I wasn't planning another post but this one was just to fun to miss. My Brodster chose Spiderman as his costume this year (after all the Ant Man costumes sold out - grr!) and I've got to say, it totally fits his personality. The Brodster is typically drawn to all funny characters and Spidey is definitely the comedian in the genre.
I think we might have started a new Halloween tradition! Last year, my little guy dressed as Donatello and designed his pumpkin as Michelangelo. This year, he matched again! Yep, this is a trend we want to keep on going.

Every year, I always want to have a costume that very few people will have, but I insist on it being Disney. Do you know how hard it is to decide this? At first, I wanted to be a classic black and white Minnie Mouse (you can see my design here), but I realized I didn't have enough time to figure out the makeup, so I brainstormed for another whole week.

While I would have loved to create a super-complex-out-of-this-world costume, let's get real: I'm still running after a crawler/toddler. I need to be comfy and agile. Then it hit me: I haven't done DisneyLAND yet! My favorite costumes this year have been the food-inspired ones so naturally I went with DOLE WHIP!!! Here is my original sketch:
This costume was inspired by Studio DIY's fro-yo costume earlier this month. I only used the head piece of her tutorial, and made a huge, yellow, fleece, infinity scarf that works as an easy shawl. Everything else is accessories!
The Haunted Mansion is probably the scariest place I will ever visit willingly. I've done Knott's Scary Farm and Universal Studios Hollywood Horror Nights in the past, but it's just not for me. I'm a wuss and completely own it!
Still the home of the 999 happy haunts is so incredibly well done, and very few could match the incredible detailing and craft that went into this evolving attraction. The Portraits mug was inspired by the elevator and is still a favorite in the shop. I recently searched for the actual script of the opening monologue, and I dare you to tell me it doesn't give you chills just by reading it:
