Halloween 'Costumes'...

...in parenthesis because you can hardly call them costumes. More like an ordinary dress and long-sleeved vest. 5 points if you can guess what/who we were supposed to be.








Here be clues:





I wouldn't blame you if you missed it completely. Nobody at Nikhita's playgroup (where the Halloween party was) knew either. Only after they were told did they have the "oh ya!" moment.

Anti-climactic.

The important thing is that I enjoyed making the Buttercup dress (but made quite a mess of my vest which I couldn't care less about but good thing you can't see it), and I chose it purely because (a) it was easy to make, (2) I could use remnants from my stash, and thirdly, I could mostly wear my own stuff and be part of her costume as well. Shames me to consider the efforts others have put into their daughters' costumes. It's a good thing Halloween isn't a real big deal here (no trick-or-treating, phew!). If we have to dress up again next year, I promise I'll let the kid choose what she wants to be.

Now on to Christmas sewing!

  1. Darling! Thanks for the link. I hardly call it effort, though. My mother could tell just from the fotos IMMEDIATELY what was wrong with Kate's. Could you tell? It was glaringly obvious to me, of course, since I meddled with it so much and messed it up big time and mum saw it right away (and tried to break the news to me gently, bless her)! Ha ha ha! Nikhita's costume turned out really, really nice and fits her way better than K's does. Grrrr. And yours! Oh, it brings back good memories of that yellow-and turquoise blouse-suit you made when we were young: the one with the cute little bowtie. It's a brilliant costume ensemble. I don't watch the Powerpuffs myself so your clues helped. Enjoy this phase while it lasts - when N lets YOU pick the costume to make, I mean. I hope when she gets older and more opinionated. she'll veer away from the Old Borings (princess, fairy, ugh) to something fun!
    Off to put the smalls down for naps (YES!) now.

  2. Forgot to add: I had NO costume. I went as SAHM. The small child's glove and random plastic toys in my pocket (that no one could see, pity) were a nice detail, though.
