The finishing touches were put on the gladiator boots today and the pattern pieces were finally folded and tucked back into their proper envelopes; another costume sewing season has come to a close.
And, I am thrilled.
This year's costumes were fairly time consuming and I decided to take a 2 week break in October to take the kids to Virginia so I really felt under the gun to get the last costume finished on time.
And then, after all that, the most commented costume of the night? Jacob and his banana. The one that we spent 10 minutes of online searching, typed in a few numbers and then waited for it to show up. Every year I say, "next year I'm just going to buy them" and then somehow I decide to make them. But, next year....
Strawberry Shortcake & Raspberry Tart
Banana (who felt like he should spend his pre-candy time on the computer and I thought it was too hilarious looking to pass on a picture)
And all my costumed creatures together.
And now I need to go inspect their candy to check for the poison laced apples. You know, the ones our parents had to check for too.
