Halloween 2018

As the kids get older, it seems like we end up with more and more events and activities leading up to Halloween.  Roman's birthday is the 29th so adding that into everything we have going on and our heads are spinning!  This year we had Trunk or Treat at Roman and Callie's preschool on Monday followed by Trick or Treat at Loyal's school on Tuesday.  There were themes to both (for me at least!) so that made for 3 days straight of dressing up!

My Trolls theme for Trunk or Treat called for a pretty accurate costume and really fun make up.  I had so much fun with this one!  I made my entire costume, along with all the props for my trunk, and I love how it turned out.  Poppy was a HUGE hit amongst all of the little kids!

The theme for Loyal's Trick or Treat at school was story book characters.  Right off the bat he said he wanted to go as The Three Little Pigs!  Aside from being so proud of him for coming up with something on his own, I thought it was such a cute idea and so easy with having 3 little kids to be the three little pigs!
I couldn't sit this one out, of course, because what's the three little pigs without the big bad wolf?!
I had so much fun with this look!!!  We had already bought Halloween costumes so I didn't want to put much money into another round of costumes so everything here was DIY'd!  For my look, I wanted the focus to be in the make up with a little bit of fur accent.  I love how it turned out and the boys thought it was so cool.  I wonder how long I can get away with this kind of stuff before they're mortified by it?! LOL
To answer a few of the questions that I got on Instagram...
I glued over the ends of my eyebrows with an Elmer's Glue Stick and then covered it with foundation once it dried.
I used the Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette for pretty much everything.
The dark shading around my face was with an old powder eye brow fill.  Worked great!

And now for the night of Halloween!
We really wanted to make this about the kids.  There has been so much hustle and bustle lately so we put them in their costumes that they picked out and just did the neighborhood thing.  All the neighbors gathered out in the yards and pre-gamed with pizza, my white chicken chili and s'mores while we waited for the sun to go down.  My family came over, the kids ran around with the most excitement and we all had such a great time!  I didn't take many pictures because Halloween night was a night for us to live in the moment and it couldn't have been more perfect.
Loyal picked Iron Man which was a solid choice for him.  Roman threw us a curve ball after months of taking about nothing other than being a Ninjago Lego for Halloween and instead went with a classic pirate.  And last but certainly not least, we have a Frozen obsessed Elsa who wore her costume for 3 days straight and pitched a MEGA fit when the time came to take it off and change into pj's.  Fun times!
Hope everyone had a safe a fun Halloween! Xo
