Well, it's that time of year again. My awesome costume idea that I posted about in an earlier post got vetoed by my children once again. I swear next year I will have to bribe them. I fear I'm running out of "cute" costume years.
This year Aaliyah wanted to be a black cat & Uriyah wanted to be a vintage robot. Please don't ask where Uriyah got the word vintage from because I have no idea. Well maybe I have some idea. I use it a lot when we are at garage sales and I'm looking at "old" stuff so I guess he picked it up from that.
I essentially made both costumes. Uriyah's more so than Aaliyah's since she had more of the pieces needed due to her dancing. I was inspired here for Aaliyah's cat costume and here for Uriyah's costume. They look so cute don't they!
However I couldn't stop there. I had a moment of crafting frenzy and whipped up two costumes for my fur babies. And seeing how breakfast is the most important meal of the day for these two they went as...
Egg & Bacon! They didn't stay on very long initially so I added a belly strap which worked really well. I was inspired here.
And for added cuteness here is another picture of Aaliyah all painted up:
