I always thought I would dress them up in costumes that would play off each other. I have yet to do that. This year Sam wanted to be a train and Izzy wanted to be Alice. I enjoy making the kids' Halloween costumes and didn't think I was going to pull off the train request until I came across this costume Cortney made with her son. It's amazing and Sam loved the photo I showed him so we basically did the exact same thing. All I bought was some duct tape, black foam core paper for the wheels, and gold scrapbook paper. We already had a bunch of boxes to choose from. Cheap and ubber cute!
Izzy nailed the Alice look. I used a pattern to make her dress and then adjusted it a little. The darn thing came out so short at first! I added more length to the skirt by putting in a bunch of flat pleats, which actually totally made the dress so it was a win in the end!
You know what happens when a train gets going a little too fast??
They get derailed :D
Izzy was impressed with her haul. As was I - just look at all of that chocolate I can steal!!!
And all Sam cared about were the suckers. Which, as you can see, ended up in his eyebrows and hair :D
I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween!!!
