GWYNN-STONES, MEET THE GWYNN-STONES! So stoked to debut our 2020 family Halloween costume: The Flintstones!
Just dropping in quick to say HI HELLO HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Honestly, I was NOT a big Halloween person in the past. Granted, growing up we didn’t live in a development or anything where trick-or-treating was really a thing (we’d MAYBE have 3 trick-or-treaters TOPS in a night, many of which were teenagers in scary costumes, so as a little kid watching this I was a bit scarred I think – ha!). As a little kid I remember traveling up to see elderly relatives and “trick-or-treating” at their houses or nursing homes, which usually involved “working” for my treat – like reciting a Halloween poem or singing a song. So I think I got bitter as an adult when costume-less kids would just show up like “GIVE ME CANDY” – ha! 😉
But now with Liv able to participate, I’m here for it. And I’m happy to introduce our 2020 family Flintstones costume!
Last year, the Spice Gwynns came to town (you know…Old Spice, Pumpkin Spice, and Baby Spice? Ha!). I think that really spawned new life for Halloween in my heart, because it was so much fun to get creative with a family costume and take Liv out trick-or-treating. Granted, being in a development made all the difference since people actually DID go trick-or-treating, and Liv was adorable with it. One of us would hold her (she had only just turned one at the time) and she’d “crane” down into a bowl of candy to pick a piece. It was equal parts hilarious + adorable, and it’s safe to say the entire clan enjoyed the loot. 😉
This year, I’m STOKED. Granted, it still looks different than years past, but Liv now can obviously walk herself up to a table of candy and pick a piece (watch out, Reese’s). I know our neighborhood is taking various level of precaution while still allowing kids to partake in the fun as safely as possible, so I think most folks’ plan is to just have a long table in front of their house with contactless pickup of treats. Ha!
I knew a family Flintstones costume would be perfect since Liv most often has her hair in a cute little top ponytail just like Pebbles Flintstone, and I often rock a top knot like Wilma – and J just IS Fred Flinstone, you know? 😉 AND THEN I thought of the play on words with our last name and that was it, done deal, sold to the highest bidder because the Flintstones costume idea was a go.
I found ours on Amazon – here’s exactly what we got:
I will say, the Wilma Flintstone headpiece in the package is pathetic and leaves a LOT to be desired. For these being pieces of felt fabric, it’s entirely overpriced – but worth it for the perfect Flintstones family costume ensemble. Ha! 😉
