The four-year-old asked me if he was “the Dark Knight.” (He doesn’t know what this means, just that his best friend says the Dark Knight is really cool.) So I told him ‘yes.’ Whatever it takes to get him to wear the costume. This is the only costume I made this year and even then I only made the tunic. And even then, I only sewed two shoulder seams and the red cross on the front. I was so pleased with the final outcome, and the child actually wore it!
The seven-year-old went as a Matador, wearing her dance recital costume, which I loved! Ever since the dance recital in June I have been promoting this as the perfect Halloween costume. Partly because it was ready to go. Partly because I wanted to get my money’s worth out of that sucker, and partly because it was so stinking cute! Not a fluffy fairy-princess costume, but she went for it.The nine-year-old was Heidi wearing a dirndl my parents bought in Austria about 20 years ago. It was also very cute and also very minimal effort. My favorite Halloween costume combination!
Okay, thanks for indulging me. Tomorrow is back to fabric, quilts, etc.
