I was a Mouseketeer, hubby was Walt Disney, my littlest was Daisy Duck, and my eldest was Minnie Mouse. Each costume had something handmade!

Daisy had a crocheted hat and white tutu made by me, a purple onesie with a bow added, and white bloomers. Of course, it got cold (for Florida) and we had to cover up half of it for some of the pics. My Mouseketeer was almost completely handmade. The blouse is the bow-tie blouse from Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing with my name sewn on. The skirt is a vintage circle skirt pattern. Yes, I tried to stay vintage! The only part I didn't make myself was the hat, but I did add a big crocheted red bow to make it more fun. Hubby's Walt had the least crafted, and it was the nametag that he made himself and was so proud. He shaved just for the occasion too

My pride and joy of this theme is the Minnie Mouse dress. I drafted this pattern myself! The first time ever I did something sewn without a pattern, and I am so proud of it! I used a shirt that fit her well and traced it to make the bodice. The back has elastic to make it grow with her longer. The straps have wire in the sides to make them keep their shape well, and the ribbon for that and the ties was actually leftover from our wedding, so it's extra special. The bottom is a pink lining and pink tulle with a TON of hand sewn little felt polka dots. Those took forever! She adores it and cries when we take it off! The ears are an old headband from build-a-bear that I tore down to the ears and bow, then attached them to big hair clips, so it is really three separate pieces. This was a great idea, because my daughter hates, and I mean HATES, things in her hair or on her head. I can barely put her hair in a ponytail without her throwing a fit. But I put these in, and she pranced around like she knew how pretty she looked hehe. She shocked me by asking to wear them just yesterday.

We loved our costumes so much that we went to Disney the day after Halloween and wore them there as well!

Custom portraits, mermaid tails, crochet hats, and geeky art.
