Halloween Costume Contest 2012

Purple Halloween Fairy + Mini-me

Nov 03, 2012

Maggie (8) came up with this concept in the fabric store after falling in love with the purple wings.  I enjoyed many hours putting this together along with the matching mini costume for her doll, Chloe.  All of her friends were pop star divas, so I think this may have been my last chance to go wild with the little girl fairy princess thing 🙂

The dresses are costume satin with black and purple cobweb netting overlaid on the sides and backs.  The sequin trim was hand sewn.

The headdresses were made from a cut up craft store wreath, hand sewn felt flowers and plastic jewels.

Chloe’s wings are made from heavy glitter card stock backed with adhesive felt.

Thanks for looking!
