This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Pop-Tarts.
I love making my kids' Halloween costumes. I don't sew, but I'm pretty good with duct tape and a hot glue gun. Actually, come to think of it, I'm not all that good with a hot glue gun as I always seem to burn my fingers when I use one. Anyway, I love coming up with creative ideas for costumes. Here are a few I've made in past years...
The Whack-a-Mole costume I made for Austin a few years ago
The Marge Simpson costume I made for Savannah a few years ago
Here's a young Jackson, dressed as Jimmy Neutron.
I think it's fun coming up with creative ideas for costumes. It sure beats the kind I had as a kid. You know, the plastic costumes that tied in the back and the hard, molded plastic masks with the little rubber bands of death that would always snap you in the face. These masks always had those little slits in them for the mouth and we'd stick out tongues out and cut them on the sides of the hard plastic. Ahhh yeah, good times, good times.
This year? You want to know what my kids are going to be this year? Well, I don't have all the pieces of their costumes in place quite yet, but I'll give you a hint. The kids will probably build a rocket, or fight a mummy, or climb up the Eiffel Tower. Maybe they'll discover something that doesn't exist, or give a monkey a shower...
