Growing up my mom always hand sewed our costumes and they were awesome! I was Malificent when I was 12 or 13 and the costume was 100% satin and weighed about 10lbs. I even won a costume contest. So I knew when I had kids I wanted to keep that tradition alive. When Starkweather was one she was a shark and her father and I were a shark and Quint from Jaws.
This year Starkweather was a spider and I was the web. My husband was the Empire State Building and Grey was King Kong. After Grey was over it we put the King Kong garb on Starkweather and made her King Kong. I can’t wait until next year when I can torture them again by making them dress up as Hall & Oates.
