Growing up, I never had a homemade costume. Sure, I put my little brother in my soccer uniform, but I didn't actually make a costume of any kind ever. I've always admired people who think of something and then make it.
My sister, crafty gal she is, made this costume for Evan:
Evan as Lego Man
Isn't that the cutest!? I told him he'd have the best costume out of his entire class. While all the other kids have costumes bought at Target, he has a costume custom-made by his mom. He won't be one of the five pirates in his class, that's for sure!!
EDIT: I heard from my sister and apparently, his costume was the hit of the entire school! Everyone was stopping to stare and check it out, even the 4th and 5th graders. They were giving him high-fives as he walked by. You know you're cool when you're a 1st grader getting high-fives from the older kids!
Here are some pictures of our jack'o'lanterns we made over the weekend:
Hmmmm.... can you guess which one I made?!? :-)
More pictures of jack'o'lanterns made last night at my neighbors apt. to come later today!!
