Last minute Halloween Costumes!

Tarzan and I toyed with ideas for the perfect Halloween costume for WEEKS!
He wanted bacon & eggs, I wanted Lucy & Ricki.
He wanted Gladiators. I wanted 20's Gangsters.
We couldn't agree on anything.

Then we decided we weren't going to dress up this year -
But then Saturday afternoon came and so did the Party Invites!
So I had to pull something together quick!

 $5.00 & 1 hour later - we had costumes ....

Uncle Sam & Miss Liberty!

*please excuse the TERRIBLE pictures -
we had a rookie working the camera! :)


Very fitting, right? Since the hubs is in the Navy! :)

The Uncle Sam Hat was soo easy to make! I bought a foam cowboy hat from the Dollar Store for the "base" - then I used a poster board for the tall part! I added strips of felt for the stripes & stars with hot glue. I thought about trying to make the Uncle Sam jacket but we didn't have time! So instead - we played up the Vintage War Posters and I used wonder under for the words "I want you! I used one of his old white shirts and the bow tie was made with leftover scraps from the hat- so the whole thing cost me less than $3.00!

For mine, I wore an old dress that I already had! Then I bought a piece of thick Foam at Michael's, painted it and then free-handed the crown & hot glued it to an old headband! My torch was a flashlight from the Dollar Store, wrapped in Fabric with a half a Styrofoam ball covered with orange fabric for the flame! I had almost everything on hand except the foam and the flashlight, so it cost me $2.00!

Not too shabby for last minute and $5.00!
We had so much fun at a costume party with friends!

and of course my monkey man was none other than a monkey for his 1st Halloween! :)
We took him to a Fall Festival at church,
he was too young but he loved watching the big kids!

Then Sunday night they handed out candy! :)

Nelson loved it! :)

I'm pulling down the Halloween decorations today ...
perhaps I'll put on some Christmas music while I do it.

ohhhhh, hello November.
I've missed you!
