Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat

Last weekend, we went to a library fundraiser Halloween Party.  Ben and I made our own costumes, with some help from the internet.  We chose to be the Mad Hatter and the March Hare from Alice in Wonderland.

I made Ben’s vest and ears. He also had a little fuzzy bunny tail as well. Ben helped me do the hat and I made the bow tie to match.

We ended up winning the Best Costume award which is a bedazzled skull head on a rather large and ancient looking book.  The trophy gets to live with us for a year, then next year, goes to the next recipient of the “Best Costume.”

I’m still working on Miss R’s costume.  She wants to be a red wolf.  We read a book where a little princess is trapped in a tower and is given a box of wool and knitting needles.  She knits herself a wolf costume and turns into the Red Wolf.  She escapes the tower and runs around the town until she catches the yarn on a tree branch and unravels her outfit.  It is exactly my kind of book :)

Edit: The book is called “The Red Wolf” by Margaret Shannon
