Sometime after Halloween last year, I noticed how Elena's messy hair always reminded me of Frodo. Also, Leo was obsessed with the bow and arrow. So, I made a mental note of a possible Lord of the Rings Halloween costume.
Leo's Legolas costume:
An old blonde wig I had but never used
His bow and a fake arrow (knitting needle stuck inside a cardboard tube)
A brown tunic I sewed out of the old napkins
A belt with a sword
Tight brown pants (...uh...girls pants...)
Wrist guards made out of the napkins
And a homemade cape
Elena's Frodo Costume
A homemade cape
A vest made out of the napkins
Pants sewn out of napkins
My old dirndl tunic
My ring on a shoelace
But something was missing. Something very important.
(Or so I decided while drinking wine.)
She was missing Frodo feet!!!
So I used a wacky setting that doesn't really exist on the sewing machine to make "hair" on nude fabric...
*I'll wait until you stop giggling to continue???
Okay - so there you have it:
Frodo - The Small,
Then, I was chatting with my sister over the phone about the kids costumes and somehow, she came up with a baby Gandalf on my shoulders and I was completely sold on the idea!!!!
So I sewed a white Gandalf hat for him and grabbed a white sheet!
I made Jason take a ton of pictures since I couldn't actually see it under that 500 degree cape...
And they are all freakin hilarious :)
I hope you all had fun Halloweens!!!!
