Family Halloween Costumes – Little Red Riding Hood

October 30, 2018

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!! I don’t know what it is about family Halloween costumes but I just can’t get enough.

Either way, I cherish these photos so much and am going to be so sad when my kids don’t want to participate. But I can’t even talk about that right now ?!

Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

October 29, 2018

Halloween costumes are my jam. I love going all out and it’s not unusual for me to spend hours painting faces, crimping hair and layering all sorts of fabulous things together to create the perfect costume.

Life is busy during October with all the pumpkin patches and corn mazes and of course there’s always lots and lots of baking to do! Even though I LOVE Halloween, sometimes life requires a costume that’s quick and easy. I’ve seen these Maskimals all over the place and thought I’d give you some last-minute Halloween costume ideas if you’re needing an affordable and quick costume for your monster mash parties and masquerades.
