So it's no surprise that Matt and I are recycling some costumes for this year. We actually made these last year, but only wore them to give out candy to the kids. This year we're taking them out on the town for two parties! Matt has always seen himself as a cowboy...and I had a crush on Pocahontas growing up.
So there you have it. Cowboy & Indian. And we are so rockin' it.

But the best part about our costumes is that they are completely homemade! No joke...
Matt of course had it easy. We picked up the vest from goodwill. We did purchase his accessories from the party store...(the child in him insisted he get guns...and caps) but all in all we found all his items in the closet.
I purchased fabric from Joann Fabrics and did the ol' cut & tie. It was time consuming, but it well worth it! I even used some of the extra scraps to tie onto my fab fall suede boots. Got some feathers and beads and made a headpiece too. :)
Halloween 2010... here we come!
Disclaimer: We're fully aware of how ridiculous we may look posing all over our house in costume. But we believe strongly in capturing a memory to the extent of overkill. We'd like to think our kids will thank us later.
