It's almost October!

In our house that means finalizing our Halloween costume ideas...
Here's what we have so far:
  • A scary vampire - she's trying to work out from which time period the vampire hails so she can decide on clothing (the 9-year-old)

  • A beheaded Anne Boleyn - she has visions of covering her real head and carrying a paper mache head in her arms... (the 7-year-old)

  • A ghost - totally set on a white sheet with eye holes (most excellent!!!) (the 6-year-old)

  • A cuddly puppy - she wants to match her well-loved stuffed animal, which is white with black spots (the 5-year-old)


  1. I LOVE the Anne Boleyn idea! Whatever the costumes may be, I'm very curious to see them when they are done.

    How do you make the paper mache head?

  2. I love it, too. I'm thinking of doing the traditional balloon in paper, pop the balloon and then paint the mache to look like a face. We have a wig we can use, and crowns from our dress-up box... I'm interested to see their costumes as well! They are a creative gang so it should be interesting. (Of course, in order to share the images I'll have to hurry and get a new camera as our old one broke a few weeks ago...)
