So these were the ideas I had, that I wanted to be this year:
Cinderella, in her work clothes. My daughter is being Cinderella, in the ball gown - which I already made. But I just couldn't convince my husband to be Prince Charming or the Fairy Godmother. Boo hoo.
Then I thought Rosie the Riveter! That would be awesome! I would teach myself to make a whole fitted coverall suit. What a great experience that would be. Then, I saw how much this costume had been over done lately. Maybe I'll still do it, in a few years.
I have always wanted to be Mary Poppins, in white. ALWAYS! This character has always been an inspiration to me. Though she may not be a real woman, I think more women should have her ideas, values, and morals. I sat n this idea for awhile. I had too many counts against me for doing this costume. It would definitely be too expensive to make and another I couldn't convince the hubby. I wasn't about to make my costume and his and M.E.'s. Aint nobody got time for that! But this is also one I still plan on dong in the future.
So I finally know what I am going to be, and my husband has agreed to pair with me. I am not making our costumes, realized is less expensive to just get the odds and ends that we need, since the majority of it we already have. It will be a surprise, and a little envelope push - but I'm sure we wont be the only people out there in these costumes, but ours will be the most creative.
Do you have your costume picked out already? Are you making it or buying it?
