My daughter is going as a cat -- specifically Leafpool from the Warriors: The New Prophecy (http://www.warriorcats.com/content.html) book series. Leafpool is like a medicine man/shaman for her particular tribe of feral cats.

I don't have a picture of her in her costume yet, but I'm really pleased with how it came out. It was a 27-piece pattern, but somehow my husband and I -- neither of us sew -- managed to put it together! :cheering:

I'll get a picture when she gets home from school. :)

Coolies !! Can't wait to see it!!

Knit-errant, how old is your daughter ? I thought about getting those books for my son to read. He's 9 years old and loves cats and magic. Do you think he'd be able to keep up with them? (Able to understand them)

10-31-2006, 02:27 PM
My oldest (9 year old fourth grader) is going as Captain Underpants. The resemblance is uncanny, is it not? ;)

My 7 y/o DD will be a witch, my 5 y/o DS is a motocross rider, and my 1 y/o DD will be a frog (to go with the witch) but I haven't taken their photos yet.

10-31-2006, 02:37 PM
OHHHHH!!! Mickey is gonna be so jealous!! He loves loves loves Captain Underpants!! That pic is tooo cute!! Can't wait to see the others !!

10-31-2006, 02:38 PM
Last year my son dressed up like Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. He wanted to wear the same costume, only this year he didn't dye his blonde hair, he left it blonde and went as the new Bond, Daniel Craig. I'll post pics later.

My daughter is 9 too, and does just fine with them -- I say pick some up and see what he thinks! :)

We found out about the books about the time the second series came out. While my daughter was catching up on the first books, we were buying her a book every 3-4 days sometimes!

I will warn you, though, some of the fight scenes can get kind of rough and at least one cat will die in any given book. The deaths/fight scenes aren't horribly gory and disturbing, but you might want to read through a book a little bit and see what you think before letting him read them.

I like the series as much as my daughter does, though! :)

10-31-2006, 07:56 PM
Those books sound like something I'd like, too! I'll have to see if my library has any. :)

Ds (4) asked several months ago if he could be "Kool Aid Head" aka the Kool Aid spokesman. rofl I kept trying to talk him out of it, but he stuck to his guns. I finally finished up his costume last night. It's rather simple, but really really cute!

As soon as he gets dressed this evening I'll take a shot. :)

My 2 year old was a skeleton and my 8 year old was dracula .

10-31-2006, 10:04 PM
Okay, here he is. My son as Daniel Craig in "Casino Royale" the new James Bond flick.

10-31-2006, 10:18 PM
Love the costumes!! Here's g'son Ryan in his pirate get up.

10-31-2006, 11:02 PM
Awwwwwwwwwww !!! Very spooky !! Everyone is soooo cute!! :twisted:

10-31-2006, 11:25 PM
Taylor (5) was Sleeping Beauty, Emily (3.5) was Cinderella and Kimberly (10 months) was a tiger. Short night for actual trick or treating, we hit 4 houses then sat on the front step handing out candy and figuring out who was what. Thank goodness they are still at the age where I can get away with it!

I love the James Bond costume!
Everyones kids look so sweet!

Mine enjoyed trick or treating even though I had to go out and buy long johns to wear under their costumes. 70's over the weekend and 40's today :wall:

Sommer was a pirate
Sara was Super Girl
Nick was a Lion Knight
Zig was a Dark Knight (They made sure to tell everybody that they weren't just knights they different kinds of knights :teehee: )
Phia was Of course, a princess ( The second that I put that dress on she started doing little twirls and swinging and patting the ruffles it was so sweet.)

Awww they all look so cute! My daughter, who is 27, just ran out the door with her boyfriend before pix. :wall: I hope they take some where they are going. She was a scary cheerleader and her BF was dead geek. :roflhard:

11-01-2006, 07:33 AM
Here are mine! Noah (6) was Darth Vader and Caleb (4) was Pablo from the Backyardigans.

11-01-2006, 08:11 AM
Part devil/part angel - the perfect costume for her!

11-01-2006, 08:30 AM
I have to say, Captain Underpants has my vote :rofl: , though all of them are super cute! I am including my grandson, which needs a bit of explanation. His parents are both in computer IT and so Thomas is dressed as a "software" pirate. His trick or treat bag had an arrow pointing down saying "Download into this bag" and he wore a pirate's belt of CD's with "stolen" programs on them. My dd sewed most of his costume. Here is the little ham!

11-01-2006, 08:48 AM
JLC - the kids are adorable, I had a Darth Vader several years.

I have never seen the part angel part devil outfit before, what a great idea.

This was my first Halloween in 21 years that I didn't have at least one of my kids going trick-or-treating. They are all too old now. :teehee:

That didn't keep my youngest from dressing up. This "costume" was made about 30 minutes before trick-or-treating began. (again waiting until the last minute) He sat on the porch and handed out candy, and we had scary music playing.

