I don't much have time for anything anymore, what with a 5 month old, grad school, contract work and personal swaps, but Halloween is a must in this house.  What's more, it's my little one's FIRST halloween. so she HAD to be well costumed Smiley We originally had a chili pepper costume made by the fabulous ptarmic wampus that we got in a swap but as my little girl is tall and lean she's both swimming in it width wise and too long to fit in it properly (don't know how that happened!) so i decided to make her costume myself. so i made her a Monarch Butterfly. And I'm the Twig She Landed On. Cheesy we debuted it at the Boo at the Zoo SF last saturday! it was a hit. also, i decided to make it to fit one of her baby carriers (a beco) and it was super comfy for her 'cause all she was wearing was a long sleeved onesie, some babylegs, and a black socks. here it is!

The full costume (i'm wearing a brown tracksuit as my twig costume):


She wore an antennae headband, crocheted by me:


Overexposed side view, but it shows the beco really well:


Another at the pumpkin patch:


We'll be wearing it tomorrow night too for her first trick or treat night! Smiley

"Stressed" is "desserts" spelled backwards.

That's fabulous!

I was going to go with my son as koala and myself as the tree for his first Purim in March, but I might just borrow your idea - it works so well with the carrier!

(And also props to you - I regularly refer to it as "crackster" now.)

Fantastic costume idea and really super that you made it to where you can still wear your little one (love to see mommas holding and wearing their babes instead of carrying them like luggage)....super super super all around!
