Halloween Costume Party Linkup


I am linking up with some fellow bloggers today to show you this years Halloween costumes.  For us, Halloween was a three day event and I’m exhausted and glad that it is now over.  Enjoy the photos!

My mom always hand made our Halloween costumes growing up.  I really think that’s the way to go.  My favorite year was when I was a princess on a horse. I dressed up as a princess and had an actual sewn and stuffed horse I fit into the middle of. I wish I had a picture of that to share! I’m just not a big fan of store bought costumes. This year I went back on forth as to what Sebastian should dress up as.  I came really close to buying a store bought costume.  Not a ton of creativity or energy in this very pregnant lady.  Then I came up with this costume idea and we already had most of the stuff.

The hat I bought off Amazon, the suspenders are from his first birthday and we made the fire extinguisher.  The badge was printed off google images, laminated with tape and pinned on.  The boots we already had, I just put silver duct tape around the top.  We also have a firefighter jacket (my inspiration for the costume), but for the first two events at over 80 degrees, there was no way he was wearing it.  Yay for home-made!  Sebastian got to meet Sparky the dog at our first Halloween even on Saturday.  The first thing he did was walk straight up to him and give him a big hug.

We couldn’t leave Sawyer out of the fun.  He was dressed as Sebastian’s dalmatian puppy.

On Halloween we went truck or treating at the fire station. This was perfect because it’s really close to my house and we only stayed about 30 minutes. img_5321  img_5332  img_5345  img_5353  img_5419

Sebastian’s firefighter friend met us there.

He definitely liked this whole candy getting business.  Somehow I got away with him only eating two pieces of candy that night.

The first two years my mother-in-law made Sebastian his Halloween costumes.  Here’s a look back.

Sebastian’s first Halloween 2014, he got two costumes.  The cutest little puppy and Sebastian Vettle a famous Formula 1 driver.

    So cute! I love the idea of a handmade costume as well. I don’t know how to sew but there are so many fun ideas to just put together various items inexpensively.

    Oh how I sometimes wish I was craftier and make homemade costumes, but it’s just not so. I love that you coordinated with your little fireman… I did that too two years ago 🙂
