Rafaan and I love a good DIY costume. In fact we’ve never done anything else. This year these lucky kids got to wear two different costumes. I originally asked Raf’s mom if she wouldn’t mind making their costumes this year but then after she agreed and had nearly completed them Raf decided he really wanted to make them Doc Brown and Marty McFly costumes. So we put together these Back to the Future costumes and totally geeked out while doing it. I made Bennett’s wig using a feather boa, hot glue and her new born hospital hat. I then made her lab coat out of a white t-shirt, hot glue and fabric markers. Raf made Asher’s hover board using a template that he found online and printed out, poster board, foam, construction paper and felt. They were a huge hit!
The costumes that Mamani made them were these adorable firefighter and dalmatian costumes. They wore them to their preschool co-op halloween parade and it was pretty gosh darn cute. Unlike the ones we made, these costumes are so well made that I’m sure the kids will get a lot of use out of them playing dress up. YAY!
Here’s a look at Asher’s halloween 2014 jedi knight costume that we threw together the day of Halloween. He was so little!
