Star decided that she wanted to be Dorothy as we recently reviewed a really lovely book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. It is the original story with some gorgeous illustrations and Star fell in love with it. I was thinking that a Dorothy costume would be fairly simple to make seeing as their school summer dresses are blue gingham and I had one I could adjust. However, because Boo had a lovely professional looking costume I thought it only fair that Star should have one too, so I bought her one from Ebay. The ruby slippers were more of a problem though and when I couldn't find any I decided to a pair of old shoes with glitter and sequins.
So although I didn't make the costumes I did create a little something for each of them.
And here they are. the Little Man didn't have to dress up but wanted to be in the picture so he popped on a pair of princess dressing up shoes. Boo is showing off her stick man but you can't see it clearly. Star is holding a cuddly Toto which came in a basket but she didn't like it.
