  1. Halloween
    :pumpkin: We hit our average of 15 kids tonight but this year the trick or treaters were all over 12 yrs old. (Hard to give away the McDonald's coupons I had purchased) I seemed to have over bought on the candy and will need to mail the coupons to friends with children under 12 yrs old. Lucky...

    was featured in a slideshow made by Lady Gaga that's posted on her Facebook fan page! It's also on her Twitter. :D Twitter "I made a quick slideshow of some of the Gagaween costumes I found! There's so many! I love you! " I'm at 5:45 of the slideshow if you want to jump ahead. I'm so GIDDY!

    I didn't know where else to post this... We won a 100 dollar gift card to bestbuy this weekend. We went to TGIFridays to grab a couple beers and munch on their "free appitizers if you're wearing a costume" promotion. The bar was pretty dead at 11:00 and there were only about 5 people in...

    Who has their costume already? It's 10 days till Halloween and I AM SO EXCITED! I have everything except for the wig, the fake nails, the makeup and the prop. I have almost all of the materials for the prop, which will be my disco stick: Mine will be made with ColorFill (or I might forgo the...
  5. Halloween
    This is a bit of a rant, so I hope you excuse my self-pity. I don't know if it's because we live in a small city or because my expectations are out of whack, but our "frugal" costume ideas are, well, not frugal at all. The kids want to be Mario and Luigi this year. They are all about the video...

    As a child....what is the best costume that you can remember having as a child on Halloween? Most of mine were hand-made by my mother...at 4 I went as Little Red Riding Hood...when I was 9 I went as a cat and at 13 I went as Peter Criss (then drummer for the rock group KISS) -I did that one...
  7. Halloween
    I'm still trying to decide on a costume this year. I've come to the conclusion I want to be a movie character. My boyfriend has decided that he will be Rufio from the movie Hook. I think it's an awesome idea because I've never seen someone dress up like that before. I will be making this costume...
  8. Halloween
    Rather than spending $20-30 on a one-time wear costume for our littlest ones, the mommy's group that I am in is holding a 'costume swap'. We all posted our various costumes and accessories on our message board and have then got to pick 'new' costumes for the kids. At no cost. So far, there...

    Last year I asked for help for halloween costume ideas and I got some great ideas. Here I am asking again. :) I don't want to cut or ruin anything though. I'm going to go out to buy accessories this year but I deffinately don't want to fork over big bucks for a whole costume. Here is a list of...
  10. Halloween
    I'm trying to think of a good costume idea for Gavin. His birthday is January 3rd, so he will be almost 2. He doesn't watch TV, so he isn't into any characters or anything. Last year he was a dragon....ideas anyone?
  11. For Sale or Trade
    I am interested in making a trade for various vintage costume jewelry(1970's and older) in good condition, no broken pieces. I have quite a few Avon bottles and decanters from the 1980's. All the avon products have never been used or opened.Most are boxed gift sets. If you have the jewelry I...
  12. Halloween
    I'm not sure if this is the place to ask but here goes. My boyfriend and I are going to a party for halloween and it was kind of sprung on us last minute so here I am scrambling for a costume idea. My boyfriend suggested just buying costumes but I'd rather make one if possible. I wouldn't mind...
  13. Sewing
    She really wanted to be a unicorn, but there weren't any cheap patterns for one. I used a cat costume pattern and modified it. The dress is the cat pattern, the pants are from a pajama pattern, I modified the cat ears to turn them into horsey looking ears, the mane and tail and horn are all my...

  16. Secondhand Shopping
    Today I went looking for old clothes, fabric, etc. to make costumes for a school project for my students. I teach special ed, and there are a few students whom I know their families do not have the resources to make costumes for this project. One was a civil war nurse costume. I got a black...
  17. Halloween
    With money being tight and time tight also (my mother in law usually makes our costumes but my sister in law is getting married in a month and we all just don't have the time this year she is able to make my little princess a princess dress) but I found a football jersey at Salvation Army of my...
  18. Halloween
    It's three weeks from tomorrow! I figured I'd beat the rush this year and get my costume early. I picked it up the other day along with the kids' outfits. I get to be a pirate wench (complete with Hush Puppies boots that I score for $40 at a clearance shoe warehouse store) and the only thing I...
