Woodland Pixie | Maya’s Halloween outfit 2019

So, I didn’t get in these this year…
I’ve made mild attempts in the past years, but October is my crazy busiest month for work, and this year has been even busier.  I’ve had no time for…well, just about anything.  BUT…I’m determined to still do all the normal stuff for Maya, and attempt to capture it!!
We literally had 5 minutes before Houston was going to take Maya up to his parents house to visit for a few minutes before we ate dinner and then trick or treated. I still can’t believe this was just a branch we grabbed that had fallen down in a storm! I just wound it around and tied a bow in it. Literally…less than a minute, done. ALSO…can’t believe it was slightly warm enough to get a pic without her coat!
This LIGHT!!!
This dress is actually an adult size ballet costume that I thrifted probably 3-4 year ago! Maya hadn’t been that keen on it, but she loved the idea of it for this costume-yay for hoarding haha!! I had to knot it up in the back to make it fit. This last one is so good.  Honestly, I LOVE it, but it’s also indicative of her feelings…
“Are we done yet…?”
On Maya…
Crown- DIY (Literally wrapped a branch we found on a walk around a few times!)
Jacket- Marks & Spencer (thrifted, similar here)
Dress- Adult ballet costume, cinched to fit (thrifted)
Boots- Joy Folie (thrifted)
Keeping it Real…
There was lots of “throwing the basket around” attempts…
None of them succeeded…
But, I admire the thought!!

Happy Halloween!! (2017)

There’s a dragon on the loose!! I honestly felt bad that I didn’t do more of a DIY costume this year, but Maya saw this mask and tail at Goodwill, and it was game over.

Honestly, I didn’t have time to make anything this year, so in a way I was relieved.  Last year’s DIY costume (OMG, is it possible that I didn’t BLOG IT?!!) was super fun, but wow…time consuming and a bit stressful.  Houston took her over to my In Laws early so they could see her in her costume.  Probably the only actual people to see her since she will be wearing a super warm jacket tonight! Every Part of her costume was thrifted.

On Maya…
Leotard- Bloch (thrifted)
Skirt- Hanna Andersson  (thrifted)
Sequined Leggings- A Children’s Place
Boots- Timberland

Mask , Tail, and Wings- Goodwill
