Mitchell Zoo Animals and Zoo Keeper Halloween

26 Oct

Zoo animal and zoo keeper Halloween Costumes

Well, here’s the finished Halloween Costumes that go with the animal trick or treat buckets I made. How awesome are they! My daughter, Katie (the Zoo Keeper), made the elephant, tiger and Zebra masks from patterns she bought from Wintercroft.com.  You need to check them out!

Their decorated campsite won 1st place at the Dayton KOA and Richmond campsites they stayed at!

elephant and tiger costumes

Her husband, Dave’s Elephant costume was a BIG hit and even won 1st Place during their Richmond Halloween event! At the Dayton KOA, little kids ran up to him and hugged him…oh, it was so sweet!

tiger costume and crocodile basket

Here’s my grandson, Kylan’s Tiger Costume. He loved it and never took off the mask!

In fact, he would hide behind a tree at their campsite and peek around it when the hayride drove past. That may have helped them win 1st Place.

pink pumpkin pigs

And don’t you just LOVE these pink pumpkin pigs! I just think they’re sooo cute! Katie worked really hard making all the masks and campsite decorations. Good job Honey!

Cheetah Halloween Costume

Here’s my granddaughter, Kinzley’s Cheetah costume. Isn’t she just a cutie! You should have seen her dancing at the Monster Bash. She could have danced all night, LOL!

Zebra and Zoo Keeper Halloween Costumes

Here’s my grandson’s, Caden’s Zebra costume along with his mom, the Zoo Keeper and dog Rocket, the Lion. Katie used a boa for Caden’s mane, which gently flowed behind him when he walked. Rocket got lots of compliments too and he never tried taking his costume off the whole time we were out walking.

Here’s the three grand kids…with Kinzley showing some “attitude”, hahaha!

My husband and I had so much fun walking around the campground with them, looking at all the great costumes and campsite decorations.

Another successful Halloween!

Happy Halloween Everyone!!

2016 Halloween Trick Or Treat Baskets

26 Oct

This year my job was to make the grandkids Halloween baskets to go with their Zoo Animal theme.  Their mom, Katie, is making all the Halloween costumes…boy is she doing an awesome job!  I can’t wait to show them to you.

rhino-halloween-basket

This Rhino trick or treat basket is for Caden.  He’s the first one I made and I was very happy with the results.  I kinda just winged it.  The head is a template I found online and increased the size.

crocodile-halloween-basket

This Crocodile trick or treat basket is for Kylan.  He too is made from felt with rick rack teeth and scales down his tail.  He is made from a sewing pattern I downloaded and adjusted for the basket.  

flamingo-halloween-basket

Lastly, this Flamingo trick or treat basket is for Kinzley.  It’s perfect because she just LOVES pink and I found out that her Halloween costume has no pink at all!  Like the other baskets, this one is made from felt.  I made all pattern pieces.

I also made the Giraffe, Hippo and Moose heads (shown above) to decorate their camper/campsite.  I had the felt and just couldn’t help myself!

Hope you all have a very Happy Halloween!
