Halloween Costumes, Part 2

Welcome, witches and wizards, to the second edition of our two-part Halloween Costume Special. Today we'll be talking about two other costumes that are definitely some of our favorites- our Fairy and Trick-or-Treater costumes.

The Fairy costume is your typical fluttery skirt, white leotard, whimsical fairy wings, and ballet flats. This lovely ensemble was a steal from Michael's for only around 7$. Granted the outfit isn't as great of quality as AG-brand costumes, it does work nicely for Halloween and is pretty well-made for the price. Last year this was my costume but this Halloween, Jane will be using it. I have my own special costume planned! ;)
The other costume we will be showcasing is merely a set we received as a gift from one of Sunny's people friends. The shirt (which we believe is the purple tee from the Doll Tees craft kit) is given a very spooktacular look with an iron-on ghost and bats. The coordinating trick-or-treat bag is decorated with CREEPY ghost eyes and bats. This outfit is not as much as a costume as the Fancy Riding Outfit, Minnie Mouse dress, or the Fairy costume so we added a black mask for an extra scary effect.
So those are our current costumes here at FMSG! Nothing much but they aren't too hopeless. As for my amazing costume, that will be revealed on Halloween for a EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA special post. Until then- some Halloween trivia!

~Orange and black are the official Halloween colors because orange is associated with fall harvest and black is associated with death and mourning.

~Black cats were thought to be the aids and familiars of witches or magical beings.

~Halloween is the second most commercially successful holiday, after Christmas.

~Some say that if you see a spider on Halloween, it is the soul of someone dear looking over you.

~Pumpkins also come in colors such as green, white, and BLUE!

Have a great weekend!



  1. Those are great costumes! I never knew that about spiders and there are quite a few around here (not inside, though!) so I will look for one on Halloween.

  2. Very cute costumes! They both look great, and such lovely girls modeling them as well. :) The photos are great as well, they're so clear, bright, and colorful.

    Sorry we haven't been around much to comment.
    Happy Halloween!
