Costume Collage

This was Kellie's costume for her Halloween soccer practice her Freshman year at the U. We created it with items from the dollar store.

Rachel as a "poor sailor boy" (I think she looks more like a minuteman), Dorothy (she really wanted those red sparkly shoes), a butterfly, and Raggedy Ann

Travis as a blind referee (no disrespect intended), a nerd, and a mummy

Abby as a black cat, a pink witch, and Red-Riding-Hood

Yes, I just figured out how to do a collage in Photoshop. Humor me. :)

Awesome costumes! I wish I had Photoshop, I hear it is fun.

These are all GREAT costumes. Do you (or Kellie) mind if I STEAL the head on a platter idea? I think Wade would LOVE IT!!!

Marianne, feel free. I think the idea originally came from Family Fun magazine.

Too cute! Back before front load washers had regained their popularity we made a front load washer costume out of a box. It was SO cute! I even made a door on the front with clothes sandwiched in view.
I love CUTE Halloween stuff. But, I am seriously not a fan of the yucky costumes. Oh, well. To each her own right?

I stared at that top right photo of Kellie forever trying to figure out how you made her legs disappear! It made the costume that much cooler! Then, I realized it was the top of the photo below it. I'm a little slow this morning!

Lisa, THAT is funny. I didn't even see it myself. I need to perfect the collage-making skills a bit--put a bit of space in between each photo or something. :)

Oh my goodness! These are just too cute! Halloween is so fun! My oldest daughter was born on Halloween! So you can do photoshop. That puts you ahead of me on the learning curve. I'm impressed!

Okay the head on the platter is pretty gross, but the blind ref is really making me laugh. I have two brother in laws who are basketball coaches. They would really get a kick out of that.

I love kid costumes for Halloween. This year, my just-walking one-year-old is going to be Frankenstein (I had to because of how he walks)!
