Halloween 2011

 Another Halloween!  Most people think of their year in terms of January through December.  I measure mine from Halloween to Halloween.  You can see last years post here.

 This year I had two costumes.  My sister in law, Shelsea had her birthday earlier this week so we went out dancing.  I went as Pippi Longstocking and she was Batgirl!


For trick or treating, I went as Raggedy Anne, my husband went as Waldo's doppelganger, Bailey wanted to be "a vampire so scary it scares me" (his words, not mine) and Silas was Yoda.


I got my Raggedy Anne costume from Nobody's Baby (Facebook link).  They're a local vintage shop that also rents costumes.  They're amazing.  I found the Waldo shirt at Old Navy on clearance.  Since it's grey and red we thought he would be one of the many Waldo doppelgangers that you find in the book.  Close, but no cigar sort of thing.  I knit his hat with some worsted wool yarn I had in just a couple of hours. Glasses and cane came from Nobody's Baby.


Bailey's vampire costume was easy.  We had the suit and he borrowed the cape from a friend.  We gave him some scary make-up.


Silas' Yoda costume was a lot of fun.  I used the Felted Baby Yoda Hat by Sunshyne Leland.  I made his robe out of fleece just sort of making it up as I went along.


Our pumpkins.


Happy Halloween!  See you next year!
