My DIY Halloween Costume

Now that I am a mom, Halloween became all about finding the perfect costume for my little guy...  I was on the hunt for weeks, and couldn't exactly find what I was looking for in stores, on Amazon, or even ETSY! 

My own mom bought S and his cousin G matching pumpkin costumes, and I ended up going with a monkey with the justification that he was born on the year of the monkey.  Well that, and the fact that he seems to go bananas for anything banana flavoured!

Even after these two sweet attempts, I still knew that somehow he needed to be Sebastian the crab for his first Halloween.  I guess my logic was that in the future he will want to choose his own character, and selecting the fun-loving Disney favourite from The Little Mermaid movie would be highly unlikely!!!

After searching high and low without any luck at all, I decided that the only way left was to hand-make it myself...

Here was my DIY Halloween project:

My Sebastian the crab actually turned out better than I had anticipated, which does tend to happen with these creative processes!  This is the first Halloween costume that I have ever made, and I enjoyed the experience very much.  In the future, I am hoping to look back on this blog post with my son and show him what I created!

Did you have a Spookalicious Halloween with your family, friends, and of course with your students?

We loved giving out candy and seeing our neighbourhood buzzing with children!  Hard to believe that last year at this time my husband and I were handing out treats with our dog Ruby (dressed as superman), waiting eagerly for our little one to join in our family fun!

I can't wait until next year when we can go trick-or-treating together!

  2. Perfect! I agree with them and I think that it is very important to find a suitable topic which engages you to work. I liked your advice "to come back with fresh eyes" because every morning you wake up with a fresh mind and you can bring new ideas to your essay. Of course, you need to see some examples how to write an excellent or stop searching for perfect writers and buy essay on EssayOnTime and it will be a nice idea. Because you need to know certain requirements, tips and restrictions. And step by step you will learn how to do it right and impress everybody.

  4. I want this book to be sort of everything I've live the past months. Something you can read and you can identify to. Something that reminds you a broken girl and how she moves on. But last night, a friend of mine asked me if I really wanted to move one from the boy that sort of inspired me to write Report About Dredge. And I had no idea what to answer. I realized how much I tried to make a hero out my broken story but I just couldn't move on by myself. And now, I'm procrastinating because I can't write anything since that conversation.
