Storybook Costume Parade 2019
This year’s Storybook Costume Parade was a huge success!! It seems to be growing in the community too, because we had more parents than ever in attendance!! Our office dressed up as 101 Dalmatians, with the best Cruella Deville ever!! Everyone had fun and the younger kids walked away with a TON of candy!!
We made our Dalmatian shirts using the cricut. Most of us made our ears by buying bunny ears and adding felt dots and a bow. Of course, we had to have a tutu, because what costume is complete with out one!! It was an easy costume to make!
Halloween is my FAVORITE time of the year!! Our friends throw an annual Halloween Party and everyone is so creative. Even the food is Halloweeny!
I love planning out cute costumes and putting them all together. This year we went as a hunter and deer along with our besties. This may have been the easiest costume ever to make!! I’m also getting a lot faster making tutus since I make them for almost every costume lately!!
For the deer, I started by buying antlers, brown leggings and a brown shirt. Let me tell you, I will probably wear these leggings all the time. I love the way they fit and feel!! I used the cricut to make a big white oval, then pressed it on the shirt. You could use felt, too, but since I have a cricut, I just used that! All of that took about 2 minutes. The tutu is just tulle and ribbon. It takes a little longer, but it completes the costume.
My husband’s outfit was even easier. I just bought a green shirt and he already had the coat, crocs and camo looking pants. But I did have to buy him a rifle. The green shirt came in a package of two, so now I can make him something else with the cricut! Overall, the costumes were a hit!
Helpful Hint #1
I swear I don’t think I can put on a shirt or dress without getting deodorant all over it. Most of the time I don’t even notice until I am already where I planned on going, but every once in a while I catch it at home. I’ve been getting a wet towel and soaking my shirt to get the deodorant out, but then I get to go out with a wet spot. I looked it up and found a really good tip that really works!!
Get deodorant on your clothes.
Get a nylon and put it on your hand.
Rub it on the deodorant and voila! Deodorant gone!!
