I still need to get some white sparkly make-up for Emma and horns and make-up for Andrew (If he will let me put make-up on him this year) but otherwise we are set. I am glad to have the costumes figured out.
Maggie and I were talking about costumes and she told me that she had bought Olivia a gypsy costume. A day or two later I put on a necklace that is brass with a lot of circles that dangle off of it. It makes a lot of noise and reminds me of a gypsy. I thought, hey I could do that rather inexpensively. So I went online and found my inspiration. It will be a dross between these two costumes.
I asked Maggie if she minded me taking her idea. She looked at me like I was crazy and said she didn't mind at all. I was so relieved.
I am using a peasant shirt I already have (I can't do an off the shoulder thing at Andrew's school), a long skirt I've had for years, jewelry I already have and boots I already have. Last Friday I went and bought some fabric that I will tie around my waist. I am set. It will be nice to not have a wig or giant headpiece this year. Also my make-up with be pretty normal. It will be heavy but I shouldn't have to use any of the nasty, sticky Halloween make-up.
I'm so excited that I even digi-scrapped a page from last years pictures. I used and altered a 2 Many Photos template from Janet Phillips and the kit is Bewitching by Kristin Cronin-Barrow.
