I am still in Halloween recovery, from the all night sewing for days, to the (STILL) constant consuming of candy.  The decorations are now down, and I am a little sad it’s over!  I love Halloween, I mean, I am always down to dress up crazy… always – and Halloween gives me that excuse ;)  So when it comes to our Halloween costumes I can’t help but go all out.  I start to plan out our costumes in September.  Although I procrastinate and am up to my eye balls in fabric and sewing till all hours of the night about a week before…I can’t wait to do it all again next year.  This year we were a circus family, and it might be one of my favorites.  The boys looked beyond adorable!  And I was excited, because, when do you get a chance to wear a tutu?  Anywho, here are some pictures from Halloween, look for the tutorial for our costumes next year!

    Loved these costumes. They are my inspiration for this year.. could you tell me what kind of tie he is wearing? Is that an ascot or just a skinny tie tied differently?

    Oh yay! It is actually just fabric I bought at a fabric store. I just cut it into the size I wanted and tied it around his neck. I tried to buy a thicker fabric and its a knit so it sort of curls on the end. Hope that helps :)


    Did you ever post a DIY? Hoping to recreate something similar this year… I know Im thinking way ahead ;)


    I know I need to do this ASAP! Let me know what questions you have and I can answer anything! I will do that for next year!


    Hi love the costumes will be doing this with our family of 4 how did you make the strongest man costume? Thanks!


    I sewed the pants myself (don’t look to closely ha ha ha) And then I bought a nude dance leotard and took a sharpie, added some hairs. Then I made some muscles and just stuffed them into the leotard :) The belt was just something I found at a thrift store
