Halloween Through The Years

Tuesday, October 30, 2018

Happy Halloween Eve!!!

I thought it would be fun to share our costumes through the years. We make all of our own costumes and I've become quite proud of our creations. This is Tolar's absolute favorite holiday and it has also become Kendall's favorite. In full disclosure, until I met Tolar I never really celebrated it because I do not like anything scary. However, once Kendall was born and we decided to dress in theme for our costumes, I have developed a love for Halloween. I even remarked this year that I love how creative we are becoming and I look forward to the time that Tolar and I spend putting the finishing touches on the costumes.

I do have to give credit where credit is due. My mom has helped us create some of these costumes due to her wonderful sewing skills and we are so thankful. She luckily has taught me some sewing knowledge and thanks to being a theatre major in college I picked up even more. Maybe next year I will actually get my sewing machine set up in our house so I don't have to bother my mother.

It is fun to look back and remember the awesome times we had. It is also fun to see how my photography and staging have improved over the years.

2013 - Kendall's first Halloween
Super Mom, Diaper Decimator and Captain Chaos
All of these costumes were created on the fly, using items we had around our house.

2014 - Stick Figure
This was a big transition year for us, having just moved away from DC. So Kendall was the only one who dressed up.

2015 - The Flintstones
With a daughter who has bright red hair, you HAVE to dress her up as Pebbles, right? So Tolar and I joined the fun as Wilma and Fred. Mine and Kendall's costumes were made out of blankets and Tolar's was made out of fabric we purchased and pinned together. Also, what a perfect excuse to wear my leopard print booties!

2016 - An Owl and her Tootsie Roll Pops
This owl costume I am most proud of because I cut out every single feather you see. It was a labor of love to create this for our daughter. Our Tootsie Roll Pops took us almost all day to create!
