My oldest decided to be a peacock and originally wanted to have me buy her one through that catalog that arrives at the beginning of September. I think you probably know the one I am talking about. With a little persuasion, I was able to talk her into letting me make her costume.
I made the tail out of tulle and sewed on the ores by hand. We were able to find her dress at a thrift store. It was a tiny bit big, but no big deal. I also made her a fascinator to represent the peacock's corona. I had never made one of these before and will definitely have to find a reason to make another.
As for my middle daughter, she decided to be a can-can dancer. I had almost everything to make her costume and just had to pick up some tulle, elastic, and a feather. I also found out that my Great-grandma was a can-can dancer in Lithuania and lived to 104. You learn something new every day!

Then there is my son. He is so into Thomas the Train at the moment, so his costume is a no-brainer. My Husband did the bulk of his costume, and the girls and I did some finishing work to it. Although not in the picture, it does have some wheels on it now.
Have a Happy & Safe Halloween!
