halloween costumes (belated)


I constructed E's beard with some fringy trim I found at the fabric store, shortened a pair of thrifted adult suspenders, and added a dollar store ax. After a little trick or treat melt down, my dad helped him coin the phrase "lumberjack's don't cry."
I ordered little H's mermaid tail from an Etsy shop, dyed a long sleeve onesie, and constructed the hairpiece and shells with felt and embroidery floss.

We had so much fun this Halloween. E is at a great age for trick or treating festivities. We spent Halloween night at the neighborhood trunk or treat, and E was even willing to keep his beard on for a full round.
