Shave the Alamo!

We like to think our costumes were a success. Justin did say all weekend that he thought it was the best idea yet. I do have to agree, even though some people at the party were like, "Sweeny Todd? Never seen it."

I whipped mine up in a few hours. I didn't hem it because, seriously, it's a Halloween costume. I used a burn out stretchy fabric for the bodice and just wore a black shirt underneath. The party was in the hosts garage so it was a bit too cold for me (still not getting use to Minnesota. I know, I know, the winters will be nothing compared to this) so I had my jacket on all night. Except for pictures.

Look at our brave pups "Saving the Alamo!" More like, "Protecting our Pumpkins!"

Davie "Skye" Crockett and (this is totally not politically correct but there was no other way around it) her enemy in real life "Scully" Mexican Soldier. Really she's supposed to be part of General Santa Ana's army, but we based the whole costume around her hat.

Scully ready for action with her bullets. Good thing we didn't give her a gun too.

Skye hated the hat. I guess it reminds her of the bunnies she's always chasing in the yard.

They both lost the war protecting our pumpkins. They were stolen and smashed down the street. Minnesota hoodlums.

I'm going to say that the dog costumes were much more affective for me....especially after watching a few really bad high school band shows about Sweeney Todd. Sorry....your just going to have to work harder on the creativity for next year.

Also, props on the pumpkins! Very cool!

Sweeny Todd? On the field?

You know, we have our costumes picked out for next year already. I think we'll top any year we've ever done with them.

Oh ya, Sweeney Todd on the field. One of the high schools where I teach lessons is doing it this year...very strange show.

Yes, on the field...

and Hair and make-up alone doesn't make your guard better.

But it made MY costume better :)

So there, I win. First place, Thank you for judging. Don't forget your gift bag. See you next year!
