Halloween 2009

After dealing with the H1N1 for the past three weeks, I did manage to make a peacock costume for my daughter. She has wanted to be a peacock for about 6 months, there was no talking her out of it. Excuse the poor pictures, kids and pictures on Halloween don't mix.

In process

So as a crafty Mom I broke out my hot glue gun and started to glue feathers to a cheap pair of fairy wings that I covered with black felt. Of course I glued my poor fingers a few times, man that hurts. I made a easy tutu for the skirt. And she was a happy peacock. My kids told me that is was the best Halloween ever a few times as we were trick or treating. That made gluing my fingers worth it.

This was after trick or treating, so we are a little disheveled .

And I can't leave out my little champ.

What a great idea! I love it, I'll have to stash it away in my brain for my daughter in a couple of years :)
