I haven't been here for a while as I am trying to get things back to normal sending three pumpkins to school and trying to keep the little one entertained while they are there. Anyways, I am looking for some ideas for Halloween and I thought it might be a good idea to share. We are really into POTC around here so that has been the theme for Halloween for the last 2 years. My costume was store bought because, as usual I did not have time to create anything for myself. Anyways, I hope you have the time to share.

The characters my costumes where based on.

My little Will Turner, even though he claims he is THE Jack Sparrow!

Elizabeth Swann, who told me this year she will have nothing to do with pirates, and Will Turner.

And last but not least my Jack Sparrow and me(don't laugh). My husband really got into this role and won a few Halloween costume contests.
Removed since, in all fairness this is a sewing for kids forum but you can see it in my avatar.

The smurfs idea would be awsome. But I am too tall to be a smurfette. And I dont know if my husband would go for that anymore, even though while we where dating I conviced him to be Buckwheat of the Little Rascals but everyone though he was a troll. LOL!

I handcrafted a strawberry shortcake costume for my daughter about five years ago (it helped that she has curly red hair), complete with custard the cat in a basket and the poofy hat. That same year I created a teenaged mutant ninja turtle costume for my son complete with padded felt shell, nunchuks (he was Michaelangelo), 'turtle hand' gloves and the face mask.

I heart the eighties.

Last year dds were Winnie the Pooh & Piglet.  DH was Christopher Robin.  Given that the only female in WtP is Kanga & I REALLY didn't want to dress up as an animal much less a kangaroo, I was Tinkerbell.

This year dds are going to be Wicket & Ewok village Leia.  DH & I are going to be Han Solo & Death Star Leia.

For the last two years my dd was Minnie Mouse.  I got the fabric on Ebay and used a Simplicity Daisy Kingdom pattern.  The ears were from the Disney store.  I loved this dress, she wants to wear it this year too, but sadly it no longer fits!  Here is a picture from last year, as you can see it is a little bit tight, but we made it fit for a second time Grin
