We love dress-up time in this household, and take it very seriously. Alas, Jeremy and I weren't able to swing real costumes this year. It's like there's more important things going on in our life right now. Like . . . finding a job, or something.
But with a little bit of luck we did get the kids all costumed for parties and festivities in October. Everything was super low-key, using mostly things we already had.
I actually really love him in this costume though, because when I was pregnant with him we were considering the name Wyatt, but I couldn't decide if it was a good "little boy" name or if it was too old-sounding. One of the older brothers was on PBS Kids and started watching this show--I'd forgotten about it. I heard the mom talking to Wyatt and decided it was super-cute for a little boy!
Wyatt loved the costume and has now taken to calling his regular hand-me-down blue shoes his "Super Why shoes!"
Then we tried to dye a yellow bow tie he already had red. . . I won't go into the details of that disaster, I'll just say that my soup pot is once again the color of stainless steel, and thank goodness Dillard's sells little boy bow ties.
We made his light-up sonic screwdriver from a light-up pen Jeremy got from a presentation recently--it was perfect! Though it ended up looking more like the tenth Doctor's screwdriver than the Eleventh's.
What you don't have a frame of reference for Jonas' awesome costume?
Owen happened to be telling my mom that he wanted to be Link (from the Legend of Zelda) for Halloween, and she said--"Hey, I have a Link costume!"
a tutorial for making a shield for Owen.
The night before the party, we found out Owen's friend was dressing up like Zelda!
