This Halloween had some pretty un-fantastic weather, BUT....I couldn't complain because we are safely nestled here on the west coast, and my mind is on those who weathered Hurricane Sandy this week. A lot of rain here.....really isn't anything compared to that, so I set my thoughts on enjoying our Hallween evening no matter what.
Funny story....LAST year my Sugar Bear wanted to be a butterfly, but noooooooooooooooooooooo.....I mentioned the possibility of being Rapunzel from the movie Tangeled, and BLAM.....I had two months of crazy planning and sewing to do. I don't regret it one bit......but I wasn't ready to be THAT committed this Halloween, so I was more than thrilled when Sugar mentioned being a Butterfly again. Whew......
She even requested that we keep it simple. So we totally did, and she loved her costume just the same.
I purchased the wings. We loved that they weren't the stiff....hanging off your back sort of wings. She didn't want to be bumping into everyone all the time. I did embellish them a bit with some gems and sequins. So pretty.
I made her antennae with wire and beads. We both thought it was really pretty and cute.
She was happy with how quick and easy it was to put on her costume. :)
Trick or Treating was great. She flew all around, and enjoyed her butterfly freedom.
