TC requested that Jensen be Supergirl for Halloween this year! I decided to make her costume myself again this year. (She went as a plump little pumpkin last year!) I get great satisfaction out of making her costumes myself instead of buying them in the store and I'd like to make her costume each year if she'll let me! We'll see though..right now she doesn't have a say in the matter, ha ha! Anyways, I decided to keep her costume in line with what I think of as 'classic' Supergirl - blue shirt, red skirt, gold belt, and a cape that covers the shoulders (TC thought this was a very important Supergirl feature!). And of course, you can't forget the red and gold boots! I made her a simple long sleeve onesie out of blue knit and just did an easy Velcro closure at the crotch because I didn't want to mess with snaps but still wanted it to be easy to change her diaper. I wanted to make it a onesie because a shirt would have come untucked from the skirt with all the running and wiggling around that Jensen does! The red skirt and cape are also made out of knit. The gold fabric (it's really thick so it has nice structure - perfect for the waistband of the skirt and the tops of the boots) was a remnant that I got for a steal at Joann's! The boots were made out of felt and I just had her wear them over a pair of her little flats. I'm so thrilled with how it all turned out and Jensen had a blast wearing her costume. She kept saying saying "super!super!super!" and TC taught her how to run around with her arms out in front of her so it looked like she was flying! ha ha! We went out to lunch, Jensen in her costume and TC and I in our Superman T-shirts! Later that afternoon/evening we enjoyed the Halloween festivities at our church's Trunk or Treat!

I love it when the holiday season rolls around! I know it's still a little ways off, but I wanted to get the Holiday collection of bow ties up in my Etsy shop for those that like to get their holiday outfit shopping out of the way! There are four bow tie styles in the Holiday collection and they can be purchased separately or as a 4-pack and come in 3 sizes! The 4-pack is ideal for families with multiple siblings as they can be ordered in varying sizes for different aged children - also the bows can be worn by little girls as hair bows! Visit my Etsy shop for more details!
