For the past two Halloweens I have had the joy of figuring out the family costume. I had the best time going through movies, newspapers, Pinterest. Anything that could possibly give me a good idea. I do not like wearing costumes that are bulky and hard to maneuver. So that narrows down some of the choices. In 2014 I decided we would have a safari theme. The main reason I chose it was there was not much to make. Charlotte was less then two months old and I did not want to commit to a big project. The only thing I made was her costume and our dog’s, Oscar, costume.
For Halloween 2015 I found inspiration from one of my all-time favorite movies. Dirty Dancing. I had the best time getting items for this family costume! Check it out!
This costume was so easy. The only sewing I did was tailor the high wasted jeans to long shorts and fit the legs to my measurements. Overall, a great costume to wear and it was a crowd favorite! For Halloween this year it will be a little more difficult considering I will be eight months pregnant. We shall see what I am able to come up with!
What is your favorite Halloween costume you ever wore? Any plans for this year? Let me know in the comments below!
