Tonight was the annual Harvest Festival at our Awana church club. Normally the girls go as unique Bible characters but this year they wanted to do something a little different.
We spent the entire afternoon together planning, cutting, and sewing. Then we printed masks and did makeup. We went all out!
Denna wanted to be a mermaid princess:
I did make the tiara:
By making a little opening at the bottom I was able to slide a small headband through so she could wear the tiara comfortably.
Raven’s costume was a little more time consuming. She was an owl:
Cutting out all the feathers was Raven’s job while I worked on sewing the wings. She did a good job. We tried to make a hat with owl eyes on it but it didn’t look right to us. We decided on masks last minute. They also got makeup. Raven didn’t like hers so we just stayed with a brown tint and some glitter.
Raven’s mask came from Jan Brett’s website– one of our favorite authors! Denna got hers here. Gus also had a little mask- a starfish found on SparkleBox. He kept thinking his mask was an owl like sissy’s so he was saying “hoo hoo” all night.
Of course, he wouldn’t stay still for a picture!
What costumes are you preparing for harvest/halloween/dressup/etc?
