Goooooood morning everyone!! I hope everyone is all dressed up in their costumes and ready to take their little ones out on the town tonight for some much anticipated trick-or-treating! Or, if you don’t have kiddos yet, I hope you’re getting done up to hand out some candy!!
I remember that was always my favourite when I was little, I LOVED the houses that were decorated up like crazy and I remember enjoying it even MORE when the door would swing open and there would be a witch or a vampire standing in front of me!!
This year was SUCH a fun year of costume planning for me because it’s our first time dressing up as a family of FIVE and it is Annie’s very first Halloween!! While I feel like I SORT of left it to the last minute, I’m absolutely in LOVE with how our costumes turned out!! Honestly, it killed me to wait until now to share all of these photos with you!! ?
Last year we dressed up as the characters from Peter Pan, the year before that, which was Leo’s very first Halloween, we were the characters from Wizard of Oz … and this year we went as characters from … ALICE IN WONDERLAND!!!! I was able to piece together these costumes from a mix of our currently owned items, second-hand items and a few things I ordered online from HalloweenCostumes.com!
Justin’s costume cracks me right up! The rabbit head is actually from a full rabbit costume he bought when he was 16!! If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll recognize it because every year Justin likes to dress up like the Easter Bunny for the kids during their Easter eggs hunt! The rest of his costume is from HalloweenCostumes.com, except for the glasses which I found at Value Village, and the umbrella is Mindy’s!
Leo is the Mad Hatter … I couldn’t resist seeing him in a top hat ? … Most of his costume, which the exception of the hat, I found in his wardrobe!! His shoes are from Old Navy, his pants are from Petit Vilains, his white shirt is from GAP (he wears this ALL the time!), bow tie is from The Printed Bow, his blazer is from ZARA (which we bought for the holidays!), and lastly, his hat is from HalloweenCostumes.com!
We dressed Annie up for her very first Halloween as the Cheshire Cat! I found her tail and her ears on HalloweenCostumes.com, I was able to pin the tail on to her onesie (which I pained myself! LOL!), and the headband with the ears was wayyy too big for her so I cut the ears off and glued them to one of her bows!
Last but not least … Nacho … aka …. the QUEEN OF HEARTS!! LOLLL!!!! I’m not sure why, but I can’t get enough of dressing Nacho up like a girl … maybe it’s because he looks so damn good in a dress! ? I struggled to find Nacho a dog costume this year so we had to get a bit creative! Remember last year when he dressed up like a superhero?! Well, I took that costume, and bought a toddler Queen of Hearts costume and ended up hiring a wonderful seamstress by the name of Virginia here in Kelowna and she helped me basically modify and meld together the two costumes to great this!!
What are YOU dressing up as?! Make sure to share your comments below!!
Jilly … er … I mean, Alice.
