Halloween Costumes

Maybe this entry should be titled, "where my time has been going for the last month..."

I've always loved Halloween, and even celebrated it when I lived in Japan with the other Americans I could find. My mother always sewed costumes for me and my brother, so now I do it for our family. Isn't it marvelous how a costume can change how you feel? Not too many cultural musings today, as I'm seriously sleep-deprived from all the sewing. But I thought I'd share photos. The little kitty is my daughter (age 3, with her gymnastics teacher) and the Batman is my son (with others from his kindergarten class). The clowns are me and my husband. I have heard rumors that the clown costumes may be all too appropriate for us...

Happy Halloween, everyone!


  1. Wow! You made all those? No wonder you're sleep-deprived. I particularly like the combination of fabrics you used for Tim's costume, as well as the gorgeous blues on yours... very nice.


  2. Thanks, Dario. I know the appreciation of colors is sincere, coming from you!
