I really enjoy figuring out Halloween costumes with my kiddos. This year we wanted to reuse New Fish's dance costume from her recital so she decided to add wings and a crown to make herself a fairy princess. Red Fish had a vision of being a thunderstorm. This took some serious thinking. I tried to make her a tutu with raindrops and my mom sewed her a unitard that looked like electrical activity. Then we added lights and even had sound effects. It was probably the biggest effort I have made on a costume yet. It was very fun to make her vision come true because she has had a lot to deal with lately.
We went to my mother in law's Halloween concert and trunk or treat and it was the perfect venue to test out the new costumes.
