Our Halloween DIY Costumes!

This year we pretty much threw together super last minute. Pinterest came in handy and as for Donald, well, he just made his costume up out of thin air. It's pretty epic if you ask me. In case you're wondering, I'm a lady out of a comic book and Bailey is an old woman. Her costume was so fun to make.. and we had mostly everything we needed. 

This is my dress - yes, an adult sized dress. It just happen to have this hand drawstring in the middle that ties as tight as you want it to. So, we cinched it right up and clothes pinned the back so that the straps stayed up on her.

I went to the craft store to get gray yarn to make a wig for Bailey, but then I saw these cute bobbin thingamajigs. I thought they would make perfect little rollers for her hair. So, we painted them pink and rolled them up with mini bobby pins.

We added a cardigan, purse, "cane"... and, of course, a tennis ball and she was ready to go!

Oh, and some sandals WITH socks. :)

Dana helped... a lot. And I helped paint her face like the stunning FOX she is. ;)
Hope you're Halloween was fun! What did you dress up as?
