HAPPY HALLOWEEN 2019!

Updated: Nov 19, 2019

It's Halloween night in Canada!

This was our first Halloween as a family of three! We were brainstorming ideas for our costuming, but nothing good was sticking. This idea finally hit me in the middle of the night, I was so excited I woke up Dale, he was not as amused and didn't even remember the idea in the morning.


Halloween costumes can get expensive, even when you thrift shop and DIY. And there is the line where sometimes DIY can actually end up more expensive! I made all three of these costumes for $59.96. Including a $7.49 tie destroying incident. Disclaimer: never machine wash a tie, haha. See the breakdowns below...
