Halloween is not my favorite holiday, honestly. When I was a kid, my mom would make us super-elaborate costumes, but the older we got the less we cared, and we all became unfestive. But for the sake of Ever having the fullest childhood possible, I decided to dress up for her first Halloween.
We had been brainstorming for weeks about a family costume, but nothing seemed right. Then it came to me. A magician, his assistant, and the rabbit. It was perfect. So original. Never been done before. Or so I thought. One Pinterest search later and that theory was proven wrong. Regardless, that's what we were gonna be.
I made Ever's costume out of a white onesie. I sewed on a piece of felt in the shape of a heart as the belly, and a cotton tail that I got at Parrty City. The ears were the hard part. Aside from the fact that she kept pulling them off, if she happened to leave them on, the ears were too heavy and they kept falling off her 5th percentile sized head. So I thought, hey! I'll glue one of her many headbands to it and viola! They stayed on her head, and she now looked like a girl bunny.
The makeup was even harder than the ears because she HATES when anything touches her face, especially her nose. And I didn't bother buying costume makeup because what could costume makeup do that eyeliner and lipstick couldn't? Eventually, I managed to draw on some whiskers and a nose (thanks to the distraction of puffs), and I didn't even care how horrible it looked.
I dressed up as the magician for some pictures we took for a blog post I did for Gugu Guru on baby wearing workouts you can do while trick or treating. I'll be sharing the blog soon.
We got all dressed up for a family birthday/costume party, and we thankfully had enough light to snap a few photos first.
