This year for Halloween, after much debate, we decided to go with Toy Story! We figured this is probably the last Halloween where we get to decide what Mason will be so we had a big debate about doing Wreck it Ralph, Breaking Bad or Toy Story. Don’t you think Mason would make an amazing Walter White?! Anyways, we decided on Toy Story and I’m so glad we did!
I thought it would be more fun to make these costumes this year so I planned out a Woody, Jessie and a really simple Buzz costume for the three of us to wear on Halloween.
- Cowprint Vest & Bandana from Etsy Shop, Vics Love
- Yellow long sleeve shirt from Old Navy
- Boots from Old Navy - I didn’t go with the cowboy boots because I wanted something he could wear a lot this winter
- Woody Hat and Belt from Amazon
- gold glitter foam sheet (to make sheriff star)
- Sharpie (to write ANDY) on the bottom of his shoe
Woody was really an easy costume that took very little creativity or work… especially with a cute baby around! Anyone can make this happen!
Chad was less than thrilled to jump into a full-on Buzz costume with wings and a skin-tight purple hood (bummer… I know…) so after a lot of digging, I found this hoodie online:
So that was easy!
She needed some work. I really didn’t want to get the onesie-costume from the store so I figured it out on my own…
- White button down shirt
- Yellow Felt
- Cow-print Felt or Fabric (I found the Felt at Michael’s)
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Red sequins (Walmart)
I cut out the cow-print felt to lay on top of my jeans and just glued them on with my glue gun (these are VERY cheap jeans, don’t worry)
Then for the shirt, I cut out the yellow felt for the shirt and cuffs and then added the red sequins. Sequins just make everything THAT much better… am I right?!
The sleeves were super easy – I just cut the felt sheet in half and glued each half to each sleeve and then decorated with more sequins!
I did grab some yellow ribbon for my hair and the Jessie hat but that’s about it! It was really easy to make, no sewing necessary – just some good glue gun skills!
So tomorrow, Mason’s school has a Halloween event where his class will visit the neighboring condo building to go Trick-or-Treating! I’m so excited! I took the morning off and am going to volunteer with getting the kiddos get into their costumes and Trick-or-Treating! I am debating whether to wear my costume to work or not… I usually do but it will be hard to top the pregnant Pooh-bear that I did October 2011. Last year I just used Halloween as an excuse to wear my new pajamas…
Either way, I’m definitely dressing up tomorrow night! We are going to get together with some neighbors, pass out candy and rank the neighborhood costumes this year!
Stay tuned and Happy Cabbage Night!
