Halloween Costumes

large collage

This is a crazy busy month!!!!  With Halloween parties, fall festivals, birthday parties, trips to the pumpkin patch, and the list goes on… It’s definitely time to start thinking about  Halloween costumes.  Chances are your little girl wants to be Anna or Elsa and your son wants to be a super hero, a Ninja Turtle, or a Transformer.  This list is kinda off the wall and outta the box, most are handmade and all are pretty quirky…  Just the way I like it.

So funny, I especially like the little boy holding the soccer ball.  This is a costume you can buy, but I don’t think it would be too hard to make.
