    We much prefer home made costumes for Halloween! Last year Harvey was a pirate. I took an old pair of long shorts and cut into the bottom of them, he wore a striped tshirt under the Jacobite shirt from his kilt, a fake earring, eye patch and a skull and crossbones scarf on his head. I drew some stubble and that was him.

    Vincent was Shaun from Shaun of the Dead. He just wore black trousers, a white shirt, which I put red ink on the pocket of then he had a red tie and name badge. We made him a wee cardboard cricket bat to go with it.

    We have also made Harvey a scarecrow outfit before with denim dungarees, check shirt, straw hat, face paint and some shredded yellow paper for straw.

    I went to tesco earlier and had a quick nose at all the halloween stuff which got me thinking about what to dress LO up in this year.. One idea which entered my head was a mummy :blush::haha: I thought of maybe ripping up old clothes, a little bit of face paint, and a few bandages here and there! I wouldn't leave it on him for very long though, only for a couple of photos and maybe take him ''trick-or-treating'' to my parents' house :haha: Unless he was happy wearing it of course! Lol :lol:

    ...I just typed in 'toddler mummy costume' in to google and I think they look adorable :cloud9::lol: haha! xx

    I think we have now decided on a mad hatter costume for Harvey but it will depend on my hat making skills, which I suspect may be somewhat lacking!
