This year the costumes were a little stressful. My youngest wanted to be Spiderman (we already have it- yes!) and my 2nd oldest wanted to be a football player (we already have it- yes!) but my oldest wanted to be Garchomp. The Pokemon Garchomp. Which you cannot buy in a store.
Easy peasy right? AAHHHHH! Is what I am thinking. He originally wanted to be a shower like the Karate Kid and I tried desperately to try and convince him how cool that would be. Didn't work. So I got my brain thinking and myself shopping to try and find some stuff.
And then on Saturday I decided I just needed to bite the bullet and start. I hate sewing.
After all day Saturday and Sunday afternoon I finished!!!! Hallelujah!
So now we have babe's costume:
My oldest's costume:
Now my second child saw how much fun it was for me to spend all my time making the oldest a costume. So Sunday he declared he wanted to be Pichu. Groan. Kill me now.
I thought- maybe I can do this in time for our church trunk or treat on Wednesday so off I go again- looking for yellow clothes. Luckily my mom had sent me some yellow dye a few years ago and my son already has some Iowa State football pants (ahem) so I dyed a shirt yellow, he will wear his football pants inside out and he will wear this:
And we are good.
The tail isn't zig-zagged says my husband. Shuddy (we are using a black cat tail from the costume box). I am done. Wait, yes I will need to make a collar tonight but I am done. Oh, now my oldest wants me to make some adjustments to the costume. NOOOO. I am done people. No adjustments.
