I’m working on the finishing touches for Penelope’s costume. It’s by far the most work I’ve put into a costume. EVER. Originally I was going to make her a dino costume, then in the middle of doing that, she decided that she had to be spiderman. OH GEEZ. I tried to convince her that Dino Squad was cooler, then I tried to convince her that there was a green spiderman, THEN Chris had a stroke of genius: the wicked witch of the west. I’m already dressing up as dorothy for a party tomorrow, I also have a lot of green, I just need to encorporate black.
It wasn’t too hard to convince her that she wanted to be an evil witch. Witches have brooms & can fly. Turns out she just wants to fly somehow for Halloween.
I dyed some white cotton stockings green & once we figured out that she’s going to go as the Wicked Witch, I needed stripes. I used Liz’s idea for painting stripes with masking tape, but I stretched the stockings over a round mailer in order to get the lines to go all the way around. They’re even enough. I’m really excited to reveal the rest of her costume! It’s going to be awesome. Or an awesome failure.
Happy Halloween Weekend!
