I am super excited to share the Halloween
costumes that I made for my kiddos this year. I thought a lot about what I
wanted to dress them up like and my son is still young enough to not really
have an opinion on the subject. :) First I considered Thing 1 and Thing 2, then I started thinking
about having them be Woody and Jessie, since my son loves the Toy Story movies
so much (and yes, I started thinking about this
before my little Miss was even born).Ultimately,
the idea to make them Batman and Robin costumes came after my mother-in-law
made my little dove a couple of superhero capes. I had already pinned this cute girl superhero costume idea awhile ago, so from that moment on I
My little dove's costume was really easy; the only thing I had to make was the
Batman logo shirt. I used Cami (of course) to
cut the shape out of Silhouette's heat transfer material. The mask I just
happened to find in a toy aisle at Walmart. I already had everything else.
The costume for little Miss was a bit more
involved. The first thing I did was dye a onesie that I already owned
red, then added the Robin logo which I also made with heat transfer material.
The other main component to the costume is the green tutu, which I made with
two different types of green tulle, and some green mesh. I also bought a small
amount of yellow bathing suit material to make her a simple cape. I used
a large bib as a template for the cape; after all, a cape is basically just a
bib turned backwards. :) I already had her little headband.
