I have always had the pleasure of making my daughter's Halloween costumes, but had to give it up when she was in high school - she's 23 now, so it's been years since my services were needed  Sad .  (I have three sons, but their costumes have never been much fun for me!)  Finally, my 6 month old granddaughter was in need of a costume this year  Grin  I tease that I'm going to make her a fairy EVERY year, so this year I started with a Ladybug Fairy.

All the instructions were readily available online for the wings (I watched the Threadbanger video posted on Craftster one day).  Hint - after looking all over town for red tights to use, I finally found them at the costume store - but smart people probably already know that!  I used black sparkly felt for the dots.  Had to create the whole headband with wire and felt since I couldn't find one for her size head ... worked out better when I had to put the antennae on anyway.  Of course, the skirt is tulle, with more internet instructions ... super easy!  And I had to throw in the wand because what fairy doesn't have a wand?!  Although ... she wasn't allowed to play with it since everything currently ends up in her mouth  Cheesy .  All thrown together in a weekend, with a black onesie bought online ...

Here are some elements of the costume ...

And here's Eden in full fairy mode ...

And just 'cuz I think she's so cute, here's another ...  Wink

Can't wait 'til next year ... I'm thinking of all kinds of wonderful fairy possibilities -  Grin

Got this piece of shrinky dink ... had it for 25 years now.  It's moved to five states and one European country ... and I just know, someday ... SOMEDAY ... I WILL use it!

This is too darling.

So what type of fairy will she be this year?
