Halloween Costumes: Homemade Edition – Joke In A Box

Halloween costumes in our house has always been purchased and if luckily for us, re-used for a few years in a row.  Maebh has not even asked for a new costume and will dress in one of her many Frozen dresses. Soren who has been Captain America for two years in a row has come up with a make your own costume with Nils.

The concept began with him saying he wanted to be a joker so he can tell jokes as last year at every house he’d tel the same joke… “Why did the toilet paper roll down the hill?  To get to the bottom!”

So instead of a joker, he is a JOKE IN A BOX, which needed to have a curtain in front of hole where candy is inserted to hear a joke.  Whats more is that behind the curtain s a pumpkin pail which he used last year for his trick-or-treating.

Here are the photos of the creation of the costume. I will post more photos on Halloween night. For now he’s thrilled to wear it to school on Friday.

And Maebh tried on the costume.
The night was hugely successful – he had tons of jokes, loads of candy!

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

A Boston girl currently living in Dublin, Ireland snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journeys from the USA to the UK. We were there for a couple years then onto Ireland for the past 3+ years. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is 1/2 American & 1/2 Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring Europe and beyond with our two amazing kids. It’s essentially a journal of our family.
