Although we don’t celebrate Halloween, I do think that it’s the perfect day to dress up as something you’re not, and get away with it! So, for fun, I made each of the kids an outfit!
Brianna in her Amish girl outfit!
A couple other views of her outfit.
I made her outfit from scratch. I sewed the dress, and the bonnet I made using black fabric, a piece of cereal box (cut out) to go inside the visor for structure, and a glue gun to glue it together, as well as some stitching on the ties.
Here’s Silas. His outfit is Cloud from the game Final Fantasy VII. Silas doesn’t play the game, but he likes this character because he has a HUGE sword.
Silas’ outfit is made of: winter boots, black dress pants, 3 black belts, a long-sleeved sweater (that was getting too small on him) with one sleeve cut off, a sleeveless black t-shirt, a knee pad (for the shoulder pad), a pair of sunglasses, some hairspray for hair spikes, and a toy sword with cardboard and duct tape wrapped around it to make it HUGE!
It was fun to make the costumes from scratch, and the kids had fun with them, except I don’t think Brianna had any clue what she was actually wearing!
