Halloween Costumes 2012

I don't know why I do this to myself every year. I want to make the kids costumes and then I go crazy making them. Even though I started in September. So here they are.

Julian wanted to be a Red Ninjago character.  He showed me a minifig with the golden dragon and told me that he wanted to look just like him, sword and everything. So here you go. Except that it only took a few minutes for him to break the sword. I knew I should have put a wooden brace in there.

 

Here is my Mermaid. She has loved Ariel for so long.  And she wanted to red hair but I didn't think that I had enough time to make a wig so we sprayed her hair instead. Just the top and down her back. I wanted to keep her hair that was touching her clothes to remain color free since it does rub off. The tail is a skirt so that she can walk and run without any problems.

 

And my youngest. I thought it would be a fab idea to have the girl go as Flounder since I have Ariel anyways. I looked on line for inspiration and saw the costume for Flounder in the Broadway production. I also sprayed her hair in light blue with Dark Blue streaks. I then painted her forehead yellow with blue stripes there. I didn't want anything around her face or mouth since she would be eating in this costume.

 

Let me know what you think.

Here comes Christmas
