Happy Halloween from Woody

I know it's a day early, but I couldn't resist sharing these pictures today. So, Happy Halloween from Sheriff Woody!

2015 has definitely been the year of Toy Story around here, and Harry decided he wanted to be Buzz Lightyear for Halloween months ago. Then over the summer he had a change of heart, and wanted to be Jessie. Then switched back to Buzz a month later.

I Googled and Googled DIY Buzz costumes and the whole thing just seemed so intimidating to me. Plus, I wasn't sure how the wings would hold up through a preschool Halloween party.I found an adorable Buzz costume on the Disney Store's website, so I asked Harry if he wanted to buy his costume, or if he wanted me to make it. He said he wanted me to make it. Awww... and as I'm never one to crush dreams, I suggested we make a Woody costume instead, and he loved the idea. So, that day we went to the store to get the supplies so he couldn't change his mind again.

The costume was pretty easy to put together and turned out so cute! I made the vest from a McCall's pattern and the belt was my own design. Everything else I purchased, either Target or Amazon. 

Oh, and here's my favorite part of the whole costume.

The pull string! I tried to be as authentic as I could with the costume. The only thing that isn't exact is his shirt. I couldn't find a yellow and red plaid shirt, but I think the yellow one works just as well.

We're crossing our fingers that the weather holds up tomorrow so we can go trick-or-treating. Even if it rains, I think we'll at least hit a couple houses in the neighborhood since we didn't get to go at all last year (weather was terrible and Harry was sick).

Have a great Halloween!
