"Ogres Are Like Onions"

Yeah...our Halloween pics are finally up! Since my hubby forget his camera on trick or treat night, we had to use my brothers digital. Then we had to get the right cord for it to transfer the pics to our computer. What a pain!!!

Anyway, as you can see the boy and I did a Shrek theme with him as Shrek and me as Fiona (when she was a big ogre of course!). I originally thought about doing a Star Wars theme, but the Vader costume was just too expensive and I couldn't find a Yoda costume for the boy. As I was looking through costumes at a nearby store, I found the dress I am wearing below. It was some sort of Renaissance outfit, but I thought it would be a perfect Fiona dress! I got it for a great deal (30% off) and then went looking for my son's Shrek outfit. I also found it at a great price!

I thought the boy looked so cute especially since he has a Shrek belly...heehee! I was sure to buy it big so he could wear it again if he wanted to. And my dad was loving our costumes! He is a huge Shrek fan and can quote a good majority of both movies. So he had a good laugh when we came in the door dressed the way we were!

Oh, my sis was going to be the ass (Donkey), but then decided to do Puss In Boots. We (as in me) found a cape, hat, and cat tail for cheap! She wore all that plus her high black boots and I put orange streaks in her hair. She looked pretty good, but only wore it for a half an hour. Party pooper!!!

Here is a pic of my hubby...Mr. Jack O. Lantern. I think it suited him...heehee!

Just out of curiosity, how is it that your husband got out of wearing a Shrek-related costume?

Hi there - here via Michele's.

Your costumes are adorable! Getting the pics off your brother's camera may have been a pain, but well worth it.

Cute costumes. I had not saw anyone dressed up in Shrek themed costumes till now... Yeah, I agree but not because I think your hubby is an arse (as I don't know him) but I think it wouldn't be too great to have him matching in the donkey suit! Hehehe

Wonderful job with the costumes! Shrek was a great idea. I did not see any Shrek ones. I like to see original ideas, yours definately was!
