Guns 'n' Roses

This is what happens when you guide your family into a certain costume direction and it turns out incredibly right:
Halloween is my favorite.
Welcome to the jungle, my friends. 
We were Guns 'n' Roses! No, my kids don't exactly know who they are, but they understand rockstars. And they recognize the brilliance of a good electric guitar solo.
And they can sing a mean "Sweet Child of Mine" line. 
Here we have Axl Rose, Izzy Stradlin (with browner, curlier hair), and Slash.
My family is awesome.
When I finished straightening Tessa's hair and tied on the bandana, I burst out laughing. Spot on.

At home, working out the costume:
 We worked on the Axl sway dance. Slash was obviously a hit.
 I dare you to find an image funnier than a baby wearing a wig.
 Trunk or Treat over at our church was a success, and so was the youth led Halloween carnival afterwards. We had a great time and made several people laugh --which made our costumes entirely worth it. Cole and Paige lasted a full 50 minutes with the wigs, which is impressive.
Hope you had a happy and rockin' Halloween.
