Things That Go 'Bump' In The Night

Fred: ghost, Dan: zombie, Stella: mummy, Chloe: vampire, Katie: witch, old hag, Gypsy...



Chloe's eyes are gold because she is fed. (Twilight reference.)

We bought Chloe's costume at Walmart, necklace at Old Navy. She was trying to be Jane from Eclipse. I hot glued strips of fabric to Stella's shirt and leggings. I made Fred's cloak to wear over a pillowcase.
My Walmart nose wouldn't stay on but that is ok because I have a pointy nose of my own. My dress and shoes are from the DI. I died cheesecloth to go over it. The wig is Dan's mom's.
Dan ripped up old and thrifted clothes then rolled around in the dirt for added effect.

Here in Idaho they don't change holidays just because they are on Sunday. So we didn't let our kids go trick-or-treating on the sabbath. But they got plenty of candy at the trunk-or-treat at the church on Saturday and enjoyed handing out candy to kids that came by on Sunday.
We really enjoyed the haunted theme. I think I will do this every year. The kids can be whatever they want but it has to be a spooky version. I think the zombie version of Wizard of Oz or princesses or Toy Story or whatever will be more entertaining. We'll see if the kids are on board next year.

Aren't you thankful that you don't have a nose like that? I love the makeup! You did a great job. How fun.

Well done. You are spot on with the make-up. My kids were both ghosts but the face paint tickled them and it didn't last or look very good. Plus, Gus is two and couldn't hold still.
Halloween is your holiday.

Spoooky! Just put the word "zombie" in front of anything and it makes a good costume, I always say.

Katie those costumes are awesome. My kids would have freaked out if they saw you. They didn't like anything "spooky." They are wimps like their mother.
