Pink Mermaid and Cyclops Jack-O-Lantern

You didn’t think I’d let a Halloween go by without making a costume or two – or three did you? Lane decided that this year she wanted to be a mermaid. Gah! Really? Mermaid? What to do? Hmmm… I thought about it for a long time and realized that anything I came up with would be impossible to walk in. What all else fails, go to the Fabric store and see if they have a pattern. And they did! (Simplicity 4043 in case you wanted to know.) So I made matching mommy/daughter mermaid costumes.

Logan wanted to be a pumpkin.  Much easier. I just took the bee costume pattern from when he was two and enlarged it (and turned it orange of course!) I even let Logan design his own Jack-o-Lantern face.

Yes, we have a cyclops pumpkin.  Woo!
