Presenting Mickey Mouse


Here’s Ms.Nanya,dressed up as Mickey Mouse 🙂

For her costume,I used –
Her black full sleeves T-shirt with a hoodie

Black tights( $4 from K-Mart)

Red shorts-I had a pair of red pants,a gift to Aadya,when she was 3.It was too small for her,so,I just put it aside for Baby#2(whenever,he/she appears!).So,I pulled those pants out of my  bag  of clothes too-good/new-to-be-thrown,and just shortened them to the desired length.

2 cotton pads for the white spots on Mickey’s shorts.You could even use white paint,but I couldn’t find my paints.

And lastly, Mickey Mouse ears($5 from the local Party shop-Let’s Celebrate Parties)

I used some facepaint to paint her nose and whiskers …Ta da..All done 😀

Presenting Batgirl

Aadi’s school had organised a Halloween-themed Disco today.And she decided to go as BatGirl .
I have decided readymade costumes are over-rated and DIY are more fun(for me).So,I went around finding the bits and pieces to make this costume.
I found the T-shirt ($16 on sale)at Target in the boys’ clothes section. It had a bonus cape with it.
Then I got a black mini skirt from Kmart($5).
She needed new tights,so got those from Kmart as well.($6)
And she wore her black sneakers,because BatGirl needs sneakers for speed.
I loved it how the whole costume came together…What do you think?
Coming up soon,Nanya’s costume…can you guess what she wants to dress up as?
