The girls got all dressed up at the end of October. I had not put any thought into costumes until October was almost over. And I wasn't getting any great ideas. Until I saw a cute little Dorothy costume at the amazing children's consignment shop we have downtown. *cough*Laura*cough* And it was just Elaina's size. I was already thinking Chloë would probably prefer to do something frilly and girly, so a Glenda-the-Good-Witch costume was perfect. My friend Betsy loaned us a perfect pink princess dress.
I made Chloë a crown.
Elaina's hair was long enough to put into two little pig tails.
I covered a cheap star wand with silver glitter paint.
Off to the Harvest Festival we went. There were lots of fun costumes, and games, and candy.
And we even got a picture with Amara, who was dressed up as the Wicked Witch of the West.
The girls had such a great time. We are still eating the candy.
I just have to show you how I made Chloë's fabulous Glenda crown. It took sooo long. I actually had a hard time finding good pictures online of what the crown was really supposed to look like. I made a prototype out of paper, and then bought silver card stock and silver glitter paint, pulled out my press-on rhinestones, and got to work.
