All three of my kids dressed up in costumes yesterday. Ramona and Charles had to dress up for the Nevada Day celebration at their school, and Sienna dressed up in her Halloween costume for preschool and playgroup.
Ramona dressed up as a cowgirl from the wild west . She just wore some of Charles' cowboy dress up clothes.
Charles was a Mountain Bluebird (Nevada's state bird). I cut wings out of felt and stitched them onto the shoulders of a sweat shirt. He also had a felt tail.
Here is Sienna, the Oompa Loompa! This costume was so easy, and got such a reaction! All you really need is a brown shirt, white pants, orange face paint and green hair! I made the suspenders out of felt. Also, I painted some white stripes on brown tights to go under her pants (because it is so cold here). Oh, and we put her hair in 3 ponies...and made the top one a bun. She looked so cute!
Just in case you all didn't know, today is Nevada Day. It is a big occasion here! The kids even get the day off of school. I think it's pretty cool! I grew up in California...and never remember a "California Day".
