I looked for costume to purchase and I wasn't comfortable with the prices since she'll only wear it once!
I admit the middle one isn't that bad. I just need to tweak it a bit. I went to Michael's and bought lots of felt sheets in different colors.
This morning, I went to work. I found a white t-shirt, and cut felt into shapes of cupcakes, candy, ice cream, etc. Added embellishments and bows. Added glitter glue.
Ordered a rainbow tulle skirt off ebay, and it came few days ago. She already have a bright pink wig from few years ago, when she was one of the Monster High characters.
Here's a sneak preview. My daughter will model her costume once the appliques are dry and glued on to her shirt. I did have fun doing this, it felt like doing scrap booking, you know, arranging, and rearranging to make it look good. Tweaking here and there... (please ignore the wrinkles in the shirt! I will iron it soon!)
