It's safe to say that making Lorelai's Halloween costume has become a tradition for me. I will confess that for her 1st year, my mom made the costume...but since she was only 4 months old at the time, I don't really feel guilty about that!
Last year I transformed her into a '50's girl with a poodle skirt, and this year, my mom came up with the idea of an autum fairy.
Well, we all know that for about $20 you can turn yourself into anything with supplies from JoAnn's...so here is what I came up with:
The tutus before i trimmed them up...one for L and one for her beloved monkey. I just chose 4 different colors of tulle and knotted them on an elastic band.
Cheap fary wings from JoAnn's.
The wings after a heavy dose of fake foliage, glitter, and glue.
For the hair bow, I made a small rosette out of leftover tulle and surrounded it with three pieces of ribbon...and the ribbon? It was the complementarty ribbon that Aerie ties on your bag...see? Free can be beautiful!
