Hello all! Hope Everyone had a wonderful Halloween. Here is my girls in their costumes this year. 

My oldest wanted to be the Saw puppet.  It was very easy! All I did was went to the local Good Will and bought a suit and shirt for her. All I had to do was make the bow tie.  She loved being so creepy! My youngest was the Corpse Bride.  I also bought a vintage wedding dress from the Good Will and reconstructed the whole thing. Bought a white shirt and leggings, dyed them a light aqua blue and painted the arm and leg with fabric paint.  As you can see I used fabric paint on the dress and veil and flowers too.  The wig I bought online.  But all in all I think it turned out pretty good for the both of them. They got a lot of compliments that made them feel extra special.  Seriously though, nothing beats opening the door to a trick or treater in a homemade costume!  At the school Halloween parade I noticed I was always picking out which one were handmade. Anyway.....check em out please!






Please excuse the Playstation mess!

They look great!  I love the costumes, the face paint, and your daughter's wig too.  I'll bet they had a great time.

Scaaaary!   Shocked  They look so cute.  I saw Saw V with my guy last night... super gory.  Afterwards I said I wanted to go home and watch Care Bears.  hahaha    Cheesy

It's funny how spooky the kiddos look in their costumes and make-up... my niece is usually this beautiful little ray of sunshine, but on Halloween - she was a beautifully little ray of SCARY.  haha

Great job!  I always made my kids costumes also...they are 25 and 20 now, but we still dress up.  Last year we won prizes as "Bizzaro World Wizard of Oz"...my daughter was a creepy Dorothy, Husband was a Scary Scare Crow, neighbor was the Tin Man and I was a witch...the pics were pretty cool.

Dude. Those are pretty darn impressive. I love the accuracy of both. Did you do the makeup yourself? I would love a link to the tutorials if you used them. Thanks and awesome job!
