Our Toy Story Family - Happy Halloween!

Well, we had a spectacular Halloween!  The girls have about 10 pounds of candy each!  We trick or treat in downtown Boston - at Beacon Hill - which is a beautiful, afluent part of town that goes all out for Halloween :)  It was a very pleasant night, and the costumes held up great!

Since we had Jessie and Buzz Lightyear, it was only fitting for Sean and I to be Toy Story characters as well. 

I made this Mrs. Potato Head costume out of felt.  The ears are stiff felt.  The "accessories" are sewn around the edges, with a little stuffing inside to make them stick out a bit.  The best part - it was warm!

Bullseye is a hoodie with felt sewn onto it.  I used the same method to sew the mane and tail that I used when sewing the dragon hoodies here
Then, I added ears, eyes, and a saddle with felt, some of it stuffed to make it 3-D as well.

We had fun together, and got lots of nice comments.  As usual, it is hard to get a good family photo - but here we all are together at a party a few nights ago. 

Happy Halloween - as Buzz would say, "To Infinity, and Beyond!"
