It has been a long while since I have been around these parts, but I am in need of motivation. For those that are new around here, or don't remember... I did a custom set of costumes last year.
I have the idea for the costume this year, but I am so busy with life and work that I am having a hard time finding the time to work on stuff. Since I don't want to let me kids down, and I don't want to let myself down, I am going to start writing articles here. This will hopefully give myself more motivation by knowing that you all will be counting on my costume prowess powers as well.
The costumes this year are not 100% set, but I have some thoughts.
Eldest son (will be 4 by Halloween): Yoshi
But not some simple costume... this is going to be more like a mascot costume for a 4 year old. I have a good idea of how to make it as well.
Youngest son (will be 2 by Halloween): Mario or Toad
I am not sure what I want to do here. I first thought to make him Toad which the size will work well. Also the big mushroom head would look super cute. Then I thought about making him Mario, because the size would work there too, and it would then be more recognizable.
Me: Mario or Bowser or None
At first my youngest was going to be Toad and I was going to be Mario. But the size really doesn't work. Then I thought I could just not dress up. Then I thought well... maybe Bowser if I have the time. If I make Bowser... then this would be more about the bowser costume than anything, and I really want the focus to be on the kids. I don't want to take anything away from them. Plus I really don't think I will have the time for Bowser.
So what does everyone else think? Going with the Yoshi/Mario theme what would be good costumes for me and my youngest?
