Logan & Pheonix
Logan…without the CLAWS. People always think Jase looks like wolverine…I think its the hair. AND so this year, he played true to his role! No one really knew who I was…but I took the outfit less recognized..the comic book one.

Klai absolutely LOVEd being Rogue, she would tell people that she would SUCK their powers away. SO awesome…I love it when a kid REALLY grasps their role!

Cost: $6.50 total. $5 for black gloves.  $1.50 for half a can of hair color. Clothes were leotard & leggings from her wardrobe. Black shoe covers made from old lining of a skirt.

Storm
Rykel talked about it for days/weeks, but when the time came to take pictures, she was quite embarrassed and gave us the hardest time posing. BUT her costume turned out the BEST! I really hoped she enjoyed the coolness of how she looked.

COST: TOTAL $4.50. $3 for white gloves. $1.50 – half a can of hair color spray. Her outfit was the most fun to make! She had a pink leotard that I bleached white. We borrowed white leggings. I turned an old white pillowcase into her cape and shoe covers. Yellow accessories came from extra yellow fabric from the stash. THIS was an awesome costume!

Wolverine
Shae loved it. AND I must say I had a great epiphany with those claws….some old mittens and Rubber slippers and BOOM Wolverine claws! I’m the bomb!

FREE – his costume although it was NOT homemade was free for doing a review on a companys product. His claws were made from old mittens and an old slipper. 

Beast
Wyatt really enjoyed his part. HIS costume was SIMPLE! he loved his furry feet and fake glasses, but the best part was his face in pictures. He got into it.

Cost – $1 for half a tube of face paint. His outfit came from Sunday Clothes. I made furry feet out of old socks and batting and some blue paint I had lying around. Glasses were given to us and

Baby Mystique
Evee was the best with face paint and coloring her hair. WHAT a trooper, she would just sit there while I painted her. THIS day was not the best for the paint, she kept wanting to snuggle and get her paint on things…Halloween night she kept it on better. WHAt a cutie pie. SHe got the most laughs and appreciation of cuteness.

COST – TOTAL$4.  $3 for can of hair color. $1 for half a tube of blue face paint. Her clothes I dyed blue and used puffy paint and face paint to give her that mystique look.

Halloween night: I was concerned with all the rain, that my children with painted faces would get rained on and it would run into their eyes…so WE went to the Mall’s Safe Trick-o-Treat! And we saw some awesome costumes our selves.
