Claire's Costume - Halloween 2012
It looks like we made it another year without a princess costume! This year Claire is dressing up as a Flower Fairy. We knew she would be a princess or fairy of some sort - it just depended on what we could find.
- since Josh didn't want her to be that it was fine with me)
As luck would have it I found this costume at Savers for $6.99.
It didn't come with wings or the other accesories so I made those out of some fabric I bought at Joann that matched perfectly.
The dress is a Disney costume and it had a ridiculous, plastic cameo in the center of the flower on the front of the dress. I looked it up online and it was Rossetta's face. I took it off and sewed a pearl/gold button in it's place. Instantly classier.
The wings were a small trial.
Which did not look good at all.
Then out of desperation, I took a different pair of strange shaped wings that were too bright of a pink and soaked them in bleach water to try to lighten the color but the bleach didn't effect the color at all.
We found the last pair of wings and I decided to try to dye them with rit dye to get them the right color.
It worked beautifully!
I made a flower and sewed it on in the center along with a pearl button to match the front of the dress,
I love that this costume was so easy and looks great! We have one happy Flower Fairy over here.
