halloween costume series :: chicken and the egg

Next costume... the chicken and the egg! We did it!!! We finally answered the infamous question... Which came first? The chicken or the egg?




I had seen the chicken costume idea on Martha several years ago, but we stepped it up a notch with the baby. Aubrey was only about 7 weeks old so it worked out perfectly! You know the amoeba-like age, when they just lay around and don't do much. Definitely not into trick-or-treating, but you don't want to completely exclude them? Well, that was my self-inflicted debate anyway. So, the egg is what we came up with. And it was the EASIEST costume ever. We already had both a white sleeper and hat, so all I had to do was cut out a yellow circle for the yolk. Temporarily tape it on and we were good to go for a few pictures.

As I said, the chicken costume was from a Martha idea several years ago. When I saw it, I knew I had to hold onto it for future use. The chicken feet were what sold me. Can you tell what they are!? Yeap, kitchen cleaning gloves!!! Genius, right!? We fit them over a pair of Crocs and it worked beautifully! The white boa body was also just irresistible! The costume did have some elusive items to find. The white pilot's cap was the trickiest. Let me do the leg work for you... available here at Hannah Anderson. And believe it or not, the long sleeve white onesies (or leotards), were another obscure item to find.

I always try and give credit where credit is due. As I told you before, sewing is NOT my strong suit. Their two grandma's get all the credit for the sewing parts.

I also think it's ironic that today's post is about chickens.... I'm currently "running around like a chicken with it's head cut off!!!!!" Sorry, couldn't resist, but it is true.


Okay, now look at this picture - it cracks me up! The stare down. When I look at this picture, I just imagine them saying...
"No, I was first!"
"Nooooo, I was first!!"
"Balk, balk, baaaalk"
"Come on! Or are you too chicken!?"

So adorable! I don't celebrate Halloween, but I have to share this! LOL I was thinking a cute idea for a group of siblings, would be a cupcake, a bag of flour, a bag of sugar (pillowcases), and a carton of cocoa made from a cardboard box. :)
