Our baby started out with the nick-name, "green-bean" because the first sonogram looked like--
well-- a green-bean!
Then, once she arrived, our term of endearment quickly turned into, "pumpkin." There was really no question what she would be for Halloween.
The only question was how was I going to make it?
I decided the tutu would add some girly fun to our little pumpkin. And, I love the orange tulle with just a hint of sparkle in it. About every third strip of tulle is the sparkle tulle,
You would think that orange onesies would abound at Halloween. But they don't. So a plain white onesie dyed orange had to do. And some simple black fabric and wonder-under finished out the jack-o-lantern face.
The stem hair bow needs a little re-working for the big day. I'd like to move the leaves so that the clip doesn't show at all.
The best part of the whole costume-photo-shoot was playing with our little pumpkin in the leaves. She thought falling leaves were hilarious!!!! So, of course, Nana and I scooped up big hand-fulls and threw them in the air and giggled right along with her.
And, of course, because she is almost eight months old and is teething (ummm...have I mentioned that it looks like her cuspids might be coming in? Have I also mentioned that she doesn't have any other teeth? Are we going to have to change her costume to Bunicula???
Now for the fun!!!
