SUYL Halloween Costumes

Today I'm linking up with Kelly from Kelly's Korner Blog! The theme for the link up this week is Halloween Costumes and I was already planning a post on Bennett Grace's costume so it worked out perfectly!!

This is Bennett Grace's first Halloween so I really wanted her to look super cute for all the pictures we will no doubt take of her. I searched the internet and by the internet I of course mean Etsy and Pinterest and I could not find ANYTHING. I took my search to Google and then looked it the local stores and again NOTHING. Everything I could find in her size was plastic looking or straight up tickity-tack and I was not about to go there so in my final attempt I took it to Pinterest one more time and came across a picture of these two girls in Loofa Costumes. I thought oooooooh that would totally work for BGT so I ventured to Hobby Lobby and picked up a few things.

I will say that I tried to use their directions and just size them down, but they simply didn't work for a baby so basically I took the inspiration and that was about it. It wasn't very difficult, surprisingly. So here it is! The final product is pretty cute if I say so myself and BGT looooooves it. I thought she would after she had so much fun playing with the tulle in her 6 month photo session :)

Disclaimer- these were taken with my iPhone (as usual) so the photo quality is pretty poor and I could not capture a picture of a smile without it blurring to save my life.
