Around August of every year, Cali and I sit down and she picks out the costume she wants me to make for Halloween. This year? A jacked-up watermelon fairy (see above). Really, Cali? A watermelon fairy?! Not only that….I’m gonna have to make a pettiskirt. Chiffon. I hate sewing chiffon. I curse the chiffon. I’m not quite sure how I’m going to make those watermelon wings either. I’m thinking wire, pantyhose and craft paint. There’s a good chance she’s going to hit the streets looking like a hot mess on a tin plate. Stay tuned for future progress.
Here are some of the costumes she passed on…thank gawd! Don’t you wish you could dress like this every day? I do. I’d totally go to Publix dressed like a magical mermaid. The majority of these costumes are available for purchase at Chasing Fireflies.
