For my niece Ksenia's first Halloween costume I was asked to sew a vampires cape. Normally first time mothers usually dress their children up in cute cuddly costumes like bears, and tigers, and frogs, but not my sister, she's down with the jazz of Halloween! She was meant to be a vampire for Halloween too; she has 2 top teeth and 2 bottom teeth, her hair makes this cute curl Right in the centre of her forehead, and when shes playing or wants something she makes this really Erie zombie "roar" where she sucks air into the back of her throat, it actually sounds like shes choking. The first time she did that to me I was actually a little afraid... lol
The costume is made of black and red silks back to back, with a cardboard stuffed collar so it pops up around her neck. I've also made here a little bat with button eyes, which hangs from a satin string, and silk wrist cuff with Velcro fasteners. Shes already gotten a hold of the bat a few times and loves to play with it!
I am trying to convince my breast feeding sister to wear a white shirt ripped and covered in blood in all the 'right places' *wink wink*, so it looks like while feeding, the baby has attacked her! I don't think she will do it tho, not all of our family and friends have a sick sense of humour like me! lol
I can't wait to see it on her!
I hope she shares her candy with Uncle Bretty
However, since its now 1:31am and I am finally all finished I am off to bed!
Enjoy your Halloween! :)
