My son is only 7 months old, but there's no way I could let one of my favorite holidays slip by the wayside just because he isn't old enough to walk, let alone trick or treat! And seeing as how he's a baby and can't pick out his costume, we went as Rarity and Spike from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!!

I was Rarity, of course. I bought a white dress on sale and matched it with some aqua colored heels I had in the closet (in the picture I had switched to flats-- my feet were dying!). Instead of trying to pin a cutie mark in the appropriate place, I made a necklace out of seed beads and wire. I glued them with a layer of mogpog so I could write the details on with a sharpie.

For my son's costume I purchased a girl's purple jacket (Who knew there weren't any purple jackets for boys?) and stitched on the spikes, ear flaps, and belly scales. Underneath is a white onesie that says "Rarity" with a few hearts around it. He wore those with just a pair of jeans and some lime green socks.

The dog in the bottom right corner is my Sheltie, Ruby. She was dressed up as Rainbow Dash, but by the time we took this picture she had decided it had to go. This is the only one I have of her in the full costume-- I found out at the last minute about a dog party at the park, so I whipped this up with some left over felt from a previous project and glued some feathers to a barrette for her "mane".

I also dyed my hair purple especially for this costume-- I've always wanted to do it but I was scared it would turn out SUPER purple and I'd hate it, but it turned out lovely. My hair is usually light brown, and this is a huge change for me. I love it!! I made the horn and ears out of felt and just clipped them in after curling my hair.

I already have plans for next Halloween for this little bugger. Thanks for looking!

Good to hear your baby enjoyed his very first Halloween. I've been looking for some Halloween costume ideas and your post really helped. I'm pretty sure my baby will also enjoy his Halloween this year.
