Owen and Silas, Halloween 2014

The boys picked their own costumes this year, the only exception was we had to make them ourselves and nothing would be purchased. Owen is Harry Potter. Silas is Luke Skywalker.

It should be noted that neither of them have seen Harry Potter or Star Wars. They've learned about them from books and Lego.

We had everything in our house already, with the exception of a borrowed magic wand and a borrowed lightsaber. Owen's cape is made from a black t-shirt of Papa's. Silas' is wearing a zip-up of mine. 

Here they are doing their best poses and making their most fierce faces. 

At Halloween, we're not about getting huge loads of candy, we're about playing dress up on the one day a year it's publicly acceptable.
