As we move into October, Halloween is definitely on my mind.
Halloween is that one time of year where you can be anything you want to be!
When I was a child my mother would make my costume, and it was really fun
to try and find different things around the house to make the outfit complete.
To see a costume develop from simple materials is pretty amazing, almost like a dream!
That is why I continue on with the tradition of making Jaxon and Maya's costume
from scratch every year.
|Maya as a mermaid |
Materials: deconstructed previous year's Statue of Liberty costume,
shopping bag tail, handpainted gold details.
|Jaxon as a soldier |
Materials used: his grandfather's BDU deconstructed, rug pad remnants, etc.
