We went to Disneyland Halloween again this year. The twins really enjoyed Monsters Inc. a lot lately and requested to be Boo and Sully and they wanted Daddy to be Sully too…! So I chose to be Mike. It’s been a busy year so instead of making 4 costumes from scratch, we went with mostly bought costume pieces put together.

I got my husband a silly Sully kigurumi from eBay. Miss J wore an oversized pink shirt with purple pants she already owned and pink ball hairbands. Miss R didn’t want to wear anything too complicated like an actual Sully costume or anything that pulled over her head, so we found her a Sully hoodie at Disneyland and I bought her a Sully tulle skirt from etsy.

I didn’t want to actually be shaped like a giant stuffed eyeball so instead I wanted to make a cute lime green dress and put an eyeball on it. I went with ByHandLondon’s Elisalex pattern for my dress and made it out of stretch cotton sateen. I cut Mike’s face out of scrap fabric and appliquéd it onto my dress before lining it. I bought a green eyeball hairbow from etsy and I made some paperclay horns to clip into my hair.

We had a lot of fun. The twins enjoyed pretending that Daddy was Sully, too, and calling him “Kitty.”

I really didn’t think I’d win anything, but I entered my Rapunzel costume in the Spookbook.nu DIY Halloween Contest… and I won a Runner Up $100 prize to American Apparel! AWESOME! I’ve been so busy with work this month that this was definitely a pick-me-up! Thanks to everyone who helped hype my outfit and left me sweet comments!
You can see the full winners of the contest on Lookbook’s blog.

Being the dork that I am, I decided to buy Amy Pond from Doctor Who’s red dolman hoodie and I also got a long cobalt blue chiffon skirt and some tights. Hurray! Thanks Lookbook and American Apparel!
