Halloween 2009: the costumes

November 3, 2009

Each year, I vow to go low key. Then Addison comes to me with a particular request, and, well, I just have to see if I can try it. At what other point in my life will I have the chance to dissect an umbrella to make bat wings (Halloween 2008), or hunt around for the perfect trash can to house a sweet little R2D2? Exactly.

Here are the results from this year:

Addison R2D2

In the end, R2D2 wasn’t nearly as difficult as I had imagined. One trash can, some castoff styrafoam packaging, the boys’ handmade drawings, a few buttons, window screen, (and only one second-degree burn on my hand from the glue gun) and we were good to go.

Magician Jackson

For Jackson’s magician costume, I whipped out the bowtie and cumberbund the night before.He’s been practicing his coin and removable-thumb tricks for weeks.

Soldier preston

Preston, thankfully, was gracious enough to request the old soldier standby, a costume we received from good friend Jared several years ago. Phew.

Asher giraffe

And Asher was completely content with his bargain-hunt giraffe costume. He actually smiled each time we slid that giraffe hood on him. A natural at this costuming business. Halloween success.

    Kenna said: Jackson is funny. She like Asher’s costume the best.
    I, on the other hand, was MOST impressed with Addison’s costume. Way to go, Tiffany!

    Wow! Addison’s costume is so so amazing. Each piece of the costume is so perfect and so creative. Nice job!

    These kids are just too cute. I’m determined to come visiting next year for this and other holidays!
