Princess Buttercup

Okay, now for mine. I must apologize in advance. Apparently, when I'm the one that needs to be in the pictures, it becomes very difficult to get good pictures. lol!

Anyway, I wanted to be Princess Buttercup for Halloween, but I already had a gown cut out (for another purpose that didn't end up happening) and that had been sitting in a bin for about 2 years. So, I just redesigned the sleeves and made it a Buttercup-ish dress. I really like how it came out!

Pink! I love the shimmery overlay. I added the gold trim to make it kind of royal looking.

The sleeves are my favorite! I designed them myself and love how they came out! They are really heavy, though! :)

My 7 year old took this picture. It's the best we got... hahaha.

Our crazy bunch! Happy Halloween everyone!! :)

No. Michael refuses to dress up for Halloween. I'm okay with that as long as he's okay with my crazy love of dressing up. It works... :)

I love your halloween costumes and committment to dressing up. I haven't made myself a costume in 4 years and I was hoping to change that this year but it just didn't happen. You look great in fancy pink!

I love it! You guys all look so great! I thought about dressing up this year but everything I thought of would be ridiculous with a baby bump. haha!

Terrific! So fun to see your family decked out for H-ween. I hope you serve orange milk with your dinner (I always made hot dogs as it was the only thing my kids would eat before the candy fest).

Trick or treat==you all look sweet!

I think you should get like 3,700 mom + awesome seamstress points for those costumes. They are incredible. Especially since my kids grabbed something out of the dressups in their room this year. I forgive myself a multitude of mom sins on the years babies are born.
