I've actually lost count of how many times I've decided what Georgia will be for Halloween. Yup, this year I'm deciding. I'm sure it will be the last time I have that privilege.
Initially I was trying to make a fish costume but I quickly realized that it would end up costing me a fortune for supplies. One day I found myself going into a retail store where I broke down and bought a costume. Not at all what I wanted to do but at $12 I felt okay buying it as a back up. You know, just in case my diy brain failed me.
Shortly after I decided on another look. She'd be a clown. After all, I was a clown for my first Halloween. Tradition, right? That night I made a tutu in the most primary of colours. (Which by the way is something I swore I would never do. I am not a fan of these freaking tutus but I definitely don't want to make clown pants.)
Then, of course, the next day I found an Elmo costume at a bag sale. When we got home I let her try it on and I've never seen her more in love with herself. She kept petting her head saying "sooooft".
How about a hybrid with a side of rain boots? Friends, this isn't what happens when a toddler dresses herself. This is what happens when I dress a toddler. Sorry kid.*
