THE STONE RABBIT loves to dress up for Halloween . . . this year is no exception!!
When he made his decision on what he wanted to be, he thought it would be great fun to show you how we created his costume!
He's a real thrifty guy. . . . he LOVES to use items we have around the house to for his costume each year. . . .
so on the day of THE COSTUME CONSTRUCTION, he quickly assembled the necessary items!
The first step was to determine the proper length of the garment. That was very simple!! I just tossed the fabric over my rabbit, then . . .
I CAREFULLY started snipping away. . . all around the bottom of the future outfit!
I am sooooo lucky to have a rabbit that holds still, as this could be a very stressful time if I had to deal with a wiggling subject!
In no time at all, we had the PERFECT length! This is very important for costume safety. . .we don't want the Trick or Treater to trip over fabric that is too long!I then needed to add a little spot at the top for THE STONE RABBIT'S ears to protrude!
I tried to convince him to leave his ears covered, but he insisted I make a spot for them to come out!
NO PROBLEM! I just snipped, snipped, snipped........ever so carefully.......until . . . .his magnificent ears popped out!
The next step was the scariest part for me. . . it was time to cut out. . . . .
the holes for his eyes.
OMG! That rabbit MOVED just as I was making my final cut on one of his eyes.
Can you tell which one it was?
I told him I'd make it look OK . First. . .
I cut a strip of the fabric to use as a little tie around his neck. . .it would keep his costume from slipping, then I . . .even upped the eyes by drawing black circles around them with the marker!
See, those eyes look pretty even now, don't they?
THE STONE RABBIT wanted me to put a sign on him that said "TRICK OR TREAT". I asked him why he needed that. He told me if he had the sign on he wouldn't have to say the words! That way no one would know who he was when he was out Trick or Treating . . . otherwise they would recognize his voice!
He's pretty clever!
I used PINK for the sign for our PINK SATURDAY friends!
Sometimes I'm pretty clever, too! :)Of course TWIGGY wanted in the photo!
I told them both to "smile" for the picture. As you can see, Twiggy wasn't in a smiling mood.
I'm sure glad THE STONE RABBIT was!I hope you all have a great PINK SATURDAY and a terrific Halloween!!!
