Favorite Halloween costume (Wreck It Ralph!)

It is Friday, otherwise known around these parts as Blogember Day 15! Today's prompt is favorite halloween costume and I'm ecstatic to finally share ours from this year! If you follow me on instagram you've already seen these but oh we had a blast this year. And the best part of all of it? The searching for the perfect pieces and making our own if we couldn't find what we needed? The absolute best part of it all is that after last year's lessons Miss S was beyond thrilled about every detail and stayed in character for a week before and about a week after. Ha!

My Fix It Felix get up was by far the easiest. I ordered the hat and shirt patch online. We found the shirt on clearance at Gap Kids. The jeans are my own. The tool belt is form a toy set. I borrowed the gloves and boots from my dad. And we spray painted a hammer! ;) Surprisingly, Rory's Ralph was the most challenging. The hardest part of his? Brown overalls. I kid you not. We ended up dying a pair of khaki colored ones with brown fabric dye. He made the hands himself! I keep telling him he needs to start a blog. The green undershirt is actually mine. (Shhhh.) and we found his orange shirt on clearance at H&M and dyed it orange. We made the medal with gold glitter paper and blue ribbon.

Sookie's Vanellope Von Schweetz was the most fun to put together! Probably because the glee in her eyes was pure magic! We dyed a hoodie with fabric dye and layered two brown skirts she already had. We threaded yard through the hoodie as well. Her tights were a blast! Painted each leg separately. Socks and shoes she already had. For her hair we (obviously) sprayed it black and tied a real piece of licorice in it. For the candy, I glued a bunch of random pieces onto black clips.


Can't wait to see yours! :)
