halloween costumes, gothic makeup, frozen stuff…..(its all inclusive)

(I was sent these halloween costumes to review. all opinions are my own)

 

You know. A few years ago…I LOVED making my kids halloween costumes. I loved shopping for the fabric and spending all day trying to give my kids exactly what they wanted.

 

But as life has gone on…and my kids have gotten bigger…and pickier…and i’ve gotten busier….I have to say…I LOVE just going and buying some costumes! It takes off so much stress!!! And my FAVORITE place to buy them…is at Halloween Costumes.com

first up: my son picked THOR!!! (thor with a haircut)

THOR halloween costume

you can actually get a thor hammer at halloween costumes. com…but we already had one I made for my son using THIS tutorial thor hammer diy

The costume is awesome! my son LOVES superheros (and thor is the hottest avenger imho) When we took pictures it was a little chilly…and my son was totally warm in this (which is good cause we live in Idaho and October in Idaho is buttchilling cold.) So I know this padded muscle suit will keep him toasty as he scrounges house to house for candy!

I also love that the cape is removable

I walk you through it here: 

and then rat your hair and add some cobwebs!

and last but not least…..FROZEN cute elsa dress from frozen Okay…this one was hands down the daughters favorite. Let it go has been played repeatably and daily in this house (whoever taught her the repeat button on her cd player is dead to me)

She was so excited. I’m pretty sure she would sleep in this if I would let her! It has a fun slit (“just like the movie mom!”) pretty sparkles on the sleeves and an elsa brooch on the front.
frozen costumes

I added a side braid—her hair is shorter than elsa’s…and if I had just done a braid on the side all the pieces would have fallen out…I then added some fun snowflakes clips…
