So I realize this is the day AFTER Halloween, but I did want to share a few details on Isla’s Halloween costume. It was a lot of fun to make, super easy and cost effective.
I was inspired by this costume which I found while scouring Pinterest.
This costume was based off this Martha Stewart pattern, so I went back to Martha’s pattern and followed it while adding my own little modifications.
I printed off the pattern at 300% to fit her petite 6 month old frame. The largest wing was still pretty large for her so I only ended up using 3 layers of wing (instead of 4). Instead of the pilot cap I made a headband using the ear pieces and added feathers to them. I was a little worried they would look like cat ears without the feathers. I also skipped the goggles. There was so way I was going to get this wiggly little lady to wear something over her eyes all night.
I spent a total of $7 on this costume, including the cost of having the pattern pieces printed at Kinko’s, and I have TONS of leftover felt for anyone else who would also like a pair of owl wings. 🙂
We spent our Halloween at our church’s Trunk or Treat event. I wanted to get a few good photos of her in her costume, but she wasn’t too excited about our backdrop. She immediately got this face…
There was something about that pumpkin.
