the songs from the popular musical. My husband made most everything and I put the trim and finer detailing on the costumes. We would go around downtown San Antonio and sing and dance while handing out ‘bloody’ (read red glittery icing) brownie bites and ‘meat’ fruit pies. We had a blast! Once Linden was born, we had to include him, so we made him into a little meat pie for his first Halloween using a baby pumpkin pattern. I made veggies for the cute pie costume out of felt sheets and batting. We didn’t get to go out that year due to colic and cranky baby, and last year we ended up going as a princess, her protector rogue guy, and a little dragon. Sadly during our last move, my top was put in a box that went to Goodwill by accident. I guess once Nathan gets here, we will have a Toby, Sweeney, Lovett (I get a new costume!) and our meat pie for next year. :). What are you all planning on being for Halloween?

    I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I don’t know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!
