Homemade Halloween

Once again we teamed up with our good friends Jenn and Chris Bohatyritz this Halloween and dressed up as Olympic Figure Skaters: Vivi & Günter from Sweden vs. Claude & Claudia from Russia. For the third year in a row, we raided our local thrift stores and found all the pieces and parts to make our costumes. Sam found a great mother-of-the-bride dress that ended up being essential to her seamstressing. One of our biggest challenges this year was coming up with a solution for our skates. We ended up wrapping our shoes in fabric and fabricating faux blades from silver foil paper mounted cardboard. See photo above of Chris working his blade magic!
