This years costumes are finally finished! I’m so excited to show them off! I know they’re not as amazing as the costumes that some people make but I think they’re pretty cool.
The first costume I decided to make was armor. It actually took some convincing because my boy wanted to be a prince. But since I pretty much made a prince costume last year (in a way) I really didn’t want to have to do the same thing again. So I put on my best sales-woman approach and pulled out our “Narnia” collection book and sited all of the pictures that “The high King Peter” or “Prince Caspian” wear armor. It worked! He wanted armor after that. The funniest thing about the whole scenario is that he still wants to be called “A prince, in armor”.
Here he is, looking fierce!
I love his stance! So tough!
And because I never know when to quit….I also made some other accessories to make his costume more versatile.
Gritting his teeth with determination.
Now for the part that I’ve been waiting for my whole career as a mother! My little girl’s outfit! I have been wanting soooo badly to embellish clothing with glitter for years so I went all out and went crazy! (Some of the material actually came glittered already, which was helpful ;) ).
And here she is, my little Fall Fairy:
I’m so happy she kept the headband I made on. The trick was to tell her how pretty she looked the second I put it on and push her hands away from trying to take it off. I’ve had to do that every time I’ve put it on her, but it seems to work.
Back wing view!
Side view of her dress. I loved the little petals on this pattern…thus why I had to make it when I saw it (besides that it came in 1/2 size….not many patterns this cute do!)
So yes, I went a little crazy, and a little over-board. But the point is, I’ve also had a LOT of fun. :)
