What Time Is It?

Yesterday was a very happy Halloween.
I dressed the doggies up as insects.
I had plans to make their costumes, 
but with making Brad's costume, my costume and tons of Halloween orders, 
I just didn't have time.

Plus, when I saw these insect costumes, 
I knew they would work perfectly with my filthy creatures.
What is that pinkish huh in every picture?
Just me..
You see.. after I cried and moped most of the day,
I finally got up, and put a smile on my face.
As well as make up.
I put on blush, pink lip stick, pink eyeshadow and lots of pink sparkles.
I put on a pink dress, a pink wig, and a big gold crown.
Can you guess who I was?!
Maybe this will help.
Brad and I went as:
Princess Bubblegum, and Finn The Human
From Adventure Time!
If you don't know this show, you really should look it up.
 I made my crown, my dress. 
Brad's hat, and his backpack.
After pictures we packed the little bugs in the car and went to my parents house for some pizza..
and more ADVENTURE.
 I've got a pretty cool family.
My little brother Joe dressed up as Jake the stretchy dog.
My older sister Kate dressed up as the vampire/bass playing Marceline.
Eric went as the Princess napping Ice King.

 Charlie loved to be involved.
We then headed to the local Walmart for some snacks and games.
And my eternal search for a plush Simba Backpack.
Anyone have any ideas?! I've searched just about everywhere!
After the store we headed for Brad's Mom's house, 
where I royally beat everyone in scrabble. 

I answered the door for the Tick-or-Treaters.
Little boys told me I was pretty.
I decided I want to have a little human child one day to dress up and take Trick-Or-Treating. 
(And call me pretty.)
I also decided I want a girl doggie next.
To dress up in ruffly dresses, pearly collars and treat like my very own princess.

So our Halloween wasn't the most eventful.
We didn't go to parties and dance. 
But we sure had an adventurous time.

  16. So i'm super late to this party, but I was going back through your posts (btw <3 your blog~found you cause you followed me on Twitter (Yay!(Inception))) Don't know if you found an answer to your lack of Simba backpack, but I was wondering if you could just take a stuffed Simba like in your pic, remove the stuffing, add straps and maybe line him to make him into a backpack. Love the costumes! Wish I had cool people to hang out with on Halloween :C lol

    1. I actually used this tutorial for the main part of the dress. The rest was pleating, and fabric glue!
