Both Marisol and Flynn decided they want to dress as pirates this year for Halloween.
I think Flynn's been a pirate three times already, it seems to be his thing, but for the last two years I've handmade costumes for him - Mr Bump and LEGO Lord Vampyre. I'm sure I could have thrown together a DIY costume for him this year, but I decided to just purchase a new pirate shirt for him (from Party City), pair it with black pants that were already in his closet and re-use his pirate hat, hook and eye patch from previous years. So simple.
I was actually surprised though when Marisol suggested The Pirate Fairy to me, and of course she did this only a couple of days before we were headed to a social media event where the kids had been asked to wear costumes.
Nevertheless it came together quite well.
The best part, I only needed to purchase one item for it, the rest we already had.
