I mentioned yesterday that my kids like to have a "non-costume costume" that they can wear to school since they are not allowed to come to school costumed out on Halloween. Usually that just means a tee shirt with skeleton bones printed on it or the ever-popular "This is my Costume" tee shirts. This year I got a little more creative!
Monsters University this year. Do you want to see the cutest thing ever? My kids dressed up as Mike, Sully and Celia the Halloween after Monsters, Inc. came out:
I couldn't find the digital copy of that photo after our hard drive meltdown so I had to snag the only picture I could find from one of my kids' scrapbooks and scan it in. It's not great quality and you can't see our friends' daughter who was Boo, but you get the idea. It seemed fitting that the boys should reprise their roles this year.
You guys! You would not believe how easy these are to make! I picked up the solid color hoodies at Wal Mart for about $11 each. The turquoise was perfect, but they didn't have green so we just bought a white one and dyed it with Apple Green fabric dye.
For the Mike Hoodie:
For the Sully Hoodie:
Again, download the horn pattern at the bottom of this post and follow the instruction printed on it to create 2 larger horns. Have your kiddo try the hoodie on again to get the right placement of the horns, pin them in place and sew them on by hand.
Monsters University is available on Blue-ray Combo Pack TODAY, October 29th!! How cool is that?! Seriously, run out and get your copy today or pick up a copy online here. We've seen it several times now as a family and we laugh all the way through every time. Sometimes I think these Disney movies are more fun to watch now that our kids are older because they pick up on more of the nuances of humor in them. Plus, I so enjoy watching a movie with my teenage kids that doesn't make me cringe at any point. Don't miss out on this one!
