Cavegirls aren't dirty, unfashionable, wretches;
CAVE GIRLS can be fabulous!


Here is Sophia, our 4 year old modern cave girl, in our new line of Cave Girl Couture!



This costume is made entirely from stuff from my stash, I didn't spend one cent!  LOVE it!

Here are all the pieces:
-Faux fur fabric, made into an off the shoulder funky dress. I used wonky stitching, erratic zigzags, and pinking shears for a very organic feel.  The dress is just 2 pieces (one front and back)
-She has a lace-up (with pink leather) corset belt.
-The bone hair accessory (made from a foil base, wrapped in white paper adhered with mod podge.  I knotted the white pony tail elastic to it, and covered it with layers, so it will affix firmly in the hair.  Sophia painted it white when it dried.
-Her tiger tooth necklace is polymer clay, with 4 paints and glazes to age and distress it.  Pink leather strap.
-Faux fur cuffs (just elastic inside) and shoe covers (just pinned at the toe with one little safety pin) complete the look.
-The hair is all hers, we just didn't brush it today!
-Last, she has her trusty club, to ward off predators.  It's made from brown paper, rolled and spray adhesived together to form a solid shape. Then, I used decopage glue and recycled brown paper bags to give it texture.  Spray paint and a bit of acrylic give it an even color tone.

Back view....ALL THAT HAIR!


Close-up of Jewelry and accessories:


This costume survived: dinner out, carseats, pony rides, photos, soccer kicks, bounce houses, llama petting, cotton candy, face painting, and various candy... full set of photos is in my Flickr, should you be so inclined.  She didn't want to take it off, and wants to wear it again tomorrow!  We were the ONLY cave women at the whole event, so she was very proud to be original.

See, it even transforms into a pink kitty!


Thanks for looking. Smiley

I have to agree with LONGTIME GEEK - this costume is awesome.  And your little girl is adorable.  She looks like you as well  Grin.  Hopefully she will develop the craft bug as well.

I love it and I'm glad she did too.

Thanks guys!

I love it and I'm glad she did too.

Oh she TOTALLY got the craft bug!  EVERY day she asks, "Mom, can we paint?" or something similar.  She usually works right alongside me, whatever I am doing...drawing, painting, clay, beading, collage, ATCs, etc.  She just came into the kitchen and the FIRST thing she asked was "Mom, can I have a piece of square black paper for my crafting"...who knows what she is up to! Cheesy

Yeah, she looks tons like me, my photos from that age are pretty close!

Here's one more:


Her little brother is the whole reason we dressed as cavemen, because that's the costume that fits his personality so well! Cheesy

This morning she wanted to put it all right back on again, so she wore it all, but with an astronaut hat.  Who says cave girls can't grow up to be astronauts? Wink

Hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween.
