Little Red Riding Hood aka Super Grover


Here is my cute little red riding hood girl! I figure this is the last year I get to choose her costume for her, so we went super cute :)

Of course, when I went to try the cape/hood on her, she had just watched Sesame Street, and yelled “Super Grover!!” I said yeah, that makes you Super Grover! And that’s how we managed to get the hood on for all our various parties and trick or treating :)

Best part about Zoey’s costume? ALL of the fabric was leftovers from other stuff! The red is left from Christmas stockings we made ages ago, the blue gingham was originally sheets, turned into tabtop curtains (remember when dark blue was “in”?), both from my mom’s house and going in the yard sale pile (we are doing a serious purge of her house right now; everything is going!), and the white is just my normal white Kona cotton! I even had the white ribbon and the zipper for the back on hand. the only thing I had to buy was the red ribbon and the basket (basket $3 goodwill!).


We went themed this year, so Spencer was the woodcutter. Who likes to pose when I have the camera within arm’s length. And yay all I had to make for his costume was the fake suspenders!

Ok, he kept getting called Where’s Waldo though! Apparently I did a REALLY good job on the hat, since that IS from last year’s Waldo costume…but really, since when does Waldo carry an ax and wear flannel?


And since I know you are all dying to see my costume (hah!), here it is. I was the big bad wolf dressed up as grandma :) $5 Goodwill nightgown, some quick furry gloves and ears, and fur double stick taped to my knee-high boots, and my costume was pretty easy too!

Anyways, I know this post was a few days late, but I have had serious computer issues lately, which kept me from blogging :( But should be all fixed now! Just in time, cuz I really need to get a Blogger’s Quilt Festival post up! Like, today or tomorrow!
