I wanted to be something decently warm, not scary (dont want to scare my 2.5 year old!) and that made use of my preggo belly. After months of looking for something online I came up with my own idea  Cheesy The total cost for the costume was less than $10 since I already had the leggings, top and shoes. The octopus is sewn to the shirt and is made out of green velour. I glued on the facial features, because I am lazy and my daughter was "helping" me. I wish I got more action shots (I have video) because the legs moved when I walked. I was considering doing a sea themed hat or face paint but ran out of time.
