right after halloween last year i asked the little what she wanted to be next year. she said ALLIGATOR ! i have no idea where this impulse came from but i was happy that it was an alligator rather than a princess so i smiled. i said that i would check with her again before halloween time and lo and behold she hadn't changed her mind. ALLIGATOR ! RO-AR !
i looked, but knew i wasn't going to find a costume that i liked - they were all bright green, or looked more like dragons. so of course i made one. in parts. little by little. it took a couple of weeks. if you follow me on instagram you saw the progress.... and the result ?
the most fun part really was the tail. it was HUGE. of course i knew that she wouldn't really wear the head for long - i bribed her with potential candy consumption so she'd let me photshoot at home. she did wear the hands for a long time - until she got too hot... so in the end i was part alligator too :
i'd be fine if she wants to be a ghost or mummy next year. heh heh. but of course her wish will be my command. even if it's a princess [although i will lobby hard against that].
happy halloween. hope you all had fun ! the little is overjoyed with her candy haul. and she chewed gum for the first time.... !!!
