In our home, we start talking in August about what my girls want to be for Halloween. Peanut’s answer is usually very vague and ends up being a creating of her own beautiful mind – which I love.
This year however, she was very specific and sure from the first discussion.
“I want to be Supergirl”
We discussed and even tried on a store bought costume – but this is a girl after my own heart – she wanted to create her own.
We don’t believe in “making costumes” in our home.
We are “assemblers” of costumes – sometime they require crafting skills, but they are generally a pulling together of different pieces and parts to make a unique costume.
The headband is a belt from a Superman costume – and every Supergirl needs some gold eye shadow and glitter.
She already owned the t-shirt.
The tights and skirt were found at the costume shop and the cape was $8 at Joanne fabrics.
In the past we have always made our tutus – but this one fit our needs quite perfectly – so we went for it.
The bracelet is made from gold duct tape with a hairclip pinned on it.
Ah, the boots –this is where you learn from my mistakes – that is coming tomorrow!
For now, we are jetting off for trick or treating!
Thanks for reading!
