Candy Corn Fairy Costume

For my daughter's first Halloween, she was only 2 months old, and we got her a ladybug costume from some store. For my daughter's second Halloween, I decided to get crafty. So I made her a Candy Corn Fairy costume.  I wanted her to be more than just a piece of candy corn. So I went to the local fabric store and bought orange, yellow, and white fabric.  I dug through my fabric tub and found my Retro Mae sewing pattern, and I got to work. The Retro Mae pattern (by Jane McKinlay Cluff) only has ruffles on the back of the romper, but I decided to added ruffles to the front as well. After I completed the romper part of the costume, I visited the fabric store again to purchase a couple orange feather boas, and I went to the Dollar Tree to buy the orange fairy wings. I used my hot glue gun to glue the feather boas onto the wings. I am very pleased with this costume. Too bad children outgrow things so fast...

I added snaps just in case we might need to change  her diaper.


I used leftover fabric to make the headband for my little Candy Corn Fairy.

Here's my Candy Corn Fairy trick-or-treating with Daddy on Halloween. It was a little chilly so she wore a turtleneck and leggings under her costume. Daddy is attempting to be Michael Jackson... We had a blast! I look forward to dressing my daughter (and son) up again this Halloween. She is five years old now!

    3. So adorable! My grandmother used to sew costumes for me and my sister. I'm a beginner at sewing, but hope to one day be able to do something like this. And I loved the Michael Jackson costume!

    6. Aww she is too adorable T'onna! I love the way she is smiling in that costume. You can tell when kids are happy to be wearing fun costumes.
