Now I remember why I don't make Halloween costumes very often. It takes too much time.
Age10 has been wanting to be a Snow Queen for years, ever since her friend was one some time back. This year I finally undertook it. Wrong year to do that, what with the church play I was in and helping to direct, the time that took and the time to make costumes for it etc. and the Primary program I was in charge of last week as well, things were just very busy and I had no time for extra stuff. Anyway I loved making it for her.
I had no pattern just went off of my vision, but I wasn't able to really make it work so well. It still turned out ok though. She ended up calling herself a Snow Princess instead. It's Dark blue crush velvet with sparkly white 'satin' and snow flakes around the blue skirt. White crush velvet cloak with hood. It has a massive hem so she can wear it for years to come!
And here is my Age 6, Iron Man, luckily he didn't mind not having home made and probably liked store bought better. I didn't get him with his mask on though. Age14 went as a ninja but I never got a picture, he was more last minute. I wish I had gotten a picture of him and his friends though.
