This Halloween I was just going
to let the girls use princess
dress-up out of the playroom.
It was easy and it would save us money.
But Nixon put in pretty early that
she wanted to be Dorothy.
The girls LOVE The Wizard of Oz!
I had some left over blue gingham fabric and
she already had the red
sparkly shoes so I decided
I could easily make her a
costume for pretty cheap.
I think it cost me about $8 in tulle.
I assumed Isla would want to be the scarecrow
but she insisted she wanted to be the Tin Man!
All I could think was,
"How can I make the Tin Man cute?"
Roman is at that wonderful but short age that
he doesn't have an opinion so I decided he would be the Lion.
Nixon made a beautiful Dorothy!
She was most
excited about carrying
Isla was the cutest little
Tin Man I have ever seen!
(This is backed up by every
person we saw at both Fall
Festivals we attended)
I was planning to spray paint one of those things you use
to put oil in your car silver for her head but I lucked
out when a friend of mine had the heart and hat from her son's
Halloween costume from a previous year!
I simply made a silver tutu dress for her!
Roman refused to
dress up in his Lion
costume so Jared filled
in the 1st night!
(and I thought Roman was the one with no opinion)
The girl's LOVED their costumes!
They even won a costume contest
on FB and made it on the news!
(although that is a whole other story)
