Here's the (mostly) finished costume. This was before I got the hems on the sleeves sewn, but we were running out of daylight, and I wanted a photo before it was too late, because I knew I wouldn't be able to get one later in the week. We also got some cheap garden/work gloves for her to wear with the costume.
And to prove that we really do reuse costumes parts around her, as well as the patterns, here are a few more pictures of her from another project this month. Her class assignment was to create a news article/blog post about medieval events, and she needed photographs to go with her article. My daughter needed pictures of a knight and a king. They didn't have to be accurate; she just needed photos (and the kids come up with some really fun and creative ideas). So I told her to go look in the closet at some old costume pieces. She ended up also pulling out some of the dressier clothes I haven't worn in years, but for some reason still hang onto. The green cape is from my husband's Robin Hood costume (from the same pattern as her plague doctor/grim reaper costume--see previous post for that whole explanation). The gray top is mine, worn backwards, to sort of look like chainmaille. The pants are her softball pants. The silver boots are from her brother's old Doctor Who Cyberman costume. The black cowl is obviously from her plague doctor costume. The velour green dress was mine. The belts were mine. And the Burger King crown is from one of my son's birthdays, that he then wrote "Best Mom" on and gave me for Mother's Day that year--the only reason I still have it. The sword/dagger she made from cardboard and painted. I don't have the version of the king photo were she photoshopped herself inside a castle.
Now I should be done making costumes until the fall when we find out what the Middle School is doing for their musical. Time to think about June's project!
