I am finally posting the vampiress Halloween costume that I made for my ten-year-old daughter. The one that took about 16 yards of fabric to make and probably weighs 10 pounds. Poor girl had to play her violin wearing the thing for the Halloween recital (and might I add that she played splendidly?). I will say that this costume has already been worn enough to make it very worth the time and effort: Violin recital, school parade, Trick or Treating downtown, her Halloween-themed Birthday Party today, and Trick or Treating at the university dorms. And it isn’t even Halloween yet!!!
Just don’t pay too much attention to the fact that it doesn’t fit her incredibly well. I just didn’t have the time to make it work just right. And there’s that perfection problem I’ve been working on and all. But, still, we love it—imperfections and all.
Oh, and the costume, too. I love that the most.
