Halloween Cast


Paul made the bow over her shoulder and the quiver as well. It's a cardboard tube container which he cut down and wrapped in brown paper. Dani and Therese gathered the sticks and Dani hot-glued the feathers onto the ends. Paul stuck some wadded paper in with the "arrows" so they wouldn't fall out. The White Witch
The Cat in the HatSpidey

Puppy DogI got the hat off Ebay - the shirt and pants at Goodwill - we got white exfoliating gloves at the Dollar Tree, along with the red bow. She used [half] a pair of stockings for the tail. Oh, and she had "A" under her hat which she printed onto card stock and stuck it in her hair-bun.
She really looked terrific!
Peter was purchased at Target. We got the arm protectors and the helmet at the Dollar Tree and the sword we had from Medieval Times.

Sophia saw this dress/costume at Target, and after seeing the "Peter" costume, instantly thought of the White Witch. Her sceptor/wand is a curtain rod, Her crown was put together by Dollar Tree items. I bought 2 boxes of plastic icicle ornaments and a snow foam wreath. $3.00, a little hot glue, and voila, ice crown!For her hair, I braided lots of little braids and added 5-6 shimmery white pipe cleaners. I did it early in the morning - she played outside during the day and it looked messy by the time she was ready to dress up - so it looked fantastic by that time! I was surprised it worked as well as it did. Not bad... Narnia cast:[Cinderella is a neighbor ;)]

You are incredibly creative and thrifty, Shelly! I was so lazy this year--being eight months pregnant, not creative, and not thrifty--that little John didn't get to dress up because I knew he wouldn't know any better!
