Climbing Kitty

It is coming close to Halloween you know, so the kids have been talking about their costumes. For the last part of the summer, Charley has been talking about Climbing Girl and Climbing Kitty - superheroes. She first wanted to be Climbing Girl, with orange and green leggings. Then it morphed into Climbing Kitty. So, together we drew up an outfit complete with colors - because Charley is not one to trifle with and she will have a fit if you don't read her mind and who needs that, for the fourth time that day? I made the costume a bit early because Charley was invited to a super hero birthday party - so the good thing it is ready for Halloween.

I used the Lil Blue Boo Sienna 2.0 pattern and made a pattern for the cape (which I cut incorrectly and had to fix - which is why is is short). I found the mask template on the internet then shrunk it on the copier.

I like how the satin looks, but it is seriously miserable to work with - slippery and it frays. I had trouble finding a lightening bolt embroidery pattern, so I did an appliqué instead.

We got ready for the party. Put streaks in her hair, added her kitty ears.

Seriously cute right? Turns out the party was the next day. Charley was so excited, then so disappointed. I apologized profusely, then offered her chocolate milk and everything was fine.

So Chatch went to the party the next day and had a lot of fun.

Here are the kids showing their muscles.

Here is my little challenge with hair she designed herself.

I cannot remember where we went that day, maybe school? I had a lot of trouble getting so many piggy tails in her hair. When I saw she grabbed almost every clip out of the drawer, I couldn't figure out how I was going to make it work. But, I saw that pouty face (she has my number, eh?) and figured it out.
