I did not make Vivi's costume. It was bought for her at a resale shop by Kendra aka The Thrift Store Diva. I believe she paid $1 for it. Vivi originally wanted to be Cinderella, but fell in love with the little pink dress, she changed her mind.
So, for those of you with scorecards, let's go down the list.
Vivi's 5 Little Monkeys Birthday Cake - Made by us.
Emerson's Rockford Peach Costume - Made by us.
Vivi's China Doll Costume - Store bought.
I'm sorry for the extra paperwork.
In other news, we received a note from Emerson's school regarding Halloween Costumes.
"At _______School we celebrate Halloween in a fun, non-violent way. Please plan your child's Halloween costume with the following in mind:
-NOT BE WORN TO SCHOOL
-BE OF A NON-VIOLENT NATURE
- Not contain any weapons (real or imitation). This includes but is not limited to swords, guns, knives, clubs, lasers, etc.
- Not contain any fake blood or other gruesome masks.
- Not represent a violent character such as Freddie Krueger, "Jason", an axe-murderer, terrorist, etc.
And my very favorite.
-Cover the child appropriately, that is: no exposed torso, chest area, buttocks, etc.
Man, now I have to put away Emerson's pair of assless chaps until Thanksgiving! That school takes the piss out of everything!!
