Sugar, spice, and everything nice… these were the ingredients chosen to create the perfect Halloween costumes! This year, we decided to go as the Powerpuff Girls, and I’m very pleased with how everything turned out!
Almost everything we used was either purchased from the thrift store or was something we already had at home. The only exception was Michael’s lab coat, which isn’t very easy to find second-hand.
We started the day off with some fun goodie bags Had and I had whipped up the night before for her friends at school. She was so excited to hand them out, and even got a couple treats in return!
Had was actually the one who decided who each of us should be; without skipping a beat, she eagerly announced that she would play the part of Bubbles, whereas Riv would be Buttercup, and I would be Blossom.
And I gotta say, I think she made the right choice! She played the part extremely well, and Riv…
I mean, can we just talk about the sass for a minute? This was right after Michael had taken her candy away because she was trying to shove the entire thing in her mouth and was drooling all over the place.
I don’t blame her, though, because she is teething after all!
As long as she has her snacks, she’s all smiles!
Love these goobers! They were literally running around from house to house. Well, Had was doing it to get as much candy as she possibly could, but Riv on the other hand was running to all the houses we weren’t going to. Aka the ones with the lights off, the ones across the street, or the ones we had already gone to.
Maybe next year she’ll get the hang of it…
And we’re off to save the day! So our entire costumes were pretty simple: three big thrifted T-shirts for the dresses, some white shirts and sweatshirts underneath, some black fabric for the waist (cut from a big shirt from the thrift store), and then just some black leggings we had and some Mary Janes.
My hair bow was made from construction paper and cardboard and Had’s Octi was just one of those pumpkin buckets covered in purple tissue paper. The entirety of our costumes took a night to complete, and they were extremely easy!
And that just left…
The professor! Michael’s costume consisted of a white collared shirt, an old tie, some black pants and shoes, and the lab coat. We just added some pens for his little pocket, and the pipe he made extremely last minute (as in 5 minutes before we went out the door) out of a wine cork and a cake pop stick. Colored in with permanent marker. I gotta give him some creativity points for that one!
All in all, it was a great Halloween and the girls had a blast trick or treating with their cousins and I can’t wait to start brainstorming for next year’s costumes…
What did you all dress up as?
