Wow your kids are really lucky! Most of my costumes came from K-Mart when I was a kid.
Yeah, me too, if that. I got dressed up in a lot of my sports uniforms as a kid and went as ... me on Saturdays

It's definitely a blessing and a curse
I always try pretty hard.
Well, I said no more pics until the whole thing is done, but it turns out I lied.
We're heading down to the wire and here's one of those things that I'll probably wish was done better but we don't have time to be picky.
My wife and I (mostly her) worked on a crown for the king.
and here it is decorated slightly with dollar store jewels
a $4 crown!
We would have liked to done more with the crowns but since we're not really kings and queens and these are props, that most will never really look at, it should work. In the end, these will just get put in the old costume pile anyway
I've been trying to grow a beard for the past 6 weeks. I thought it might look better for the king to have a beard. I'm not so sure it really does anything for the outfit, but it does make me look a bit older.
We still need to do my wife's head piece and finish a cape for me. If that can get done in the next couple days, we'll make the deadline!
