October monthly theme: Halloween from the cast of Wizard of Oz!

Happy Halloween everyone! As mentioned in my previous post, our family went as the cast of Wizard of Oz this year. The TinMan costume was finally done, and the husband was on board with dressing up, silver paint and all. The dogs cooperated and even Chewy our blond Yorkie/Maltese dog got into character for this. Molly, presumed cocker spaniel/poodle mix had been growing her mane since February. Kyla had her ruby slippers ready. And the scarecrow was played by myself. This was probably the most labor intensive monthly theme so far!

Toto:

Our blond Yorkie/maltese was spray painted black using PetPaint (http://www.petpaint.com/)

Scarecrow:

I made the green top by tracing an existing sweater, made the hat using felt, and the thing-around-the-neck (what do you call it?) using a natural colored fabric and elastic band.
