It's Halloween costume time and I am just about finished with my girls' costumes. I had them try them on yesterday for a test run to see how they fit and what other adjustments I may need to make. Boy am I lucky I have girls ~ I would be so lost if I had to make a ninja or power ranger costume!
Before I get started with the details I want to give a quick shout out to Kandis of Wish Photography, she is an amazing photographer who has quickly become an inspiration for me when photographing my girls. I recently purchased photoshop elements after seeing her beautiful work as well as some of her photoshop actions. I used many of her actions to edit the photos I took of my girls below.
Here is a shot of both of them, here Lauren is putting a spell on her little sister!
For both dresses I purchased the Sweet Little Princess dress pattern from Katydids on ETSY, I used the base pattern for both dresses, adding embellishments and belts to both. Here is a picture of the pattern I purchased ~ which I highly reccommend, it was very easy to work with especially for me who has had no formal sewing lessons. Each dress took me about 3 hours to complete each dress, both girls are wearing the same size as they are 2 1/2 and 4 years old and they fit great with room to grow.
Both my girls are wearing wings that I purchased from OnGossamerWings, Angelia was wonderful to work with and created custom wings for both my girls.
As for the details here is Lauren's costume
So what I still need to do for her costume is I promised to add crystals in all the circles on the ribbon so each circle will have a color of the rainbow. I also need to figure out what to use for shoes, the pink ones aren't quite right so I might get her silver or black shoes and made shoe clips to match the headpiece I am mading with peacock feathers and rhinestones.
Now for Riley's!
