Our goofy costumes.....
The goal every year is to see how cheap we can make our costumes. I must say we did pretty good.
Here are the chinese acrobat brothers, Sim and Ju. Let me tell you we got quite a few looks on these.....All I had to buy was poster board and a couple of cans of spray paint. We found the boxes in dumpsters, used the foam trampoline covers (that we still haven't set up), for legs, and a pillow for the bum....in case you were wondering like some people we overheard: "How did they do that?"
Here is the Mona Lisa, or should I say "The Mona Liesel"? She was embarrassed because "everyone kept staring at her". I spent $5 on the enlarged print at Kinko's, the frame came from the attic. I cut out eye holes but in retrospect I wish I would have cut out the entire face. I think that would have been really cute.
Hope has been dreaming of having wings lately. So she got to be a butterfly.
And Little Miss Ukraine 2008.......complete with the beauty pageant wave.
The boys were chosen as finalists for the costume contest and won 3rd place. Here were some of the rest of the finalists....
And the first place prize went to........
Gene Simmons of KISS. I was shocked at the size of this kid's tongue, although I think Ava has him beat. :)
