Book Blogger Hop - October 28

Book Blogger Hop

Thanks to  Crazy-for-books for hosting this hop, I hope to hop on from time-to-time......I also found some new blogs and I am looking forward to knowing what others are reading and saying! 

This week's question is a fun Halloween one:

“What is your favorite Halloween costume?
Even if you don’t celebrate, what kinds of costumes do you like?”

My Answer: We love Halloween at our house and have had many costumes over the years. I still have a closet full of extra costumes. But I think my favorite was when my husband and I were Deep Sea Divers. We used painters suits, made paper mache' helmets then painted them grey and duct taped some old shoes to look like heavy boots. My son was 15 months at that time and I made a shark costume for him. I used grey sweatpants and shirt and had sewn a stuffed fin and tail on the back. Brings back good memories.........

Another favorite is two years ago my daughter had her heart set on being a mermaid so I attempted to sew a costume for her. I tried my best and it was a little crooked but she loved it with its imperfections anyway!

I am looking forward to finding out what costumes are your favorite! Hoping to get some ideas for next year. Have a great hop weekend......Happy Halloween!


  1. The ones you create yourself are the best.Have a happy Friday.

  2. Oh those sound awesome! No one really has sewing talent in my family, so my costumes were store bought, unless I created my own! Like one year I worn flannel pjs, put my hair in pigtails and carried a teddy bear around to go as a "wittle girl"!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!
