Time to think about Halloween

I know it's still September, but it's time to start thinking about Halloween. I never really liked Halloween until I had kids and now I love it. Costumes are by far the funnest thing to make. I don't worry so much about them being perfect and just want them to be fun. The bigger, sparkly, fru-fru, the better. Now you may be thinking why spend the money on a custom costume? Well, I can pretty much guarantee that your child will wear their costume many many times. Just today my girls had several costume changes. Carly even found her costume for when she was a lobster and spent a good portion of the day in lobster mode. A hand made costume will last far longer than one purchase at the store, and even if there are 5 other Bells in their class, the hand made one will stand out. So get out your scissors, or give me a call, I'd love to make something for your little princess or Cowboy.
Here are my kids costumes over the years.

Bri at 6 months old. The jammies are purchased but I made the flower bonnet.

Bri's nick name was Brianna Banana, and I just couldn't resist.

I made a little 'Sticker' with Brianna Banana on it. This was very fun to make and stretched my creativity.

I actually didn't make the Monkey costume, but just had to include this picture. I did do the embroidery on the t-shirt.

Halloween really gets fun when you have 2 kids and you can coordinate. Here are my little angel and a devil baby.

My little Mermaid.

Little lobster.

Bri wanted to be a 'pretty witch' and what is a witch without her cat. I also made the costume for my cute little neighbor. She was a 'funky witch.'

And the best for last is my two little princesses. I had way to much fun making these and got a little carried away, truth be told. Carly wears this costume daily, and I'm so even exaggerating. She loves it. and when Brianna's friend come to play they fight over who gets to be Bell.


  1. These are amazing! You are so talented!

  2. Those are all awesome. I love the banana, and the sticker on it too! And I LOVE those princess costumes, they are gorgeous!
