Some past Homemade costumes:
Bubby as a Hershey Kiss! I used a hula hoop(base), silver fabric, pipe cleaners(neckline), a upside down plastic bowl(hat), more pipe cleaners(hat) and a fruit by the foot wrapper(paper from the hat)
He wore a black turtle neck and black sweat pants under. He loved wearing it every time he tried it on, but Halloween night it wasn't worn for long, he was in a bad mood that night and wasn't even up for too much trick or treating, oh well I was proud!
Some of my Favorite Store Bought Costumes:
In the kids movie "Shrek" The Donkey and Dragon have babies, they are called Dronkies, we like to refer to them as Dragasses :) We found Bubby the "Dronky" costume online for a little under $15.00. It was too cute to pass up! It is still one of my favorite costumes ever!
This costume of the baby Skunk was borrowed from my niece. She wore the costume the year before, I just loved how cute baby Boogie looked as a Skunk and the tail was adorable too. It also didn't hurt that it cost me a big fat nothing! :)
I colud have made that:
Until last year Babydoll had gone Trick or Treating with her mom ( so I don't have any Halloween pictures other than this one) Halloween always fell on one of her three days. Last year Halloween fell on one of our four days. Jerm and his ex wife celebrate the holidays on "whoever has that day" Christmas, Birthday Party, and Thanksgiving are shared. It's really hard to explain, but his ex and I get a long fantastic she has become one of my best friends. The Holidays are becoming more of a shared event, his ex and her boyfriend are always invited to our house to celebrate and we all get a long fine. This is the costume Babydoll wore last year, I so should have made this I bet I could have saved Babydoll's grandma $20.00 it is just a tutu dress and some wings LOL
Ideas for this year:

I have no ideas for Monkey at the moment, and neither does he, oh well we will figure it out!
