Twilight With A Classic Twist... / by Julie Cruz

A few weeks ago, my sister called me excitedly to tell me that she found an awesome kid's Werewolf costume (for my nephew, Isaac) at Marshall's for under $20. She already had a Dracula costume that she bought for my nephews' carnival party (Mason wore the suit as a Ringmaster's outfit). And with PJ's Bride of Frankenstein costume, we thought it would be fun to take some pictures of the kids together as these "classic" Halloween monsters. Then, since I had already done PJ's Bride Of Frankenstein pics, I thought it would be fun to do sort of a take on the werewolves versus vampires themes of Twilight or True Blood. So PJ became our "Bella" (but minus the jeans and flannel shirt ;) haha). The boys' costumes happened to have a lot of red/black...so we went the olden day/victorian style with PJ and I had her wear a vintage dress that she already had (which she wore in this little "at home" shoot) and added a red ribbon and apple for the final touch ;)

Getting a 5, 6 and 7 year old to "stay serious" for longer than a few seconds (especially with costumes) was tricky....so as you can see, there were lots of laughs and giggles as well ;)

So here are our little monsters, "Twilight with a classic twist"...

Happy (early) Halloween (again)!
