100% Dad-Made Costume Reveal!

We've watched Charlie Brown Halloween a lot this month. 

So much so that when I was taking a walk with Collin and he said to me 
"If you try to hold my hand I'll slug you!"

And Lydia decided she wanted to dress as a ghost this Halloween.


Great! How simple. A sheet with two holes.

But Shane had other ideas. 

"Natalie, can you buy me some black yarn and a yarn needle?"

Um, ok.



Two nights of hand stitching while watching 30 Rock.....



And we have this. Pretty much the coolest ghost costume I've ever seen.



He sewed in a pair of lensless glasses to make sure the sheet stays in place. 



The mouth opens in case Lydia wanted to snack on candy.

Yea. My husband is a genius. 



I was in charge of Collin's costume. It's pretty cute too. 
I spent a lot of time on it. 
If by spending a lot of time you mean finding it at a yard sale last summer and borrowing the hat from my mom's dress up box.


Cowboy watch out! Behind you!!!!!


AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!


Even the creator is frightened!

(Shane, you rock.)
