halloween costume plans & free portraits

October 20, 2015

This post is sponsored by Portrait Innovations because I think this event is really cool and want to share!

So, have you got your kids’ Halloween costumes figured out yet? I usually wait until the last minute just because Halloween is not a big deal to me. Sometimes it pays off (once I found an awesome costume for Meredith at Old Navy the day before for only a few bucks) but as with most things it’s much easier to plan ahead. (Especially when you’re like me and hate to pay real cash money for them.)

Last year’s costumes

Meredith is finally at the age where she has pretty strong opinions about what she wants to dress up as. First, she wanted to be Ariel. She stuck with that for a couple of weeks and I was begrudgingly going to order it. But then she found out her friends at school are going to be Elsa, and suddenly she wanted to be Elsa too. Only…she wanted to be Ariel AND Elsa. At the same time. I wasn’t sure how I was going to make that work.

THEN we visited her friend Jack who has a really cool firefighter costume that they played with, and I totally jumped all over that and I suggested she be a firefighter instead, and to my great pleasure she said yes! Even better, her cousin owns the costume already. We are still figuring out the finished products but here is the general idea:

This year I’m glad to have our costumes figured out early because there is a cool event going on offering free pictures from Portrait Innovations! I’m sure they could give us a better finished product than what I’ve gotten so far. ;) Check out their invitation:

Cool, right? Planning to go? If you’re a Houston local, there is a studio in Kingwood, Champions Village, Webster, and Sugar Land. What will your littles be dressed up as?

    From Nora:

    How cool is that? What a fun event!

    From what the girls are telling me, one is going to be Maleficent (her favorite) and the littler one wants to be Stitch (from Lilo & Stitch) who will be dressed up as a witch, so Stitch Witch (that was my idea as she was having a hard time finding a costume; she & her mom are making one, it seems!) . I really hope that our friends with kids bring their littles to our house for trick or treating; I love seeing how adorable they are all dressed up!
