Her costume, that is.
Little Miss Early Bershon has decided she's had it with all the princess stuff.
She's going to be a "Butterfly Girl" this year.
Woe to the person who confuses the two on their doorstep. They might wish they'd left their lights off ...
We began this year's project by making a paper template.
Folded lots of construction paper.
And cut out dozens of paper butterflies, which she decorated with marker and sequined scales.
I took all the dried butterflies and basted them to a green pinafore dress she's almost outgrown.
And here it is: Chica Mariposa!
We are also working on hot-gluing some of these paper creatures to a headband so they will flutter around her head as she walks around the neighborhood.
We also made a ring out of ribbon and crepe.
Next it's his turn.
He wants to be (and I kid you not) a superhero skeleton man. ...
"Like when Metroman faked his own death."
