Jack, Zero, and Scary Teddy: Halloween

My cousin has such a gift.
Let me back up a bit. I love my cousin. Very very much. (You might remember her from her maternity shoot about a month ago). Anywho. I’ve written before about how she was the one who pushed me into photography. I’m so thankful that she saw something in me and encouraged me to pursue it. Well, now I am VERY CLEARLY seeing the gift she has been given!! Kalie made these costumes from SCRATCH. No sample, no pattern, no nothing. Just an idea in her head. I mean who on earth can create costumes like this with no sewing education or sample? She is so creative and absolutely gifted and talented. The quality of her work is amazing and she doesn’t skimp on the details.
If I had it my way Kalie would open up an Etsy store and spend her days crafting away at cool and unique costumes for kids. There has got to be a huge market filled with cool parents who want their kids to be something rad for halloween. And by rad I don’t mean, Spiderman, a pirate, or the Hulk. I’m talking Edgar Allen Poe, The Raven, and Frankenstein (which are all costumes she has made for her kids).
If you guys think Kalie should open up a store PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW ENCOURAGING HER TO DO SO!!

Enjoy this very quick and impromptu photoshoot we did of her boys Danny, Neko, and Brixton as Jack Skellington, Zero, and Scary Teddy! AAAANNNNDDDD…. THERE’S A VIDEO! Danny was just so excited about being Jack that I couldn’t help but film he. He was in character. What 4 year old is in character?? My nephews are awesome.

Debbie Lucero - OK Kalie, I have been sewing for years and can’t do that WITH a pattern! You must be gifted, because even with classes, clothes sewing is complicated. These are incredible and you need to figure out how to develop your talent!

Chloe - These are so amazing!! I would love to ask you a few questions about how you made them if you have time. My son’s name is Jack and we do a Jack costume every year. This year we have decided to make him Jack Skellington and I would really love to be able to make a costume just like the one you made!! I can give you my email address if you have time to chat about it. :) Thanks!
