With Halloween so close I’ve been super busy planning the kids’ costumes & creating custom party decor for the big day. Packard decided he wanted to be a red ninjago ninja.

Packard on his 5th birthday. He was so excited to get this costume, he’s decided that’s what he’ll be for Halloween.

This was super easy, as he got this costume for his birthday. Trianiti finally figured out what she wanted to be; Jigsaw from the movie Saw. I was able to get all of her costume necessities off of Ebay: Kids suit, stripe leggings, red bow tie & a black skirt.

On Tuesday (10/24) Trianiti decides to tell me she needs something else for school for Friday (10/27). They’re allowed to wear costumes, but no face makeup. With the Jigsaw costume heavily relying on the makeup to achieve the look, no one will know what/who she is and at 11 this is VERY important. Cue the fast acting mom solutions. We will turn her Jigsaw costume into Colonel Sanders with a few purchased items off of Amazon. Thank goodness for amazon prime! Red Apron, Thick rimmed glasses, a white mustache, and white hair paint. We used the black pants, white shirt and red bowtie we have on hand from the Jigsaw costume. Tuesday night we ran out to KFC to grab a bucket of chicken for dinner to finish off the look.

I used my Shop our cutting machine collection at Cricut.com” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>cricut to design a decal for the front of the apron, and then used my View our most popular products at Cricut.com” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>heat press to press the iron on to the apron. In all I think the last-minute costume change was a success, we’ll see what she says when she gets home from school. Hopefully everyone LOVES her new look.
