SO, after being slammed with a freak snowstorm I was extremely grateful that our new town decided to schedule trick or treating for the 28th. Our power was out for over 24 hours, our internet was out for over 48 hours.... But we did get to go out door to door before the snow started defying the season and ripping down tree limbs.
My mom made it to our house for the evening to cover the candy-giving while we took our little monster out and to witness the awesomeness of her creation.
I had found this costume on this lady's blog over a year ago and knew in my heart that it would be perfect for Riley.
We bought a pattern and did what was recommended - combining the dinosaur pattern with the panda pattern and a little bit of the devil. I tracked down the supplies, my mom sewed it together, I took care of the horns and the finishing touches -- I also Monster-ed up some hoodies for Greg and me. Check it out:
