Eloise put her costume together about two hours before we headed out for the evening. She wanted to be a Diva Cat(which is better than a Diva Cup- trust me – don’t Google it) – which is basically a cat with attitude. I told her that she would have NO problem with the attitude part. She rolled her eyes at me. “SEE!” I said.
Then she proceeded to go in my closet to find her outfit. “Whatcha doin’?” I inquired. “Finding black stuff to be a black diva cat – and you almost only wear black – so I’m sure I’ll find something.” She replied. I told her to just stay out of my underwear drawer because I keep my unmentionables among other things in there.
She came out of my closet wearing my black leggings, my black fleece sweatshirt, my black and white striped socks, my sparkle running skirt, and my black motorcycle boots. AND THEY ALL FIT. LIKE NOT ALL THAT BIG FIT. And I was like “Whoa, since when can you wear ladies clothing and size 9 boots?”
She then grabbed some cat ears and a tail from a few Halloweens ago – drew some whiskers and a nose, applied some fake eyelashes..and BAM – Diva Cat. Complete with free attitude.
Astrid wanted to be Olaf. She’s wanted to be Olaf since the first time she saw Frozen. She’s not a princess girl – has never dressed up as a princess – doesn’t love anything to do with princesses…but SNOWMEN – she loves snowmen. She got the store-bought costume this year.
She even said “Hi, I’m Olaf and I like warm hugs” as she set off trick or treating. And sometimes would even add “WATCH OUT FOR MY BUTT!”
I love my little girl and her love of butt jokes. Maybe I’m biased, but there’s not a cuter Olaf anywhere.
Esther wanted to be Astrid. Not her sister Astrid, but Astrid from How To Train Your Dragon.
We made the whole thing – sewed the felt and leather skirt, took one of my t-shirts and made it to fit her, made the shoulder armor and the headband, and she wore my fur boot covers over her UGGs. But the biggest thing we did was make the spikes and skulls to adorn her skirt. We had fun with model magic and some paint. I think they turned out pretty good.
She loved her handmade costume. I’m saving it for Astrid to wear. The real Astrid – not the dragon trainer.
Was Halloween really two weeks ago? And I’m just now posting.
