Halloween According to Team Ibrahim

The hubs and I have always wanted to go to a fun Halloween party. I know, it seems like a reasonable request, but for some reason it's never happened! Before you get all "awe, they don't have any friends"--it's not that we haven't been invited--we have, but for some reason our schedules never worked out and it never happened.

Except for this year. This year, we were invited for a week vacation to Cabo to celebrate the beach wedding of two of our friends (pictures to come) and Halloween just happened to fall during that week.  So, as you can imagine, we were so excited for the chance to celebrate the holiday with 20 friends (some we knew, but mostly new friends), the bride and groom, and in an AHHH-Mazing house (pictures to come). 

So without further's our get-up.

We secretly placed our 'family photos' around the house. Some got it right away, it took a couple of days for some, and some wanted to know when they missed out on arts and crafts.

This picture just cracks me up. Business as usual.

We had such a great time!

This was such an easy and inexpensive couple's costume. Here's what we used:

Long Sleeve White T-shirt
White Pants
White Gloves
White, Red, and Green Craft Foam
Mask Kit from Target
Black Duct Tape
White Duct Tape
Velcro Tabs
Super Glue

We used the white duct tape to cover any labels or branding on our pants and shirts. Then we tore the black tape in half (width-wise) and in lengths needed for the 'stick people details'. We drew the faces and cut them out. We used a little 'mask kit' from Target (think masquerade or mask that just covers the eyes). We used super glue to glue the plain mask to the back of our cut-out faces. The reason we did this was to avoid having the elastic tied to the front of the face. We made a few accessories like his Mexican beer and my purse and attached the 'stick baby' with velcro. And, that's it! 

Hope you had a FUN Halloween too!
