Trick-or-treating was postponed until Friday, November 1 because of awful rain and winds on the 31st. We carved pumpkins on the 31st and still had a great night. I came home from work a bit early on Friday so we could all get decked out in our Red Riding Hood gear.
This was our first time doing a family theme and it was SO much fun. Matthew was the woodcutter, Elias was the wolf, Adeline was Red Riding Hood and I was the grandma.
I followed this tutorial for Elias’s costume. The grey sweatshirt and sweat pants were from Wal-Mart. The tail was formed by cutting a leg off an extra pair of sweats, stuffing it and sewing it to the back of the pants. All of the felt elements were attached using stitch witchery. You can find the pattern for the mask on Etsy.
In typical 2-year-old fashion, she didn’t like having the hood up, so we only got a few photos with it up. At least she didn’t mind it hanging down her back.
I found a wig on Amazon, glasses at The Dollar Tree and borrowed a nightgown from my grandma to complete my Granny look.
We trick-or-treated for about an hour and a half. Our friends the Behms joined us and the kids loved having Hannah (Snow White) with us (despite Adeline’s annoyed face – she didn’t want to sit for a photo!).
