i just finished gracie’s new and improved tinkerbell costume. i’m pretty happy with it, although the fit still isn’t quite how i’d like it to be. i think the hair, shoes, and wings make up for what’s lacking in the dress. silas’ pirate costume is next….

    Did you make the wings too?

    Super cute. But won’t she be cold?

    What are your halloween plans?

    jeannett –
    nope, didn’t make the wings.

    hopefully she won’t be cold. we’re flying to mexico with my family on the 31st, and we thought it would be fun for all the kids to dress up on the plane. but we will be going to farmer’s market on the thursday before halloween. i didn’t think about the cold temperature for that night when i made the costume. maybe tinkerbell will be wearing sweats that night!

    Her costume is soo cute!!! She looks adorable as tinkerbell! You did a great job – can’t wait to see the little pirate. I have had Morgan wear pj’s that coordinated with her costumes before if it was too cool on Halloween night. When we lived in MN, that was often teh case – hats, mittens, etc.. It will be so fun to have the kiddos all dressed up on the airplane!

    maybe if you found her some skin colored tights that are pretty thick, that might help, or a skin colored unitard, it could help keep her warm.

    PS. I may go to farmers that week, just to see your kids!! :0)
