WW: Dressing Up Before Halloween {Linky}

This weekend we went to the library's Spooktacular Event. There were older, and younger kids there. I tried to teach Isaak how to play checkers against Indiana Jones AKA Mica. Mica wasn't having in. He was mad that we were winning. At least I got a good photo out of it.


A few weeks ago the boy's school had a fall festival. I tested out my Coraline costume. If you've seen the movie, I'm the "Other Coraline". I teach at an art school, so costumes are big at work. I'm glad I dressed up for the event. I realized that having buttons glued to the tops of my eyebrows would never last all of Halloween day. They drove me nuts for just a few hours! Blinking hurt! Since then I made button glasses per say. It's wire that attaches the middle of them, skin colored elastic that wraps around my head, and layers of hot glue on the bottom and back of the buttons to make them pop out, so I can blink easily. They don't look as cool, but they are much more comfortable.

Kids at the festival saw me, and asked how the buttons were on my eyes? The silly/twisted person that I am said, "I sewed them there." Their eyes got really big. I had to laugh, and told them the truth. They were glued above my eyebrows.


The boys have been ready for Halloween for some time. They love Halloween. Truth be told, they like dressing up at least once a week.

Isaak's Superman and Mica's Indiana Jones.

Mica's been getting into character by watching The Young Indiana Jones series that we checked out at the library.

Great costumes. Love it. Very nice.

My son used to like to dress up a lot more than he does now, but he still likes it. :) I think the reason is probably that he's steadily outgrowing costumes, and we haven't replenished them.

That's funny about the sewing comment, lol. We're ready for Halloween here too. :)

Cute costume idea! I conquered my fear of gluing stuff to my face and used spirit gum to affix my mask this year.

I wanted to get some of the halloween costumes when they went on sale - for dress up.. but broxton isn't really into anything but star wars and those were wiped out already.

Cool costumes! I especially love yours. We did not have a very good Halloween this year so I am glad that it is over. Enjoy the rest of your day!

It has been a long time since I played checkers. I bet Mica would beat me.
