I tried to get some good shots of Elliot in costume, but it was all silliness, which I suppose can be expected of a 5 year old. He is going as a Bandito this year, and because his class is learning all about zero (and he has a mild obsession with Zero the Hero who visits his classroom), we decided to call him Zero rather than Zorro. You can see a zero on his cummerbund as well as the fabric lining his cape (Michael Miller's Clown Donuts is the print). I used a remnant of black ultrasuede for Elliot's eye mask and sash, and it worked so beautifully. It's really fun to work with. I briefly considered Bedazzling his sash, but decided to use metallic puff paint instead which worked great, and was super fast.Ponyo costume. I'll try and post photos of hers later, but right now she is napping and a tiny bit under the weather.
Hope all of you who celebrate Halloween have a fun, safe & dry holiday!
