Bunny is going to be Princess Mononoke for Halloween, and I, her mother, have made her a costume that, quite frankly, rules.
To see Bunny completely transformed you have to wait until Halloween, but for now, you can view the most essential elements.
And here are the costume components that I crafted on Saturday afternoon. The whole project took just under two hours and cost just under $20.:
the "piece of resistance," the wolf tooth necklace thingy: white Fimo modeled into wolf teeth, holes poked through with a chopstick, baked, then strung on a black ribbon. (Thanks for the tips, readers!)
The black ribbon will also serve as her head and arm bands.
Bunny was at a birthday party while I was making her costume and when she came home she squealed with glee and declared me "the best mamma in the whole world!"
And for the record, Wallie is still going to be an elephant though she refuses to wear the grey sweatpants and shirt that make up her "costume." I'm hoping she changes her mind once she sees her tail (not finished with that yet.)
