Michael is obsessed with a video game Minecraft. Heard of it? No? Then you haven't been within a 5 mile radius of a 10 year old boy lately. Think Legos on an epic scale, everything is square.

This is the Halloween costume I made for Michael, it's a Creeper, a Minecraft bad guy. We had a school Fall Fun Night a couple weeks ago.
I got the idea from Wonder How To: Halloween Ideas, they posted a variety of paper configurations to glue onto the boxes I snagged from recycle. Michael and his friends loved it!

Next up was Michael's Birthday party, and the fabulous invite I found at Flufflepot. Not only was the invite super awesome, her blog about her and her own son's fascination with Minecraft is flippin' hilarious.
To complete the Minecraft shenanigans, I had a Minecraft cake made to order (I am not that good of a cake decorator) from Kleaver Kreations.
This is what a cake looks like in the game, and the box to the left was the party favors filled with Minecraft related items. All in all we had an awesome party (Laser Tag), and the boys LOVED the Minecraft theme.


  1. Wow! How will you ever top this one???

  2. We will have to see what next year's obsession is!

  3. Hello, thanks for the shout-out. You did a great job on the costume and the cake! :)
