We meddling kids in the Mystery Gang would like to wish you all a very Happy Halloween!!
Our costume ideas this year all started with this little girl. She currently has an crazy obsession with Scooby Doo. You'll remember that her birthday party was Scobby Doo themed this year. She decided months ago that she wanted to be Daphne this year.
I used the Simplicity 2437 pattern to make her Daphne dress. I just added length to make it a dress & lengthened the sleeves as well. We found the boots at a thrift store for $4.00 & this girl was in heaven in that long red wig! So cute!
So it was decided that if Sadie was going to be Daphne, then Claire wanted to be Velma. Jinkies!
I made her skirt & turtleneck without any patterns. I had trouble finding jersey knit fabric in the right color of orange & so I ended up buying a mens t-shirt on clearance (set me back $.60) from a discount store & cutting my pieces from that. I could not find knee high socks for her, so we dyed a pair of little boy crew socks orange & then cut the heels out of & sewed back together.
Claire didn't want anything to do with this wig for the longest time. We were worried that she wouldn't wear it & that was bumming us out because we knew she would look so cute in it. But once Sadie's costume was all made & she was prancing around the house in her dress & wig, Claire was ready to wear hers too! Yay! Isn't she the cutest thing? It kills me how cute she looks as "Belma"!!
Sadie & Claire won Cutest Costumes at our church Halloween party. :)
The girls wanted Dylan to be Shaggy (Zoinks!) & then couldn't decide if I should be Scooby or Fred. We finally decided on Fred. It was much more doable. There was no way I was going to buy an adult Scooby Doo costume. Ha ha.
We have gone to different church parties the past 2 nights. The girls have had a blast! And I won't lie, it was super fun to be a part of a group costume theme. We've gotten our fill of candy & are just going to hang out with family & relax tonight. The girls have had so much fun. I hope they look back & know that their momma tried to get their costumes just right because I love them so much.
I hope you all have a wonderfully fun & spooky Halloween!! :)
