I wish I was all done with my costumes so that you could see but the flower girls wore me out.
This is what we are being.
We usually know a year in advance what everyone is going to be. They get very excited and talk about it all year. This year Baubey changed her mind a lot. First she wanted to be Victoria from Twilight. I told that no one would know who she was because really how would you know without buying the freaky contacts. This is the list of her other options, Zombie, Prom Zombie, eighties girl (who knew that what I wore when I was her age would be a costume now) rock star princess, Mulan, Jessie and the winner was a gangster or should I say a gangsta. I am buying the fabric today. Wish me luck.
Gowyn has a long and undying love of Cinderella. She has been every version you could imagine. Cinderella, Pumpkin fairy, Fairy Godmother, Cinderella the maid, Cinderella the pink dress that he mice make. This year she is being Cinderella the bride. I have told her that we have worked our way though the entire movie so now we are done. She still has hopes of being both the step sisters. I am just not in the mood for that one. Her very best friend is a boy and has agreed to be Prince charming. This is all very appropriate, it is Cinderella and Prince charming's 60th wedding anniversary this year.
Lala is being a musketeer she has had her heart on it since last year. She really likes the idea of the hat, and the sword, the two trickiest things. One can find many piarte swords but not fencing swords. Since her favorite color is pink, it is pink, on pink, on pink.
For fun a little pointless background four of my siblings including me all had babies with in one year, I know we were busy. So this year the three year olds are all being characters from The Wizard of Oz. Baby sister is being the Wicked Witch of the East. Niece 1 is going to be Glinda. My sister in law has always loved the movie and since Lala was Glinda when she was three, I have promised it to her. Niece 2 is going to be one of the ballerina munchkins, she didn't want to be black and have a green face, for some reason no three year old girl does. Niece 3 is going to be Dorothy she has long dark hair and will be perfect. I still haven't forgiven my brother for moving across the planet, because he did will not have a lion,scarecrow, or Tin Man, I am positive my nephew would have been the cutest one ever. The Wicked Witch of the East was the one that the house landed on, all you ever see is her legs so this leaves quite alot up to the imagination. I have decided on a tierd skirt, corset, peasant blouse, and of course black and white striped legs and ruby red shoes. So far it is looking pretty cute.
My husband and I never dress up. I know we are very boring. My girls always want him to dress up but he is not having it. We were watching Glee once and he said that I could make him a Kiss costume I think going from never dressing up, to going as Gene Simmons might be too much of a leap. I did buy a musketeer hat the turned out to really be a Zorro hat. It was to big for Lala so he is going to wear it while he drives the girls around on our scooter he thinks it will be cool to have the cape fly up in the back. Goofy man.
I'm sorry I don't have any photos I keep forgetting to take them as I go. I will be taking a bunch the day of promise. Until then pray that the sewing gods will be with me the next two days. Trust me I am going to need it.
