Happy Halloween!

A couple of months ago I decided that Kylie would be Elmo for Halloween. I then started searching for the perfect costume and just couldn't find anything that I liked the looks of and the ones I did like, there was no way I was spending that amount of money.

 I then thought about making something myself. Thanks to the internet, I found out how to make a tutu using elastic headbands and lots and lots and lots and lots of tulle! Originally I was going to attach Elmo's face to the tutu, but then decided to have it on the shirt instead. I looked and looked, but couldn't find a red shirt with just Elmo's face in a size that would fit her. I decided to buy some felt and make his face myself, but then I thought that was harder than it sounded to freehand Elmo's face. I finally traced a face off of one of her shirts and then used that pattern to make his face and glued it onto a red t-shirt. I think it all turned out pretty cute!!!

 Most importantly she loves dressing up as Elmo! Enjoy some pictures of her posing in her costume
