Back from Space




Seems like I've been gone a long while. Probably because I have been. Sorry about that. It's because we had a really long super fast trip to outer space and back... especially when you've got four costumes to get ready umm... space experts with you. Nevertheless, we're all home and re-acclimating ourselves to earth. (Read this as: we're about to do some schoolwork at 3pm. Sigh.)

Our space experts. (Finley, Diego, Cruz and Eliana)

Helios System Rio
(Thrifted jammies with planet stickers, a frisbee, and an upside down Christmas ornament)

Space Commander Diego
(Vintage PowerRangers costume, hacked up baseball helmet with a bunch of "extras", Gatorade bottle rocket boosters, foil covered rain boots, and a vintage space gun.) 

Intergalactic Princess Eliana
(Children's Place leggings, thrifted shirt and belt, foil covered rain boots, spray painted water gun, mask off of a cheapy knight's helmet and other embellishments used to assemble the head piece.)

Space Cadet  Cruz
(Carters PJ bottoms, thrifted snow boots, vintage jacket with sticker embellishments, the remained portion of the knight's helmet with "extras" and a Radio Flyer rocket ship.)

Here's a look at the previous years costumes:
