My daughter found She-ra on Netflix and was instantly smitten.  She wanted all the She-ra dolls (because she's five and that is the first thing that she thinks of) so I told her that she could trade in all her Barbies for She-ra dolls and she didn't miss a beat when she swore them all over.  I woke up the next morning to a bag full of Barbies and a pleading look...  so eBay to the rescue...  the kid traded in her 8 Princess Barbies for a dozen (some duplicates) 20+ year old She-ra dolls...  Anyhow, she obviously also had to be She-ra for Halloween.

I made her crown out of a sheet of glittered foam "paper"...  her spats and arm cuffs also were made of the stuff.

She lost that belt that night and I hadn't finished all her embellishments...  so I had to whip up the new one...

For the honor of Greyskull!!!

I made everything but the undershirt and tights.  My dad made her sword.

Her Sword of Protection.  lol  My dad just took up using a skill saw which turned out to be totally awesome!

There are some really spectacular costumes posted up here!  I just wanted to share my little She-ra's.  Thanks for checking it out!

I love it! I want one too. And honestly, I've been looking for a costume for awhile and I think this is the best looking handmade costume of She-Ra. Every little detail is perfect.

I love it! I gave my sweet little neighbor girl all of my old She-Ra toys on Halloween Smiley

Oh.  Em.  Gees!  So perfect!  You, and your daughter, totally rock.  I hope she got lots of props for her good taste and your hard work on Halloween!  <3

Thank you all!   Grin  She only had a few people who recognized her (a disappointing number of people couldn't remember who She-ra was...   Undecided )  but she would get ecstatic when people did recognize her.  A few asked if she was the devil.  I wanted to back hand them.  But she would just declare "No!  I am the Princess of Power!" and hold her sword in the air.  It was cute and people would look confused and give her candy. 

But thank you all again.  I'm just happy to have a chance to share it with people who can appreciate it.   Wink
