This Halloween was kind of significant for our family. This was the first Halloween Daniel and I spent together. (Our 1st I was at a party, our 2nd he was in BMT) It was the first Halloween Daniel spent with Gracie, and thus it was our first Halloween as a family. :)
I can't let meaning like that go to waste so I wanted to make the most out of it. Daniel immediately came out of the gate wanting us all to be Batman. I wasn't really having that, so I said "why don't just you and Gracie go. That would be so sweet." He was for that. So we set out to find a costume for Gracie. Sad to say they had NONE in her size and they were all kind of...lame. So I made her costume instead.
|This is what the top looked like before I added the detail puffed paint. The silky part was where her belt went so it wouldn't irritate her belly when her shirt pulled up.|
I got her Batman costume ready one day before Halloween because Daniel wanted to enter into the costume contest on base. And surprise! THEY WON!
|I love her little heart socks poking out.|
|Yes, I made Batarangs for her to hold. haha!|
|I bought her an actual utility belt, but Daniel wore it on actual Halloween. I wasn't stoked about the|
belt I made her, the fabric just whooped my butt. But Daniel liked it better so he won that argument lol.
|We stopped by Kohls to say "hi" to one of our friends who was working.|
They both turned out cute, I think and we had a good Halloween, complete with mummy pizza
and a scary movie once Grace was in bed.
Hope you all had a great Halloween too!
