A Bit Batty

This year for Halloween the girls wanted to be bats. Ellorie read some books about bats from school and has been a little obsessed. I made them some "bat wings" out of black t-shirts and glittery felt. The screeeeeching is a little noisy, but they sure have a lot of fun.

I also made the girls headbands with ears and some little felt "stuffies" out of the extra felt.

Even Rylan likes to be a bat:

Hanging "upside down":

Mason is going as a ninja this year. He gets very into character. It fits well with the bats.

Happy Halloween!

Your costumes turned out fantastic! I love homemade creative costumes - they have so much more character. Your children look darling! Rylan looks so handsome and grown up, I cannot believe how much he has changed since I last saw him. I miss seeing you guys.

The bats are darling, and Mason's ninja persona is realistic. (The fence pose is very sly). It looks like your little trick-or-treaters had a great Halloween.
