50's Halloween!!

I was so surprised when I was able to convince all my children to dress thematically this Halloween! It started with Megan...she wanted to dress in a 50's outfit, and when Amelia saw the picture she wanted a skirt too (originally she wanted to be a fairy), then of course, Anna was on board as soon as she found out that Amelia and Megan wanted the same costume (originally she wanted to be a Chef). Zachary was a little bit more of a challenge...he really wanted to be a karate guy, but I told him that I could only find a karate outfit at a karate store and it would cost way too much, so by default he chose to join the group! :) I wish Zachary's jacket was leather, but I really didn't want to buy a jacket just for Halloween!

A leather jacket would have been cool, but I agree that buying a leather jacket for an 8 year old just for Halloween would have been carrying a good idea WAY TOO FAR :)

Individually they are adorable! And the effect of the group is spooktacular.

How clever and what a cute picture it makes. I'll have to think of something like that next year.

I also want to know if you sewed those skirts. So cute! How come you got the kids who will dress in theme? Claire was Dorothy this year and of course you can guess what I wanted everyone else to be. (scarecrow, tin man, lion, wicked witch, Glinda, etc.) Instead we had... a mad scientist (Joseph), Jar Jar Binks (John), a Smarty Pants (Haley), a pirate (Hannah) and an army girl (Allyson.) And I don't think I took a single picture.
