A Sweet Halloween!

This was Maverick’s 2nd Halloween. I love the sweet and innocent costumes while they’re young because it’s only going to be another year or so before Mav starts choosing what HE wants to dress up as! So this year we went for the Oompa Loompa costume! I just love the little crossed suspenders and the big brown buttons! I knew about 4 weeks ago we were going to make him an Oompa Loompa but it was only about a week ago I was at Hobby Lobby buying material and last minute things for his costume! (Typical me!)
What I DID do about 3 weeks prior to Halloween was buy the basics online which were the white stretchy floor length sweats, a brown onesie turtleneck and the white tights/leggings. After we got those in the mail there were only a few adjustments I had to make which were pretty easy and only took a few hours to do! I wanted to do a quick tutorial for the DIY Oompa Loompa Costume so I will give more instructions on that in a different post.
The real kicker to our costumes was the last minute Wonka Bar Costume! I LOVE dressing up and felt bad about not dressing up with Mav. I was laying in bed the night before Halloween thinking how bad I wanted to dress up with him when I got the bright idea to use the leftover fabric from Maverick’s Oompa Loompa Costume and make it into a giant Wonka Bar. Mav woke up about 6:15am which has been sort of the norm lately so I started on the Wonka Bar costume,  I  made a quick Wal Mart run for red and yellow felt and was finished by 10:30am! Very last minute but so worth it! I love the family themed costumes! I even asked Bran before heading to Wal Mart if he wanted to be Charlie Bucket but that was a no-go!
We went Trick or Treating with my sisters and their families in their community development. They served hotdogs in the park and had a costume contest for the kids and the adults! It was pretty great, the kids had a great time and ended up with tons of candy! All in all it was a great Halloween night! We hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween! Now it’s full steam ahead to Thanksgiving and Christmas!
