Halloween Costumes & Cupcakes

Here ya go... our Halloween costumes!

Simon & Jonas were both characters from the movie Beetlejuice. Never seen it or has it been a while? I found this YouTube clip that has both of their characters in it:

Here's Jonas as Betelgeuse:
The ghost with the most! Betel-Jones!

And Simon as a Sandworm:

Simon as the thing that eats Betelgeuse at the end

I sewed Simon's costume myself with the last bit of black & white striped fabric that the fabric store had, some green fabric& polyester fiberfill for the mouth, zebra print foamy paper stuff for teeth and red poms for eyes. Jonas' costume is the tux Simon wore in some weddings this summer with white duct tape and the sleeves and pants cuffs tucked under.

The boys together

Now before I show you my and Chase's costumes, you need to watch this video (or at least some of it because only one person at the party we went to got it):

And now the costumes (including our friend Feng who was part of our trio):

Feng, Chase & me as the Beastie Boys as actors as 70's type detective characters from their Sabotage video

Our costumes came from a combination of our closets, Goodwill, Wal-marts, and one of the Halloween stores.

Now something that needs no explanation, the Halloween monster cupcakes I made for the party on Friday:

Chocolate cupcakes with homemade buttercream icing in Halloween skull wrappers!

Happy Halloween!
