LOTR Halloween!

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
A sword

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,


and Powerful! 

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!!!!


  1. awesome costumes, esp. the gandalf one.

  2. Oh my goodness, these are superior!

  4. could you see walking around with that through the sheet ? wow very inventive.
