So more just an entry to show off the cute.. as there are some truly amazing costumes on here...but it is oldschool duct tape and homemade Halloween crafty goodness. Smiley

The doods were Ghostbusters this year.  We just made plain tan jumpsuits and sewed on a patch.  I used those cheap nylon sack back pack things with a cereal box inside as their proton packs and just adorned it with some gear looking things and gauges, along with some flashing tubey lights (made for decorating your bike).  You can't tell from the pictures very well but on Halloween I actually attached a candy chute (furnace ducting) to the top so they could just put their hand up near the back of their ear and drop the candy into the tubing/chute and use it as their trick or treat bag.  I think I will try to incorporate this concept into every costume from here on out.. it worked great!  

Oh I also used a silly string gun and put a pringles can around it to make it look less gun-like and made it their ectoplasm shooters that shot out green silly string.

his friend is holding it backwards so you can't see the gauges on the other side but there's a glow in the dark tube thing on the top.

Oh my goodness! This is so cute!! I really need an excuse to dress my boys up now! We dont have Halloween here, so I may have to have a costume party just so I can copy your idea. Really great! I love it.

Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually who are you not to be?

We are all meant to shine.
