Halloween 2015


I did not make the girls costumes this year! Only the jet packs (that double as a trick-or-treat bag!). I love making costumes but only if it's exciting to me and making a white jump suit with patches and buckles, etc. was not appealing especially when I could buy it already made. The helmets, jumpsuits, shoe covers and gloves are from amazon.com

The jet pack is from this Pinterest pin. I had to make it by just looking at what this person had done so I included a photo that tells you what items I used to make them. What's not on the picture is that I used a white primer first then a silver metallic spray paint on the whole thing. I glued everything with a hot glue gun and made cris-crossing straps to keep it on the body out of black elastic.  Also, the box you use has to be wide enough to fit the dyer hose.

The girls would hold up the dryer hose to people handing out candy and they would drop the candy in. It then goes down into the box. Genius huh? Thank you to whoever thought this up!

Love love love the candy collecting jet packs! They're costumes were awesome! The close up pics of the girl's faces capture their very different, individual personalities!
