The Redhead originally wanted to be Ricky Fitness. But I told him I couldn't do braces. Plus his tummy and smile are way better suited to Crash. :) He loves Crash because 'He gets huge when he's emotional'.
Monkey loves Eaglebones, but was disappointed because his hair didn't grow fast enough. :) And he didn't want a wig. So he did sport MC Commander's mustache to the neighborhood carnival (because the stache is super fun). But Eaglebones remains his fave.
My friend pointed us to the Super Show on netflix a while back - which the boys LOVE and all of us are pretty into. They also like the Aquabats pandora station (ska). And someone would really like a CD for his upcoming bday...
Belts/anti-negativity helmets/goggles = felt. Shorts = sweatpants. Logo = iron-on.
We had quite a bit of fun with this quick burger shoot. Plus I didn't have to make lunch.
Burger rain clip here. My fave part is right at the 1:00 mark. I love the squish sound when Crash puts his hands into the burgers, and his smile as he rains the burgers down, then Eaglebones' awesome smile +jump when the burgers start falling again. Dudes, genius.
Actually, the whole show is pretty amazing. You should watch it. I've heard they film around here sometimes, here's to hoping we can catch them one of these days (dreams come true!)!
The girl decided (last year!) she wanted to be a greek goddess. Specifically Athena.
She turned out super cute but I'm kinda glad I didn't put any more effort into it (ribbon sandals and wrist cuffs didn't happen, etc - we could have been a lot more intricate!) because she's hardly had a chance to wear it. Unlike most years when she's worn it 3 or 4 times BEFORE the actual day. She didn't really even want to do photos (waa?!). Teenagers.
This is just a thrift store dress (perfect!) draped with some cool clearance gold/black net fabric, and various little gold accessories. She has a tan shirt under (and a white sweater for trick or treating!
Most people recognized what she was at a glance - but we found new respect for those who recognized the boys!
