I have to say this years costumes were a huge success! I was really worried on how each would come out. Both girls decided on what they wanted to be at the very last minute. To make matters worse, money was already tight with the birthday party we had for Piper last week and with the water heater that decided to give out on us... Yea?
So you can imagine I was relieved that most of Chloie's costume was from pieces we already had. I have to say for only spending about $10 on some makeup, a scarf, a belt, and earrings I'm pretty impressed with the out come. She looked so grown up!
Piper's costume, however, I did make from scratch. The only thing I didn't 100% make was the dress. I only sewed on embellishments. I lucked out and had some of the fabric on hand. Piper's costume cost about $40 for materials. The bonnet was made from a thrifted straw hat that I cut up and covered. I completely winged it making the bloomers and capelet. I have to say I'm really pleased with the outcome. She was stopped by everyone we passed.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween! Did you do anything special? Did you dress up? I'd love to hear what you did. I was thankful that the weather was surprisingly warm for Colorado. Last year was miserable outside!
Take Care & Enjoy,
