A Rainbow Fairy

I know it's a little late to post Halloween costumes, but what little girl really needs an excuse to dress up any day of the year, right?

So, even though I'm a slacker, I present The Rainbow Fairy!
This kid has had it in her head for a very long time that she was going to be a rainbow fairy for Halloween this year.
How could I say no to this sweet little girl?
So I bought 16 yards of tulle and got to sewing...
and sewing...
And sewing.
Whew!  8 layers later, we had a beautiful tutu that won't tangle like the tie tutus!
I was so mad last year that I kept having to comb out Kota's & Chey's tutus!
Am I the only one that has this problem?
Anyway, the tutu took me a while, but I love how it turned out!
And I still have about a half a yard of each color left in case I get around to making a skirt for a certain doll Santa MAY be bringing for this little girl for Christmas.
For the shirt, I wanted something that she could wear to school with jeans or wear with the tutu after Halloween, so we went with a simple glittery rainbow.
I bought the wings at Dollar Tree and added rainbow colored glitter to tie it in with the rest of the outfit.
I think Charly's favorite part was the hair pretty.  It kind of looks like a clown, but I love it, too!
It adds a certain amount of whimsy to the costume, don't you think?
Add a little glitter rainbow to her cheek
And rainbow finger nails
And this little fairy was ready to fly off on an adventure
I love it when my kids start a sentence with "Pretend..."  I love watching their little imaginations at work!
This was the most excited she has ever been for one of Mommy's photo shoots.
She kept saying, "Mommy, get a picture of me doing this..."
So what were your kids for Halloween?
Will their costumes be going in the dress up box?
