In true holiday tradition, my Tyrannosaurus rex Tiny decided at the last minute that she wanted to be a fairy for Halloween. I wasn’t able to make a costume for myself this year, but I figured I could manage one for her. I pulled out the tulle and and butterfly wings and ribbon and got to work.
The wings were easier to make than I expected and stay in place thanks to wire and elastic. Drilling the star for the wand was fiddly, but I eventually succeeded. I hand-stitched the tulle for the skirt, but wound up gluing the seams for the “bodice.”
It was bed time and everything was done except for her tiara, so I suggested we use the one from her Elizabeth the First outfit to save time. She vetoed that, and she was right.
I have to confess she looks way better than I thought she was going to. This project was very ugly in the middle and it’s left my studio a mess. But it was worth it.

That was fun.
I certainly had a good time!
