Home on the Corner Halloween!

Good morning!  I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe Halloween yesterday.  Even though I had to work all day, I was still able to have a little bit of fun and dress up.  I wore a pair of Minnie Mouse ears to work but that was it.  Nothing too exciting.

But I did have an actual costume that I wore just because.  I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do for Halloween and then I had the random (yes it was completely random) thought of dressing up like Molly McIntire from the American Girl series.  Molly was the only doll that looked like me (except for the glasses) and I had the doll and a lot of her things when I was growing up.

So here is my outfit with my Molly doll.

Molly dress up

I am very happy with how my outfit turned out!  I was able to find everything relatively easy with the exception of my skirt, which I ended up sewing myself.  And thanks to my friend Elise who went out on a random photoshoot adventure with me to get this adorable photo.

Mom dressed up as well.  For her job, all of the teachers dressed up as different story book characters.  And she dressed up as Bo Peep from Toy Story!

She even has a little lamb and everything!  I have to say that my mom got very creative with her outfit.  She used a candy cane for her staff and fashioned her own ruffles for the bloomers.  She also made her cute bow headband!  I think it looks so cute and perfect for a story book character.

And of course the dogs had to dress up!  Do you remember their costume from two years ago?  If not, you should click here because it was cute!  So of course, the dogs have to outdo their costumes from before and my mom and I were on the hunt for their outfits!

Sea Creature Dress Up

In this photo we have Rozy Blu the turtle, Ezzy the shark, Zoella aka Munch the lobster, and Maggie the mermaid.  Aren’t they the cutest?!  They even have their own background and props for the photo.  This took a lot of treats, sweat, and convincing everyone to look at the camera to get this photo.  But some of the outtakes are even cuter!

And that’s it!  This is how we all celebrated Halloween at our house.  I hope you enjoyed our little update post and enjoy the rest of your day!

DIY Dog Costumes for Halloween!

Hello!  How is everyone doing this week?  Is everyone excited that it is Friday, because I know I am!

This week we are looking forward to Halloween (it is only a couple weeks away if you weren’t aware).  And we are taking a look at some Halloween costumes for our furry friends!  Now, my cats would think that it’s the worst thing in the world to be dressed up in a costume, but other people will dress their pets up for each Halloween.  So here are some ideas for you if you have decided to dress up your pet but you don’t have any ideas.  Enjoy!

This Ty Beanie Baby swing tag costume is easy to make and adorable on pets but can also be a great costume for their humans, too. I'm loving this for the Howloween Pet Parade!

Clifford the Big Red Dog and Pals Halloween

Happy Halloween!!! October has seemed like a really loooonnggg month! I’m not sure why, but I am glad to be in November.

I decided to have a little fun with dressing up the dogs this year. They are just so funny and it makes me smile. I started out with a felt doghouse. I just tacked it onto a board and set it up. Nothing too fancy!

Next came the challenge! Getting the dogs dressed and posed. Rozy does pretty good, but as you can see here, she has a couple of extra legs and an extra tail. I chose Clifford because Rozy always wants to sit on our lap like she is just a little puppy. Actually, we can’t see a thing in front of us when she sits there!

We actually did pretty good getting this picture of Maggie, aka Cleo. She just hasn’t gotten the hang of sit and stay yet.

Why is this taking so long and why do I have to wear these ridiculous things?

I love the beanie pulled down low! She looks like a hoodlum!

Oh my! I don’t think Munch is liking this! She even stuck out her tongue in protest!

Better…but still missing Cleo.

This is as good as it gets! At least they are all in the picture. Of course, the neighbor dog started barking and everything went haywire!

Ezzy acts like she doesn’t want to dress up in a Halloween costume, but she kept hanging around and getting in the way, so I finally put this ladybug costume on her and she seemed satisfied with that.

I hope this gave you a little smile today and enjoy your Halloween!

Fabulous Finds and Fashions-Costume Edition

Hello everyone!  Welcome to another edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions.  This week, because my actual post for Friday is taking longer than expected, I am showing you what I am wearing for Halloween.

Now, do you remember when I posted about all my love of a Youtuber name Markiplier?  No…well click here to read that blog post.

So, I decided to be Markiplier for Halloween!  Or at least the female version.

full-markiplier

So, I will be wearing the Markiplier logo shirt under a red plaid flannel shirt that I bought from Old Navy.  Now, why am I wearing a red flannel?  According to Markiplier, his red flannel shirt is his lucky flannel, so I must wear it also.  I will be wearing my over ear headphones since Markiplier is a gamer and wears these kinds of headphones.

up-close-markiplier

I added some more Markiplier themed stuff on the pocket.  I have a hot pink mustache because Mark has a character on his channel called Wilford Warfstache who has a pink mustache.  So, it has become a symbol on the channel.  I also added my two Five Nights at Freddy’s characters since Mark is considered the King of Five Nights at Freddy’s.

Even though no one is going to know who I am for Halloween, there is that random chance that they will.  Either way, it is fun and simple and I can’t wait to wear it!
