These are no where near as good as the more elaborate costumes on here but I still had a lot of fun making them and maybe someone could use the idea for their own next year. The boys had great ideas for Halloween costumes this year. The idea was all theirs. I'm just glad they wanted to be something scary this year instead of a video game character....we've gone through a lot believe me! The pumpkin head was done with paper mache over a giant punching balloon. I sewed rafia along the inside wrists and the bottom of his shirt so it looked like he was stuffed.

The mummy was made with torn strips of muslin and cheesecloth that had been tea dyed. I hot glued the strips onto a pair of long johns. Luckily I have a skinny little dude becuase it doesn't stretch too well after that lol. He has a creepy crawler bug maker machine so he made scorpions and other creepy crawlies to glue on there.
