El Pollo Loco!!!

Let there be feathers...

And a comb to top it off!!!

Hooray, the costume is complete! My mother in law hemmed up the comb for me earlier today, and tonight my mom came over to help me finish tacking in the feathers. As for me, I provided an endless supply of nillas to keep my little lady happy and assembled the headpiece which is now complete (it was just pinned in the picture). Headpiece: CHECK...Bodice: CHECK...White Tights: CHECK! The only thing left to find is a pair of bright yellow, or orange socks. If you have any suggestions, please send them my way! I can't wait to see the finished product. Three cheers for homemade costumes!

Recovering from the ordeal with one of many Nilla Wafers :)

Do You See What I See?

a baby pollo...that's right, the Ru is going to be a chicken for All Hallow's Eve. Just wanted to clarify in case you were maybe thinking she was going as a baby sumo. I stole the idea from Martha, and although it promises to be quite adorable, this puppy is anything but child friendly when it comes to getting it on, definitely a two man job. The good news is, that once the trauma of getting it over her head was over & she was once again able to breathe freely, she didn't seem to mind it...the bad news, she didn't seem to have the same affections once the feathers were pinned on. :( I spose only time will tell, but I'm hoping the incentive of free candy will make it a little easier for her to tolerate all this nonsense come Saturday night! Seeing as how when she got her first free sample from See's Candies(what was that lady thinking?), she ran around shrieking "MORE" over and over again, I'm thinking I might have this one in the bag!
