the clown and tinkerbell

Tomorrow is the big day. The costumes are ready and I made some pictures.
Helen is a clown. I took a red shirt from the 2nd hand and  added some self made buttons. The tulle skirt is very simple- just some tulle knotted to an elastic band (should have ordered a bit more tulle though).
Helen helped to make the paper hat- if you need an instruction you can find one here.

Neomi wanted to be Tinkerbell. I made the skirt from an old tunic from the 2nd hand and added some green tulle below (bit hard to see on the pictures). From an old shirt I made a cape. The wings we had at home. The hat Neomi sew herself- it is very simple to make- an instruction to something quite similar you can find here.
We added some feathers and some glitter. I love her costume and she thinks she will be "the most beautiful girl" tomorrow... well, I hope she will still feel the same tomorrow.
Last year we made pirate costumes and she really loved it until she met all the princesses, queens and brides in kindergarten...

Lovely costumes! I like your idea of using second-hand clothes. The weather looks nice and fresh out there-- much nicer than our piles and piles of snow.
