In continuing on with the costume's of Halloween's past, the kiddos were Hansel and Gretel in 2012. I put a lot of time and effort into these costumes and am a little bummed that I didn't get any great pictures out of the ordeal. I sure did try, and the kids sure did run away from me anytime the camera was aimed in their direction. I couldn't even sneak a shot! Those little boogers were on to me!
Gretel was similarly achieved by finding a German dress on Etsy. I was amazed to find a dress that worked so well and so badly wish the girl would have cooperated for a picture to show how perfect it was. Search for "girl's German dress" or "girl's Oktoberfest dress" and if you are lucky, you'll find a nice selection. I picked up a scalloped edged white shirt from Target, sweater tights from H&M and pulled black Mary Jane's from girl kiddo's closet. Perfection! Of course, I couldn't forget the bread basket! Luckily I had a perfect basket on hand, grabbed a red kitchen towel and viola, costume complete!
