Happy Halloween! This year Cricket wanted to be Ladybug Girl from her favorite book series, and I decided to transform Nora into a little peacock.
Cricket's costume is compiled of: ladybug rain boots, old black jeggings from Target, a discounted tutu and wings from Zulily and a consignment sale shirt.
Nora's costume includes: a ruffled onesie from Zulily, sparkly leggings from Target, Saucony shoes and peacock feathers and ribbon from Michael's.
To make Nora's tail, I cut the feathers to different lengths to create a fan shape, then used a hot glue gun to adhere them to the ribbon. I glued an additional piece of ribbon over the feathers, so they wouldn't poke her in the back. Amazingly, she agreed to wear the tail!
