Watch for falling houses

When Lala was Glynda for Halloween I told my sister in law that her daughter could be her for Halloween when she was three. You see five of us (sisters and sister in laws) got pregnant with in a year, so we have five three year olds in the family. So this past Halloween each of our kids were a character for the Wizard of Oz. Baby sister was the Wicked Witch of the East. Since this is all you ever see, the imagination was the limit. 

We started with the hat, Baby sister's favorite color is orange, and she wouldn't leave the store without it.

I next made the skirt, with just the tulle skirts, no lining, the orange, purple and green layered on top of each other looked like a bruise.

I added the white to separate the colors, then with the over skirt it brought the total of skirts to fourteen that is not a typo there are fourteen different skirts on that one little size three skirt.

I then made the peasant blouse and corset. I had to put Velcro under the arms to hold it in place. Satin on satin doesn't stay in place on it's own. Go figure.

 You can tell the difference in this photo.

 It was so fun to have all the three year olds running down the street in their Oz finest. In fact it was so much fun that we didn't get a picture of it. There is not one picture of all the girls dressed up. We had Glynda,The Wicked Witch of the East, Dorothy, and a ballerina munchkin. For some reason not one three year old girl wanted to be a spooky witch with a green face. Our number five was across the ocean but if he had been here he would have made the cutest tin man or scarecrow.

Sorry this one is staying in the closet too. My sister had twins so we are going to have to wait until they have had a turn at being the witches of OZ.

Thanks again for coming to play with me. I hope to do it again next year. I will announce the winner of the Wicked Witch of the West on Friday. You can get an additional entry for leaving a comment here
