In fact, the church's fall festival started at 6:30 and I finished the costumes at 6:00.
Nothing like doing it all at the very last minute!
The boys' costumes were ... well... they looked a lot like their everyday selves. B went as a guy from Minecraft and The Boy was sick, so he didn't even dress up. Tomorrow, he's planning on wearing the same costume he wore last year and hand out the candy.
Little Miss wanted to be Pinkie Pie and I totally had a "pinned it, nailed it" moment with the costume. Here's the original blogger...
And here's what we ended up with:
Punky Brewster was set on being Little Dead Riding Hood. For this one, we just raided the costume box.
The most successful of our costumes this year belonged to Danger Girl and Leelee.
Danger Girl initially wanted to be a crash test dummy, but honestly, that costume was far above my skill level. So, yesterday she decided she wanted to be a mustache. She's a bit mustache obsessed lately.
I really love how this turned out. It's so fun! The great part is, since I made it out of sturdy foam board, when we're done with the costume, it's going to make a really fun art piece for her room. She really wanted a giant mustache pillow, but agreed that just hanging it on her wall would be fine, too.
Leelee's costume was one that had me pulling my hair a bit. She dressed as Kiki from Kiki's Delivery Service.
The costume itself wasn't hard. But finding a pattern for a basic A-line dress was. I finally found a pattern Monday. When I came home and went to my sewing closet to get the pins, I found a stack of patterns I picked up at a thrift store. Three patterns in, I found the perfect A-line dress. So...I could have had this dress done much, much sooner if I had bothered to check the patterns I already owned!
