Dd2 wants to be Maleficent this year so I'm about to load Pinterest for a horn and staff tutorial. Hopefully I can cobble a dress together from something we already have in the dressing up box with some added bits. I'm thinking of chopping up the Halloween dress she's almost outgrown maybe.
No idea yet what dd1 wants but I'm hoping she decides soon so I can diy rather than pay a fortune for something she's only likely to wear the once.
What about you lot? Are you making, buying, not bothering?
Parts of it, he wants to be a tooth fairy so I'll be making a tooth applique for a white t-shirt, a tooth wand and a tooth pouch to fill with coins. The rest - tutu, wings and leggings are coming from amazon. This is our first world book day and I'm only disappointed he didn't choose something more interesting so I could get the sewing machine out
I’m making a very simple stick man outfit for 3yr old ds. Have bought a brown long sleeved t-shirt and leggings, will draw on a wood grain pattern with sharpie, and glue on a few leaves cut out of green felt.
I am making the trousers from purple crushed velvet. Cape and mask from old black velvet dress I will never fit in again 😢. An oversized school shirt, cut off cuffs and collar and add lace trim to both and down the front of the shirt. And I bought the hat and sword. I am only a novice so winging it for the most part.
I am but I wish I didn't have to this year as I have a baby that is literally never off me and we are mid minor home renovations which have created a huge amount of mess!
DS wants to be Toby spell dragon though and I can't find anything suitable without spending a fortune. So far in 3 days I have managed to cut 2 triangles of fabric to start the tail, wish me luck or preferably send me some extra time!
My DS is only 3 and a half and wants to be Dinosaur Roar so I’ve just bought a T Rex onesie as that’s much easier than constructing a T Rex costume. Plenty about. When he’s older and if he asks for anything a bit different or obscure I’ll make it!
