It has been a crazy last week to say the least. Two days spent in the ER for a nasty asthma attack and this mermaid felt truly like a fish out of water. Behind in posts, feeling like a ran a marathon but without air, and hopped up on enough steroids to power Chicago I feel like I'm bouncing off the walls. But, I finally got some photos up of my costumes for my 5-cheese ravioli. She had requested a musketeer princess dress and fighting outfit as well as an Eloise at the Plaza dress.
Picture of princess musketeer dress.
Princess dress converted to musketeer dress with fancy hat and sword. She takes her role as a musketeer so seriously.
The back of the outfit with her long, white plume on a golden hat as she requested.
Eloise at the plaza dress. This was a fun outfit to create. Truly a dress that a little princess would want to wear, full of sparkles and glitz. She wears it and twirls and twirls in it.
Back of the dress with big, Eloise bow.
My little Eloise princess at the plaza.
The twins, how adorable are these marvelous little faces. I'm making them Pebbles and Bamm Bamm costumes for Halloween .
Added a few more items to my Victorian booth. Pleased that it is well received and items are selling. Met my friend, Becky, at the Queen and she brought me a small gift in her words. It was nothing small at all. She says she paints a little. What she paints is her heart and she took the tiny photo of Kota off my blog and painted his face for me. Such beauty and delight in her work and when I saw this lovely gift the tears came to my eyes. Kota is such a part of my heart and to see his wonderful eyes and sweet face captured so beautifully made this week of insanity whole again.
