Halloween! I have never been a fan of dressing up for Halloween. There has been a Halloween or 2 that I did something but never elaborate and usually last minute. However, once I had my first daughter, my sister quickly stepped in to make sure her costumes were 1. AWESOME and 2. handmade! For the past 4 years, she has done amazing work! (scroll to end of post for line up of past Halloween costumes ALL hand sewn by my sister "Aunt G")
This year with 2 very opinionated little girls...we had to wait until we could get them to commit to what they wanted before starting. This didn't leave my sister much time to get both done so I stepped in and took over creating CGRs. My sewing skills are limited. I can sew but not very good and I need support and guidance, which my sister provided me. I don't know about you but I think it came out perfectly! For her costume, I ordered her leotard online and painted the wonder woman emblem on the front using some puff paint.
tutorial and then painted the white stars using puff paint. I had my sister help me with the bottom edge because she has a serger and she's better at things like that.
All in all it was fun to create and CGR loved watching it come to life! I'm so glad I stepped in to make this one...not sure I will do the same next year but I'm glad I did.
My sister did Ria's Belle costume using this tutorial and this came out so perfectly! Ria was SOO excited about it and woke me up the day after Halloween dressed in it. BTW, she did not go to bed in it.
The set up of our house! After the girls went trick or treating, they sat and watched the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, The nightmare before Christmas, Room on a Broom, and much more on that screen. They were up WAY past their bedtime!
