How to make a Wonder Woman costume without going to the store.

27 Oct



Last week, Gia informed me at bedtime that the next day was super hero day and her four year old life would be over if she did not have a costume.  So, I did exactly the opposite of what my over achieving crafty friends do and went to bed.

The next morning after working away I realized I was not going to get away without making some kind of costume.

What we had:
– navy blue skirt
– red henley
– red cape in costume box
– gold Christmas ribbon
– princess tiara
– construction paper
– double sided tape
– the internet

What we (ahem, I) did:

– printed out two Wonder Woman logos
– covered the princess tiara with yellow construction paper
– taped logos on cape and tiara
– dressed G in skirt and shirt
– made a belt and cuffs from Christmas ribbon
– taught G the Wonder Woman shield

I think it turned out pretty cute.  And of course, when I picked her up from school she was just wearing the skirt and shirt.  Gah.
