Fairy Halloween Costume

    This year, 2015, Sophia wanted a fairy costume, but not just any costume.  She had a vision.  She knew what colors and how it would look.  She wanted a floral headpiece with ribbons, a vest, and the ribbons on her legs were actually my idea.

Cowgirl Halloween Costume

  Last year, in 2014, Sophia decided she wanted to be a cowgirl.  We have a costume, which her mother wore for an ice skating competition years ago.  I had to replace the elastic and restitch a few places, but it looked pretty cute in the end.  I had to order some silver gray cowboy boots online.  We couldn’t find a silver hat, so after removing the silver tiara on it,  I spray painted her bright pink hat silver and added some royal blue sequined trim.  It was the finishing touch.

Little Red Riding Hood Halloween Costume

   This Little Red Riding Hood outfit was adorable, but I cut the tulle into strips for the skirt and the white apron.  You see so many of those made that way.  Well, as you can see in the picture of the kids standing in line, the tulle kept creeping up horribly!  Even if I combed it down with my fingers, it had crept back up in no time.Little Red Riding Hood Halloween Costume on MyHumbleHomeandGarden.com

    I learned my lesson and will gather tulle from now on and never use the cut and tie method!

    The crushed red velvet cape was lined in satin.  It was adorable.  I used a pattern for this, but extended the length and, unlike the pattern, lined the hood and cape.
