This past weekend, I managed to finish up Vivi's costume, which is really kind of a feat because my typical behavior is to finish something like this up the day before. However, I am excited about a few Christmas projects coming up, so I was eager to get this one done. It really ended up being much easier than I expected, too! I'd been planning on this costume for awhile now; it really suits Vivi's personality so perfectly! She has one of my old Rainbow Brite books that she likes to read, so she does know who Rainbow Brite is, and she had a blast playing the role. We went to a local farm Saturday night for a hayride, bonfire, and general outdoor fun. She loved pressing the little star button on her belt and yelling "Starlite!!" I had grand plans of making Brigette a sprite costume, but this was about all I could handle getting together. I saw on Kristin's instagram that she bought a costume for her daughter that was an apron (ingenious!), so I made Vivi's dress apron-style, and it was super easy to put together. It's made from felt (bonus points for no hemming needed!) with a tulle skirt for extra flare, and leggings and a thermal tee are underneath for warmth. Hope everyone has fun costum-ing it up this week! What are your plans?
P.S. Be sure to check out my friend Lesley's beautiful kitchen she posted last week!! It's gorgeous!
