{Not Even Close} Wordless Wednesday

...Happy Halloween! 

Our little monkey this morning!
 Matt and I dressed up this past weekend for our party as  Tia Dalma and Captain Barbossa from Pirates of the Caribbean.  Wish we would have taken a picture of Matt with his beard... he looked really great!

Matt's costume is mainly all from the thrift store. (Two Jackets, and pants).  I sewed on the gold buttons. 
Hat was actually a witch hat.  I cut off the point and sewed it closed.  Then bent one end and added a large feather. ($13 DIY vs. $40 pirate hat). 
The belt and shirt were from our closet.
And the sword and boot tops were the only accessories we purchased at the halloween store.
I made my dress using two thrift store gowns and sewing them together ($18).  
I then accented with fishing net and shell necklaces I picked up from hobby lobby ($8).  
Wig is from the halloween store ($15)... with scraps of fabric and fish net tied in.

Close up of the makeup... 

Some of the centerpieces I made

Veggie Platter Skull 
Fake skull draped with thinly sliced pieces of ham.  The eyes are baby onions with slice olives in the center.

Homemade Guacamole Dip! safe!
