(costume details: wig, pinafore, and bags made by me, green t-shirt thrifted, skeleton costume,pippi's socks and boots- Target)
i love making costumes for these guys, but his year julian broke my heart and really wanted this store bought costume. ugh!! i had to ask myself if this is really about me or them?... julian got a store bought one, but it was super painful for me to buy it. i still have hopes for next year and the years to come.
ella is the one with big plans and her confidence in me and what i can make is just a little too much. her first choice for a costume this year was an ostrich....what?!! right? i love her creativity, but WHAT? she is just way too funny and quirky...hey that sounds just like a little girl named pippi.
i was finally able to drop enough hints and get her convinced that she really would make a great pippi.
she is just like pippi in so many ways.
if you haven't seen any pippi movies in a while, do it...she is pretty entertaining!
i better start planning now!
