Being 29 weeks pregnant on Halloween has surely limited my options this year. No one wants to see a sexy nurse or Cinderella with a baby bump.
So because of this, I decided to get a little creative with my costume and make it myself. Since I hope to never be this size again, I didn’t want to spend money on a pre-made costume or materials to make a super expensive one. With Zach being away, Nolan and I call ourselves “the duo”; it’s just the two of us! So I wanted to do something to play off that…
And that’s why I came up with a S’more costume! It was super easy to make and low budget… just how I like it! Although my original plan was to have him be the graham/chocolate and my fluffy pregnant self be the marshmallow, getting a two year old to pose is like stepping into a rodeo with a wild bull. It ain’t easy, people.
I was only able to get one picture of him and without me so with a few alterations, I became a s’more on my own 🙂
Cottonelle Triple Roll (2 rolls)
Brown felt (5 pieces)
Hot glue gun
Burlap (it’s what I already had but you could use ribbon, string, etc)
Using the tape and the toilet paper, I wrapped around the hoop to cover it and then went the opposite direction across it. If it broke while wrapping, I simply tucked it under, taped somewhere new and started again!
For the cookie/chocolate, I cut the sides of a box and used the scissors to make little indents like the graham cracker. It was originally made to fit Nolan so I probably would have kept it a little larger had I known he was going to be difficult!
I then glued the felt around the edges, just peeking out slightly. I kept them in squares to make it look like a piece off of a candy bar!
And last but not least, I cut straps of burlap and glued them to wear over my dress. Voila, you have a s’more! Campfire anyone?!
