Hats: It's Costume Making Time Again

I have already finished the hats that will go with our Halloween costumes this year.

I'm going to be Mary Poppins. I found the hat at a vintage store in downtown Gainesville and added flowers from the dollar store.


Blaze has decided to be a steampunk cowboy.

Our favorite inspiration pictures for this costume are these:


The movie version of Wild Wild West wasn't very good, but Will Smith's look for the video was awesome.


Blaze was really excited by the idea of a Tesla Ranger, enforcing the laws of science and fighting the robot menace in the wired West. So, last night after he went to bed, I made a special hatband for his cowboy hat.


The gears are a way for him to count coup, each one was taken from a robot he destroyed.

Perfect Mary Poppins hat:)
and Blaze's cowboy steampunk costume is going to be awesome!

Noah is still not sure of what he wants to be... kicking around the idea of a Colonial skeleton.
Last year, he was a steampunk skeleton:)

I really like the idea of skeletons throughout history. You could take pictures of him each year until you have enough to make a timeline (maybe with a little branch coming off of it for alternate realities).
