Happy Halloween! I always say that Halloween is my secret favorite holiday. I look forward to it so much! We are huge fans of dressing up, and this year Bradley came up with the idea to do and underwater theme, so we went with it! I love my little sea turtle, deep sea divers and my handsome shark (who is always the best sport for dressing up!)
I think this one is my very favorite picture from the whole shoot!
Baby sea turtles are my favorite animal, so I could hardly handle Eli’s cuteness in this costume!

Garrett’s Shark Costume
I made the boy’s costumes, they were really simple- just a long sleeved black shirt and black sweatpants. I originally borrowed wet suits for them to wear, but when I tried on Cash’s he looked at me and said “mom I can’t breathe!” so I decided to nix that idea. I just cut out foam flippers and hot glued elastic to the ends so they could slide their shoes through. For their scuba gear, I just spray painted soda bottles and duct taped the arm straps on, and black plastic tubing and a black round something-or-other from the hardware store. And for their masks I just cut a hole in a black adult beanie.
I made my mermaid costume- check back tomorrow for the full tutorial on how I made it and all the beauty/makeup products that I used!
