Halloween Post: Who you gonna call??!!!

This year we introduced Aki to our favorite movies and shows from the 80’s and 90’s. I was not surprised at all when he begged for a Voltes V costume. I initially said yes, thinking a Steve costume would be easy peasy. But no! Aki clarified that he wanted to be the robot with matching laser sword, ultramagnetic top and all the other effects. Last year, he made it clear that he was disappointed when we settled for a viking costume instead of the 4 headed dragon that he really wanted. If he is going to be like his cousins, I figured that Aki will only dress up for Halloween until he is eight. He will only be a kid once so I really wanted to grant his Halloween wish. Based on my research, the costume seemed challenging but doable. Thankfully, Aki changed his mind. I was relieved when he decided that he wanted to be Ghostbuster instead.

As early as mid-September, we already started on the proton pack. 


We truly enjoyed paper mache-ing and painting. I love that Aki is now old enough to help in making his costumes.

  1. hi, maqui! you really are so creative! my little one was also asked to come to school in a “homemade” halloween costume, eh since i have zero talent in making costumes, i had her lola sew one for her! she came as a starbucks frap! aki’s so lucky to have a very resourceful and creative mom. my sadie naman, lucky to have a seamstress for a lola and a very demanding mommy! 🙂 super cute ninyong tatlo! 🙂
