I procrastinated over Flynn's for weeks, ever since he told me he wanted to be LEGO Lord Vampyre. This costume sat in the too hard basket and I was left scrambling today to get it made in time for the annual Fox 5 San Diego homemade costume segment tomorrow morning ... if you are in San Diego, tune in around 8am.
I don't know why I put off doing this costume though, I won't pretend it was easy, because there was a bit of trial and error, but I was able to whip it up in about 6 hours.
The hardest part was deciding what to use for the head. I wanted it to be a LEGO shape and considered cutting up a bucket, but then remembered that I had seen large LEGO head storage boxes in various stores. A trip to Toys 'R Us and a 20% off coupon and I was set.
Well, while we were there I told each of the kids I would buy them a souvenir to bring home. Of course Marisol chose the biggest unicorn from the Despicable Me store that she could possibly find ... yes "It's so fluffy, I'm gonna die!" She naturally named it 'Fluffy'.
So, come time to decide what elaborate costumes I have to make for Halloween, she decided that she just had to be Agnes so she could go trick-or-treating with Fluffy. I must say I was just a wee bit excited about this, because I knew that very little actual work would need to be done by me for this one.
If you are looking for a big sister gift then I've got the perfect one for you.
I have loads of goodies for you today including a giveaway of Zoe's Room (No Sisters Allowed) and Zoe Gets Ready, a free template and tutorial to make the adorable crown above and there are Zoe activity sheets to download and print too.
I recently received a delivery from Plaid of the new Mod Podge Mod Melts and Mod Molds. There are a few different Mod Molds available to use with the Mod Melts, and a couple of different Mod Melts too. I received the 'royal icon' mold with the 'milk glass white' Mod Melts. They must know me so well. As soon as I saw those tiny crown molds I knew I had to make something for Miss M.
Using the Mod Melts and Mod Molds is really easy to do.
I love seeing my work featured around the web and in print, however, please only use one image (which should be credited and linked to the original post) and do not re-publish recipes or tutorials. Thank you.
