october 2008 i was very prego....with that said, i had to think of a way to incorporate my big belly into our trunk or treat ensemble. if you google "homemade halloween costumes" you will have a slew of ideas to sort thru. after some searching, i decided i could be an oven and my belly would be the "bun".....get it, bun in the oven....hahaha....pretty cute, huh? i made the oven from a large box. i cut the front to make the door and used an old curtain rod to make the handle. i cut the picture of the bun from a box of honey buns and taped it to my belly. notice the "timer" in the upper right hand corner....11 weeks to go!
since i was an oven i decided to make the theme of the trunk a bakery. jeremy became the baker and reagan became a cupcake. reagans cupcake costume is made from an old pleated lamp shade (mom & dads attic). jeremy cut the insides out of the shade (this made it wearable) and then we painted it silver. i cut pink fleece for the top of the cupcake (the icing) glued "sprinkles" on top and glued it to the inside of the shade. if reagan had been much bigger she wouldn't have been able to wear the shade because of how narrow the bottom was so if you are going to try the cupcake i would suggest it for a small child.
we really enjoyed our costumes this year and our trunk actually won 2nd place!
