Prowling the streets...

This Halloween was a good one, except for the cold and the kids being sick. My wife and I worked together to make 3yr old Logan's Popeye costume. I could NOT find any kid's Popeye costume in stores OR online anywhere. Not even Ebay! I made my own costume, including the corncob pipes Logan and I sported. I asked him if he wanted me to be Bluto, Wimpy or Poopdeck Pappy, Popeye's dad. He insisted on Pappy.
This was Mikey's first year as Spider-Man. He had a tough time with the mask so spent half the night without it. Rebecca was Batgirl. I can't BELIEVE how slutty the costume looks! Because of the cold, we had her wear a long sleeve black shirt and black pants, which I think looked great! I don't know what the hell the designers were thinking for this outfit for little girls!
Logan wanted to go home after the 3rd street, and Mikey was WILLING to go home after the 4th.

Love the costumes. Logan's pose is perfection. Rebecca is sooo adorable & dude, I have trouble with masks allll the time, kay?

Anyway, I also dig your peacoat version of popeye :) Glad you all had fun!!! All we did was sit around our house, crossing our fingers that we wouldn't get trick or treaters so that WE could eat all the candy LOL. Which we then proceeded to do.
