Halloween Costumes--the Photos

As promised, here are more photos of our costumes. I made them both (details at the end, if you are interested). If you aren't familiar with it, I'm the house from the movie Up.
Halloween is kind of a big deal at my office, and I look forward to it all year. They even set up a little photo booth for us to all get our pictures done.
My hair quickly became staticky. I only have this photo for now.

For the house I carved and taped together boxes, painted it with cheap craft paint, and drew on the siding and shingles with a marker.
For the peacock, I got the tights at Gymboree, the onesie at Old Navy, and the rest of the supplies at Hobby Lobby. (I'm kind of obsessed with these tights. She will be wearing them a lot this winter.) Pin It

how did you do the back of the house?

Christy said...

Anonymous—for the back of the house I just looked at a ton of photos and images from the movie and copied what I saw. I put a slit in the roof and tied a ribbon through it which is where all the balloons tied onto (I fed them through the inside of the box house so they looked like they were coming from inside.)

Frances Vawter said...

People who are blessed with a baby girl recently should buy newborn girl coming home outfit. For baby boys, you can consider baby boy home outfit through the online platform for decreasing the time-consumption, efforts, and the travel cost.