He did manage to scare several of the kids, and he wasn't trying that hard. He just sat there totally still until they got in front of him then he would move to get their candy. :teehee:

The looks on their faces was priceless. Nobody screamed, but one dad did take a step backward. :teehee:


11-01-2006, 08:51 AM
:out: I wonder how many kids had to go home and change after seeing him! :rofl: There was a guy who did that last night--the screams and laughs were great.

11-01-2006, 08:58 AM
Gen: He creeps me out just looking at his photo! Years ago when my husband was in the Navy and we lived in base housing, we had this one guy that went all out in his front yard. We lived in townhouses and we had these itty bitty front yards with a sidewalk between two tiny patches of grass. He would set up this whole cemetary (he would find out the names of people in the base housing complex from other neighbors) and each year different neighbors names would be on these tombstones. On top of that every year he was hiding somewhere amongst the stuff, either in a coffin, or on a bench looking like your guy or something and scare the behooties out of everyone because he wouldn't scream or anything, but just say Happy Halloween. Problem was, you KNEW he was going to be there somewhere and had the pants scared off you before you walked up his sidewalk not knowing where he was, but knowing he was there somewhere!


11-01-2006, 09:15 AM
:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

He had a blast, he said it was a lot more fun than trick-or-treating.

We use to go all out too, we would have a graveyard, hangman, ghosts, one year we even moved our trailer (for hauling) around front and put a stuffed person under the wheel with red paint all over it and another headless one hanging over the side. :roflhard:

I have always loved halloween, when else can u have that much fun without being arrested? :teehee:


11-01-2006, 09:17 AM
by-the-way ......

no I have not been arrested. :teehee: :roflhard:

11-01-2006, 09:21 AM
Here are my kids!

11-01-2006, 09:29 AM
Warning!! This one is gross. My 17yo dd wanted to do something gross/scary this year and I think she pulled it off. This picture was taken at a party at her cheerleading gym. She won an award for the grossest costume. She actually scared some of the younger kids. She is with one of her coaches who was "Slash" from Guns N Roses. She called herself "Death by Pre-Calc".

11-01-2006, 09:36 AM
My kids all dressed up. Andrew (6) went as the scream guy, Haylee (3) went as Dora the Explorer, and Julianna (1) went as Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

11-01-2006, 10:00 AM
My kids were not into posing last night. :)

Grace (11 months) was Raggedy Ann. Julia (11) was a pirate. Bryant (8) was a ninja. And Kate (who turned 4 yesterday) was a Flower fairy, but told everyone she was Tinkerbelle. heh.

11-01-2006, 10:36 AM

Such GREAT costumes.

I can realate to the "death by pre calc" that's the way my daughter felt when she took it.


11-01-2006, 10:51 AM
My little Punkin! 9 months old.

and I figured if she was a pumpkin that I had better be a farmer! We had fun!!

11-01-2006, 12:03 PM
AWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!! Everyone is toooo cute !!! LOVES EM!!!

Hope everyone out there had a Happy Halloween!! Mickey and I went trick or treating last night and filled up a whole mixing bowl full of candy!! It was a totally awsome night last night! The weather was perfect!! I hope he doesn't ever grow out of this. I never did lol!

Talk to ya laterz!!

Spooky the spooktacular spook!

11-01-2006, 12:06 PM
All of your kids look soooo cute (and some scary!) Great job on all the costumes...they were all so creative! :cheering:

11-01-2006, 01:26 PM
Monkey (1 1/2 yrs) was Dracula. Not too original, but we thought she was pretty darn cute. (don't mind the off-centered widow's peak. You try holding down a toddler, throw her hair in pigtails, and scribble on her head with your eyeliner and see how well that goes for you. hehe.)


11-01-2006, 01:55 PM
DD (2) was the cowardly lion. It took about a 10 houses before she was willing to say "trick or treat". She would not let anyone touch her candy bag as she dragged around. She had a lot of fun, even though she isn't smiling in the pic!


11-01-2006, 02:25 PM

Jack was Peter Pan. He kept running around looking for Wendy. :teehee:

11-01-2006, 03:10 PM
My 10 year old went back and forth between calling himself a dust mite (from Totoro) to a slime monster. He scared some people so whatever he was it was successful :rofl:

11-01-2006, 04:37 PM
Here's my grandbaby Melissa on her first Halloween.

She was a grumpy spider. (Aren't they all?)


11-01-2006, 05:20 PM
Here is Ds in his "Kool Aid Head" Costume. :)


11-01-2006, 06:40 PM
My knight with his wooden sword. My DH was his faithfull servant.

11-01-2006, 08:18 PM
gimmesanity....your daughter looks like a little mini you! wowsa!!!

Everyone's costumes are just great! I love that spider! hehe


11-01-2006, 09:27 PM
Here's my kiddo for halloween. This was the first year he went trick or treating. My brother just graduated from the Police Academy in Virginia so he got his this outfit to wear!




11-01-2006, 09:46 PM

Yah, she's mini-me now. However, when she was first born, she looked JUST LIKE my mother-in-law. Seriously, she was the spitting image of that woman. One of the first things I said when I looked at her was, "Oh, look, I gave birth to Dorinda." LOL.
