 Since I just posted pictures of me dressing up as Cinderella at my daughter’s princess party, I guess I better explain where the costume came from…
{my poor husband is probably going to die of embarrassment}
ok. so a few years ago- I do not know what got into me- but I thought it would be fun to dress up as Prince Charming and Cinderella for Halloween. I think we pulled it off pretty well, but before I go any further, I have to tell you that it took a lot of convincing and coaxing and one really good promise in order to convince Troy to go along with this. I’m pretty sure all the guys who saw him in this costume had a really good laugh, but hopefully said to themselves, that’s a guy who really loves his wife. Haha, he took it in stride, and is confident enough to go along with most of my crazy ideas. Gosh I love him.
But still, to this day, I cannot believe I made him do this! poor chap.
Although I hafta say, I do think he made one handsome Prince Charming!!!
As far as costume construction goes…
The Cinderella dress was my junior high school prom dress! My mom made it, and the cool thing is that its reversible! (She’s a genius).  I added the white satin with safety pins, covered a headband with satin, and found the other accessories laying around.
For Prince Charming, there was a lot of cardboard, gold fabric, curtain tassels, random trimmings, hot glue, and safety pins involved. This was a 20 minute job tops. I just used a white shirt and black pants, and hand sewed or safety pinned all the trimmings to my victim husband.
Oh, and then there’s our kids. Yeah, I made Halloween a little more about us than our kids that year… whoops. But they were little and didn’t care. Now Halloween is all about them 🙂
So we had a mini Cinderella, who wouldn’t share any candy and that devious look on her face just kills me. And then there was baby Gus Gus. We borrowed that amazing costume from a good friend. She looked so hilarious!

And there ya have it. One cheesy but happy family ever after on Halloween 3 years ago. (way, way cheesy). The end.

Once upon a time…

I started a blog. This is a tale of my projects, goals, and dreams. Thank you for taking a moment to stop by. I hope you have a beautiful day.
