This year Kate chose her Halloween costumer early. She knew right away that she wanted to be The Black Widow from the Avengers. That got the other girls thinking about Superheros too. Turns out Kate’s costume was the easiest to buy off the shelf.
My one rule, when looking for costumes online, was that it could not have ‘Sassy’ or ‘Sexy’ in the title. You have no idea how many costume sets that eliminated! For that reason the girls had to build their own. Jill had a polka dot skirt and dotty Converse so she just needed a Captain America shirt and fun striped socks. (We just couldn’t take the intense serious pictures of Jill. Totally NOT believable. So you get to smiley ones!)
Ellie had the leggings and combat boots but she needed a Batman shirt, cool mask and black skirt. (She went slightly over the $30 budget but we figure the skirt can be reused for Christmas.)
And here is one outtake from our impromptu, ‘Oh my gosh it’s not raining quick get outside with the camera and costumes.’ photoshoot. Kate really wanted to try to get The Black Widow’s signature hair flip. We really didn’t get it at all but this picture just cracked us up!
