Halloween costumes 2010, part 2

I already shared Sage's costume in the Part 1 post. Today, I thought I'd share Austin & Jonah's costumes.

Once again, I was inspired by this link from Fiskars to make their Halloween costumes.

I loved that their ideas stemmed from using already made clothing and adding to it. So much easier (& cheaper!) than starting from scratch!

For the boys, I lucked out at the Thrift Store and found a black hoodie for Austin and a grey one for Jonah. A trip to Michael's took care of the felt (both regular and the stiff kind) and after a little bit of cutting, pinning and sewing, I ended up with these:



Jonah is a grey shark and Austin is a killer whale. Very easy and comfy to wear, too.

Thanks for looking!

very very cute!!! I love these ideas...I got Lucas' brown hoodie from the thrift shop too, and I already had a ton of felt, so i only spent about $3.00 total on his outfit!!! You can't beat that, plus they look unique:):) Have a great Halloween weekend!
