Princess Sophia Costume & DIY Princess Purse

So previously I shared 2 posts about Kiggster's Halloween outfits. The DIY Ladybug costume when she was one and the DIY Bat Wings that she wore for one of the Halloween parties.  Kiggster's final Halloween costume that year, per her request, was to be Princess Sophia from the Disney Junior show Sophia The First.  I know it is quite a bit after Halloween but I figured it's still a nice dress up costume for anytime of the year!  I had someone make the dress, but I made her a princess treat bag and also a super nice amulet just like the one that Princess Sophia owned.  Well, as you will see in the pictures, she is not wearing an amulet because a couple days before Halloween, she wears the necklace out and loses it!  I am so sad, I had spent some time on it and she looked so cute with it on too but I never even got a picture of her with it!  But on a positive note, the Princess Treat Bag (tutorial at the bottom of post) turned out pretty well and Kiggster really liked it!  Wasn't she the … [Read more...]

Cute DIY Bat Costume

So I shared about the costumes I had for Kiggster the last 2 years in my previous post.  We went to a Halloween party this past Friday and put her in one of her 2 costumes.  This year, she requested to be Princess Sophia and then not long after that, she requested to be a bat.  Since we were going to be attending a few Halloween events, I decided it was ok to have 2 costumes for her! First one she wore was... The Bat!  She was so excited when I first made her the wings.  I had found some nice velvet material at my mom's house and used a tutorial I found on Pinterest for DIY Bat Wings.  I think it turned out pretty nicely, despite my lack of reading and following directions!  I would have preferred them longer but I was still really happy with it and there seems to be no complaints from Kiggster! Oh and we love getting our faces painted too!  Why yes, that's a halloween bat and a "princess face" painted on her! Hope you all have a great time this Thursday! Happy Halloween!!! … [Read more...]

2013 Halloween Costume Contest

*Scroll below to see details about the Halloween Costume Contest* I wasn't always into Halloween and dressing up but ever since I've had Kiggster, it's made me motivated to become more creative with costumes and even dress up a little myself.  Her first year we dressed her up as a ladybug and I made her whole costume from the wings, tutu, and the trick-or-treat bag. Then her second year, we did 2 outfits because I couldn't resist.  I have to admit, I got both outfits on the cheap and didn't make them myself but she looked darn cute!  She was a cute witch by day and a blooming flower by night.  I did coordinate all our "costumes" for the flower costume.  I was the bug, Kiggster was the flower, and Honey was the gardener...hence the water bucket! This year, Kiggster has asked to be Princess Sophia and a bat!  I have got my hands full putting those 2 costumes together.  I will post an update once they are completed and she has modeled them both!  So with that, I'm happy to … [Read more...]
