I've decided I'm only making one costume this year. And here's the deal:
My little model now has her own opinions.
This means that she currently will not stand still to have her picture taken and wrestling her in and out of clothes has become much more difficult. I'm actually not convinced I can get her into one costume.
Now comes the task of deciding what this year's costume will be. And I need your help.
Here are some contenders (click on links for DIY inspiration as I did not want to post other's photos):
Jessie from Toy Story.
I would not have considered this one, until I was at the Disney Store and saw this hat. There's no way that I'm buying Disney's paper-thin, over-priced polyester costume, but I think I could make a pretty cute version. For inspiration, look here and here.
Little Red Riding Hood. Yes, this would be a repeat from last year. But I may not be able to resist a new red cape. Cute versions here and here.
Wonder Woman. Another repeat, but if I had it my way she might just be WW every year until she screams, "Enough already!" But I have a couple of ideas to raise the bar on last year's WW: here and here. Really cute variations here and here
Alice in Wonderland. I don't know. Is it too boring? Chasing Fireflies has a really cute version. And then there's this.
Pebbles Flinstone. The problem with Pebbles is that it's a warm weather costume. I'm afraid that with cool weather accessories, the look would be completely off. But it could be oh so cute.
Peacock. I think this would be very cute but seems utterly impractical. But this DIY version has been killing me.
I have a lot of others stored away in my Halloween pinboard on Pinterest. Go take a look if you are interested!
