Our Frost Fairy

Wow!!!!! This year was stressful when it came to Ruby deciding what she wanted to be for Halloween. I'm sure she is like most 5 yr olds changing her mind 10 times a day. But she literally has been talking about what she wants to be this Halloween since last Halloween. She was all over the place. She went from The Little Mermaid to Rapunzel to an Indian to an Avatar. Near the end I heard things like The Statue of Liberty to The Bride of Frankenstein.....I really wish I would have made a list of all the things she went through. But ultimately I was so happy when she stuck with The Frost Fairy idea, even though she just made up her mind 1 week ago. I think she make such a beautiful Frost Fairy, and I had so much fun making the costume.

I was actually super lucky that stores were starting to put out Christmas decorations, because that is pretty much how I was able to pull this costume off and put it together.
The wings - 2 Branches for decorating Xmas trees that I just attached together
with wire and glue
The headband - One of my ribbon wrapped headbands that I just attached the snowflake
ornaments to with glue using my favorite E6000
The wand - painted dowel with a snowflake ornament attached and embellished
with ribbon and tinsel
For the bodice I bleached a pink leotard and embellished it with white fringe yarn
The Skirt - Tons of tulle and a cheap sheet and ribbon.
I just went with it on this one. I knew how I wanted it to turn out and I just whipped it up.
The key to everything was just using my imagination.
It was so fun to put this together and I am sooooo glad that Ruby gets to wear it 3 times this year.

The wings are definitely my favorite part. I just love how it makes the whole thing sparkle.

We sprayed glitter everywhere and she loved it. She kept wanting more and more. A girl after my own heart. Loves the glitter.

This picture was Ruby's idea....she said "mom take a picture of me looking down like this."

The classic Halloween parade at school...I didn't send the wings, cause I didn't want them to get ruined. But she still looked pretty darn adorable.

Oh how I love this little princess of mine. That shy little smile that makes my heart melt. You are the cutest Frost Fairy with the sweetest personality.
