The Corner of Quirky & Kinky

I love Halloween, but I’ll be honest, I don’t usually go above and beyond. I appreciate it when other people do, but I’m not much of a decorator or party thrower. It’s just not my bag. We decorate a little. And carve pumpkins – almost always with my sister, Cait. And bake cookies and pumpkin seeds.

I do, however, love a good costume. And I love making a good costume. It’s kind of like a puzzle as I try to get something to look as close to a cartoon or movie as I can in real life. Often, there’s no real pattern – just a lot of eyeballing.

But here are a few homemade costumes – at least the ones I had scanned already. For some reason, there are more pictures of Corwin in costume than Killian – mostly just the luck of the scan.

Look! I’m the Mother of Dragon – Killian at about 2 years.

“Days…weeks…months…years…who knows,”  says Eeyore Corwin. (6 mos)

 Bet you didn’t know that Blue carried a ninja sword, huh?  Corwin at about 2ish.

Corwin in his Captain Kitty costume – to match his favorite stuffed animal, Captain Kitty. (4 yrs)

Killian in his Harry Potter robes that I made, and the HP red sweater that Grammy made – full disclosure: neither one of us made the Sorting Hat.

Corwin in his Jawa costume – Captain Kitty had a matching one.

And Corwin in his Stormtrooper costume.

So…what are some of your favorite Halloween traditions? Got any favorite costumes?
