31 for 21: #31 Halloween

I know this sounds a little silly, but this year Elise grew up in a surprising way...

She changed her mind about what she wanted to be for Halloween.

Before, she didn't really care.  But this year, she chose what she wanted to be for Halloween according to one of her favorite movies.  She decided that she simply HAD to be Shrek the Ogre.  Of course, that he is not super popular right now which made finding a costume a little tricky...AND as she does not have typical physical proportions, finding one that fits is exceedingly tricky.  So, I did what any mama would do.  I made one happen.  I put together a reasonably similar outfit and crocheted a hat.

This turned out super, and as you can see by her proud modeling, she was very pleased.

Until she saw me put together her little sister's very girly costume of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland.

At this point, she decided that she needed to be more girly.

After a lot of deliberation, she decided that the perfect mesh was to be Fiona, Shrek's lovely Ogre Princess wife.  And so, 2 nights before, I put together a reasonable facsimilie of warrior Fiona from Shrek Forever After.  And I sewed a yarn wig on the ogre hat.

And she was thrilled.  And the best part?  She got some new ugg-like boots out of the deal!!  Which she will be wearing tomorrow to school.  She is stoked!!

And an added funny part?  Her little Twinkie, Charlotte, decided that she simply had to be a baby ogre.  So she signed on to be Shrek and Fiona's baby girl, Felicia.  So my little Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-Dee went as a theme...which was ADORABLE!!!  I loved it!!!
