So it was my 7.5 month old daughter's VERY FIRST HALLOWEEN.  How could we NOT go handmade? This cost us less than $3 to make, and took about 3 hours.  Which was a good thing, since I was a bad last minute mommy and waited until the last possible week to start working on this.





I made the wig out of some cheap, stretchy fabric I found in the clearance section of our local craft store. The buns are just long tubes stuffed with filling I took out of an old pillow. I hand sewed the buns to the main part of the hat and voila! Instant hair for baby!

Her "gown" was made from an old shower curtain. It was barely used (the top plastic backing for the shower rings had fallen off) and it had a slight sheen which made it perfect for the gown.  I took a shortcut and instead of hemming the sleeves and skirt, I cut the pieces I needed out along the bottom of the shower curtain hem. It saved a lot of sewing time!

My husband made the belt.  He works at a sign shop so he used some scrap banner material left over and the silver accents are just silver vinyl.

She had a little stuffed gun too! But I didn't get a good shot of it. Also, we just put a white terry sleeper that we happened to have under her gown since we didn't have white boots for her.

Here's one more picture of her standing:

Possibly the best baby costume ever. Could only be made better if you all went out as characters from the movie. Did you? Say yes, I wanna see!

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

Aw thank you! Alas, no, we didn't all dress up.  Would've been cute if my husband managed to be Darth Vader.  Bad planning on our part, just not enough time.  I also thought it would've been even cooler if husband and I dressed up as Storm Troopers, since we had to carry baby around.

Adorable and so very clever.  Even more so considering it took so little time and money.
