Halloween Costumes 2014

This is the first time we are making a costume for Lucas & taking him trick-or-treating (candy collecting) at Straits Quay. 2 years back, he was dressed as a tiger.

So this year, we decided to make him a costume. *in a very last min manner*
We wanted it to be simple so we chose his favourite bus character... Tayo. Daddy sprayed painted a cardboard box. For the headlights, eyes and mouth, we printed it on sticker paper, cut it out and then just adhere it on the cardboard box. Black sugar paper is used as windows and finally, used circle cutter to cut on black and white card stock to make the wheels. Punch some holes and tied a ribbon so we can hang them over Lucas.

But, as expected, during the event, Lucas was cranky even though he manage to get some sleep abit before the event. He just wouldn't want to wear it. Also the crowd was massive.  So much larger than we expected. We saw a lot of superheros & princess elsa :) Seeing the crowd grab sweets like "piranhas" at each stop actually scared me. I think Lucas was shocked too. As the crowd moved on to higher floors, suddenly Lucas asked to wear his costumes. 

We quickly grabbed the camera and took some pics with him and his costume. He started smiling again. Fuh!

The next day, we brought the costume over to my cousin's place and he wore it again for a bit... :) and finally, aunt Sha gets to take pic with him.
