When I was growing up (back in the dark ages), we never bought Halloween outfits. We always made our own. This year, that's the path we traveled. Matter of fact, Nikolai did not decide to be a zombie until last night in church!
Here's my boys for Halloween - a zombie and a hippie!
Nikolai cut his outfit himself. He made the zigzag cuts for his pants and shirt. The shirt was too little for him and the jeans were in the worn out, play pants pile. His cost? 0$!! We had everything on hand for his outfit. He even used my make-up for his face. This suits him, don't you think? He was careful NOT to smile because, "Mom, zombies do NOT smile!"
Deniska wanted to be a hippie, a love child. Now, I do admit that we paid a little for his wig and glasses but not much - under $5. He had tie-died his t shirt at a birthday party back in August. He is very proud of his outfit.This suits him as well. He was born about 40 years too late!
Since this was all made with supplies on hand, I am linking to Heidi's Make Do and Mend Monday!
Happy "Home-made" Halloween everyone!!
