Every year for Halloween my daughter wants to go as Barbie... Luckily Barbie makes new movies every year and the dresses are very cute and fun to make if you can get past the shocking pink of it all. This year Barbie was a musketeer... so of course my daughter had to have to. At first it seemed like it would be an easier year, because at least I wouldn't have to make wings again. Of course it wound up being much more of an undertaking than ever before. I made the dress and cape... my husband painted a musketeer cross on the back in gold paint, but I didn't get a good shot of it. I also took the sole off an old pair of boots and built a new pair that went up to the knee in true musketeer style. I found a basic foam hat form and recovered and shaped it. My fingers are nearly burned to the bone after hours with the hot glue gun....

A very happy Trick-or-treat girl... of course she is fatally allergic to nuts, so she traded in all the candy with me for a toy of her choosing instead.



Back View

My son is just a year old... so I still have complete creative control, although I bet this is the last year. We saw the Tale of Desperaux and I knew it would be perfect for my little guy. The costume was really quick to make and comfortable for him. I attached the ears to the beanie hat I made and he wore it all night. Very surprising because he normally tears hats off.

The fake fur was so stiff the ears actually didn't need any kind of supports.

Close up!
