Halloween part 3

We usually attend the Halloween festivities in San Francisco’s Japantown- it’s very family friendly, all the activities are free, and we usually run into friends there. Today started out very rainy but the weather cleared up just in time.

The kids chose different outfits today- the Wee Boy was a pirate (cobbled together from things we had around the house), and the Girl was Kiki from the movie Kiki’s  Delivery Service. I made the dress and cat (Jiji) for her four years ago, but they’re still serviceable! I wore my Dalek outfit again.

It was super sunny and bright after the rain!
This is exactly why I don’t mind spending the time to make our costumes; they still get so much love ❤️ even years later. 

Three down, one to go! 

Halloween parts 1 and 2

Yesterday was our first Halloween event, a carnival at the Girl’s school. I dressed in a school uniform, which went over really well with kids and adults alike. There were many double-takes, and many of the smaller kids who I hadn’t met yet thought I was one of the big kids. 😂


I only managed one goofy selfie. 

Today was the Halloween party at the Wee Boy’s school, where my Dalek costume made its debut.


The Wee Boy was the Fourth Doctor from Dr Who, and the Girl is Rey from The Force Awakens.  Most people thought I was a ladybug, but a handful of parents recognized Tom Baker and a Dalek. 



I plan to do a post soon about how I put my costume together- with ideas I would have found useful. 

Two events down, two to go!
