Halloween 2013: Merida and Mary Poppins (Jolly Holiday)

I can't believe it is already Halloween!  I thought I would share a few quick pictures of the kids and their costumes.

If you don't recognize her, E is Mary Poppins:

Not "Spoon Full of Sugar" Mary Poppins, but "Jolly Holiday" Mary Poppins (Where she dances with Burt and some penguins in an animated world):

It is a homemade costume made from a sheer long sleeve shirt I found at Target and about $15 worth of tule, costume stain and some trims.  I sewed a large ruffle, lace and red ribbon onto the blouse and I made the cumberbund from scratch using the make-it love-it tutorial here.  We found the hat at goodwill and added the tule and old dried flowers I had laying around.

It isn't perfect, and we never got around to making the boot covers, but it is obvious it is Mary!

J wanted to be Merida from Brave when she saw this costume at Costco.  Typically I like to make costumes, not buy them, but she loved it.. and it included the wig.  It was only $13.99 and I couldn't make it from scratch for that

Baby J's costume also came from Costco. It is Carter's brand and was on sale for $12. He isn't going trick or treating, but I wanted something to put him in for when we walked around all the other Halloween activities (Pumpkin Patch, Halloween Festival etc.)  Since the weather was cool, I picked up this cuddly lion outfit and he seems to love it.

   I hope everyone has a great Halloween! 
May only the best types of candy end up in your trick-or-treat bag and stay safe!

    They all look so cute!

  2. Thank you to sharing at Throwback Thursday link party. I made something similar last Thanksgiving but it didn't have the bacon. Bacon makes all better. ~Jeanette

    They all look adorable! Mary Poppins' dress and umbrella are awesome, she looks beautiful! Merina's hair rocks, and that little lion is complete cuteness ;) We did have a nice Halloween time, I'm still enjoying the candies :)

  4. We love brussel sprouts and would devour this dish. Thanks for sharing with this week's Throwback Thursday party.

    I love Brussel Sprouts and this looks really yummy! Thanks for sharing at Throwback Thursday.


  6. Thanks. Since my kids are willing to eat it, it must be halfway okay!

  7. I totally agree.. even if it is "Gilding the Lily" it still never hurts to add Bacon!

  8. My eldest daughter has discovered brussel sprouts still on the stalk (they sell them at Trader Joes) and now half the fun is cutting them off!

  9. Loved it! I didn't even bother wiping out the pan after the bacon, just tossed the sprouts in with some of the bacon fat. Delicious!


Thanks for your comments. I try to get back to anyone with a question.. so please make sure to leave an email address if you want a reply!
