it takes a village ...

and a 'dial a friend' 
to make a costume for your child to go to cosplay. 


Hat - courtesy of moi (design suggestion by daughter) 
Dress - courtesy of Aunt Kim (with minor alterations by Grandma and cousin's fiancée, Kelly
Gloves - me 
Book - Mother and Daughter 
Boots - Grandmother, Cousin's fiancée, me

 each and everything on this outfit took 2-3-4 times longer than expected. 
Time given by said child - 3 days (little longer on dress).

 My fingers are numb. 
 My brain molecules diminished. 
My use of spicy vocabulary - perfected. 
In so far as I dropped off the final details of this get-up at 11 something last night, I was not able to get a picture of her in her costume - but since I am going to make her wear it at least once a week, every week, for every month until she goes back to college - I'll get my pictures. 


  1. Cool costume! Can't wait to see the real thing.

  2. Looking forward to those photos!

  3. You have been busy. I want to see her in it, how very cool.

  4. Wow - amazing costume - can't wait to see your daughter in it!

  5. Amazing costume.... that is so cool!!
