Hallowe’en 2017

Is in a mere six sleeps my excited children tell me. I suppose I had better get moving else I’ll be pestered to death.

The youngest, W (who is six and a quarter) assembled her own costume from the dress-up bin and I appreciate her self-sufficiency. She’ll be Red Riding Hood wearing a fancy red ball gown. And a now-tiny hooded cape I made for her sister at Hallowe’en 2009 when she was RRH.

B. on the other hand (a very wise and all-knowing 10 and a half) was angling for Katara from Avatar:

First time I’ve ever vetoed a costume. Second choice is a unicorn apparently. I also vetoed the slutty ladies “unicorn” costume she wanted to match one of her best friends. (You know the kind, the sexy-fill-in-the-profession/hobby/character/food).

We’re both excited about the compromise, turning this ladies XL sweater into something magical.


As purchased. The “BEFORE” picture.


These were sleeves, if you are not familiar with garment construction. 

I’m two steps past this point. I took a picture of me wearing it to check the fit but it was a ridiculous sight. Stay tuned for further adventures in home costuming!
