All Hallow's Eve

Better late than never.  My goal was to do this Sunday, but I was sickety, sick, sick, sick.  I guess that's what you get when you procrastinate sewing until the wee hours of Thursday night. I mean, Friday morning.  It's BYU all over again.  How did I ever graduate? ...seriously.

This year, our family was themed!  We haven't done this since our oldest was one and we went as the Three Musketeers.  So, I thought that I would share with you pictures of the costumes that I came up with this year.  And their inspirations! 

Our littlest went as Alice from Alice in Wonderland:

Though, to be honest, she cried when she realized she wasn't going as this:

But I wanted her to be instantly recognizable. So, this is what we came up with:
I found a dotted organza for the apron!  Perfect!
Our redhead just had to go as the red rose.  It was TOO perfect.

Can you see her green stems?
Figuring out how to make this costume almost took as much time as sewing it. Almost.
Our oldest went as the Mad Hatter, which I was very excited about. I loved interpreting a boy's character into a girl's costume!

 And add this:

 plus this:

And you get...

Can you tell that hubby's and mine were kinda afterthoughts? Oh well. 
Next year I have plans to make it more even!

Thanks, Julianne for the great pics! Bet you can't tell which ones were her's. Hahahahaha.
