PinExt Easy Supergirl Costume

In our home, we start talking in August about what my girls want to be for Halloween.  Peanut’s answer is usually very vague and ends up being a creating of her own beautiful mind – which I love.

This year however, she was very specific and sure from the first discussion.

“I want to be Supergirl”

We discussed and even tried on a store bought costume – but this is a girl after my own heart – she wanted to create her own.

We don’t believe in “making costumes” in our home.

We are “assemblers” of costumes – sometime they require crafting skills, but they are generally a pulling together of different pieces and parts to make a unique costume.

The headband is a belt from a Superman costume – and every Supergirl needs some gold eye shadow and glitter.

She already owned the t-shirt.

The tights and skirt were found at the costume shop and the cape was $8 at Joanne fabrics.

In the past we have always made our tutus – but this one fit our needs quite perfectly – so we went for it.

The bracelet is made from gold duct tape with a hairclip pinned on it.

The boots.

Ah, the boots –this is where you learn from my mistakes – that is coming tomorrow!

For now, we are jetting off for trick or treating!

About Finding Home

My name is Laura and I have been running a small interior decorating business since 2004. I have always had a love for decorating but I never fully realized it until about 10 years ago. I live in New York with my husband and two daughters. They support me and encourage me at every turn. I have always loved the “hunt” for the next treasure, especially when you have to get down and dirty to discover it. I feel like it is time to start taking my business in a new direction. I am not sure exactly what that will be, but this blog is about that journey. About finding a sense of home, a place where we belong and can most be ourselves. Thank you for being part of my journey.
