The costume party

I'm here again! It's incredible how quickly the days pass and suddenly I realize that I haven't posted a thing in a week!

But here I am... and I have pics. I was dying to go as the Red Queen or as a Frida... but my daughter won and I ended up being the White Rabbit. She wanted me to scream "I'm late, I'm late!" all over the place while she followed me everywhere... we even made a hole out of black felt to fall into....

Even Buzz, my daughter's loved plush dog got a costume, he was the Butterfly that the caterpillar turns into.


Here's another pic of me with my cousin (who organized the party and was dressed up as Cinderella). My costume was pretty simple but got a lot of nice comments :) I already had the ears and the bunny tail from a past Halloween, the vest is made of felt with a detachable clock that was made of felt too, the scarf is a piece of lace and my pants are actually my PJ's tucked inside my socks ;)

I Spent most of the time there making cupcakes and helping with the preparations of the party. Everybody had a great time, specially little Alice who spent the whole afternoon playing and jumping and eating frosting.

What do you think? I think we look very cute! Specially considering the low budget and the short time ;)

Your family looks so cute in those costumes! It makes me want to do one too! But I don't have a little girl to play Alice. Maybe I could dress up my black lab. Love the picture on top of the cupcakes! You should do ones for Halloween and put them in your shop. I love Halloween cupcake toppers!
