As mentioned before Peter Pan is the obsession at our house right now. So when asked what they’d like to be for Halloween, W replied “Paptain Hook”, and K of course said Tinker Bell. I lucked out and found a pirate costume at Costco but it needed a little more work to be seen as a Hook costume. I decided the kids might need jackets this year so headed out to the Fabricland sale and picked up fleece. I made a Hook jacket by simply taking my daughter’s dress coat and fashioning a pattern around it. I then added lace and buttons and some gold ribbon to make it a little more pirate-like.
For Tink I got her a cute yellow fairy dress from Sunflower Boutique and then bought some lime green fleece. I made up some leggings and fashioned a jacket with leaves on it. I added a few sequins to jazz it up and am thinking of little LED lights since Tink “lights up”.
What do you think? Overkill?
Now I just need to think up some shoes.
