A few months ago our daughter (almost 6 now) said to us out of the blue, "I Know what I want to be for Halloween! A mustache!!"  and we laughed our heads off.
 Halloween got closer and her mind did not change, so we brainstormed how she wanted it to work out. In the end we found that she wanted to be a giant brown handlebar mustache. And she wanted to be able to hang her trick-or-treat bag from one of the curls. AND SO IT WAS.  

Stuffing didn't hold the shape well enough, the curls flopped over. But at my husband's suggestion i hacked out thick pieces of foam for the curls and stuffed them with those. much better!

and it should also be noted that I am going to go to the party store very soon to pick up some adhesive mustaches, for the sole purpose of someday using this quote from rockfullofawesome: "I carry seven mustaches around in my glove compartment... just in case."

Echoing all the above about how great your daughter is......but that is a TERRIFIC mustache, too.

That mustache is a mustache that could be focussed on World Conquest and DOMINATION!

The fact that your 6+ year old daughter wanted to be a handle-bar mustache is hilarious! She seems like a very creative little girl. I guess the handle-bar is a hit for a ages!

Also, great execution on your part! Good work, it totally made me laugh.   Cheesy

Great costume! I love the handlebar mustache type. Maybe next year she should go as an "evil villian" mustache! You know, the skinny kind that gets twirled when the villian is up to no good! Cheesy

i don't even know where to begin. i mean, did you see her with the other kids? her moustache-awesomemess glowing next to perfectly-adequate-but-totally-cliche halloween costumes? i love you, i love your daughter, i love the costume. what does she want to be when she grows up? and what will next year's costume be? an eyebrow? and where does a 6yo even see a handlebar mustache to dress up as? did she consider just WEARING a mustache, or was she dead set on BEING the mustache? tell me everything! i'm freaking bookmarking this post so i can study how to be half as cool as your offspring.

wow.  i'm impressed.  i thought i was being really original when i painted on a mustache last year.  Halloween is a liminal time, it should be represented in costumes that blur the lines. 
Kudos to you, Katjia, for the most creative, original costume I've seen in a long while.  And I looooove the pic of you with all the witches and princesses, you are an inspiration.  And reading all the posts left here made my day.  Moustaches really bring out the goofy side of crafters, huh?
