We try to keep the costumes on the cheaper end, and this year we even DIYed part of ours! Can you guess what we're going to be?
If you were a child that watched Nickelodeon in the 90s then you might remember a game show called Legends of the Hidden Temple. It was part physical activity part quiz show and when the teams won temple games they were rewarded with a Pendent of Life.
Thanks to the powers of google, I was able to find and print the symbol on the medallion and then use the graphic transfer trick that I used for our fingerprint tree to get it on to the wood.
I thought I could just trace one and transfer it to both circles, but sadly that was not the case. My hand did not thank me after tracing and shading twice.
A little paint later and all that's left is to glue on some left over ribbon.
Sending Chris a picture of my work
Next up were the gloves and elbow pads. At $7.95 & $9.95 a pair respectively ($35.80 plus shipping), buying them online would not be ideal.
We headed over to Walmart where we found the gloves in a 2 pack for $1.40 and decided to McGuyer some elbow pads out of black men's socks. And bonus, Chris can wear the 4 left over pairs of socks. He stepped in to burn off the edges to keep them from unraveling.
Are you dressing up for Halloween? If so, what are you going to be?
