Birthday/Costume Party




My six year old Shimmy is very tall. She went to a birthday/costume party today and after going through last years and early part of this years costumes and dress-up wear, I notice that she just outgrew everything. I couldn't believe it. Of course leave it to me to wait till last minute to figure out that she needs something quick to wear.
So, we went through the whole entire house and didn't find something she liked. Of course I sell tutu's and leotards and I just didn't think she would want to be a ballerina/fairy. DUH!
Of course she did. She loves girly things. I guess I figure since she's always wearing tutus for dress up that she would not want to wear it for a party. Wrong! She loved the idea of a fairy so I gathered some wings that I had from last year, a leotard and a tutu, some very small tights (size 6 which she outgrew as well) and some face paint that I purchased at Joannes Fabrics. I picked up her hair and added a scrunchy and this is the outcome. What do you think? Not bad huh? All within 20 minutes.

  2. How pretty she is. Tall kids are difficult to dress. I have four of them!
