Tonight was our first official Halloween dress up event. I still haven't even decorated my house, but fortunately this costume has been in the works for some time. I actually made it two years ago. I volunteered to make a costume for my friend's daughter and she requested Cinderella. I bought the Disney pattern and everything. I have been waiting for Lydia to be big enough to wear it and this was the year. Having a costume finished years ago was just too easy, so I found some bargain trims on a slutty adult costume and morphed the two dresses together. Somehow, I never managed to put the dress on Lydia until this week.
I knew that when my friend's daughter wore the dress, it was so long she tripped on the hem several times. I added trims to the skirt, but didn't change the length. Luckily everything was a perfect fit, including the length.
This was our second year attending Boo at the Zoo. Pictures from last year can be found here.
