For Halloween this year, Tiny the T. rex decided to be Elizabeth I of England. She looked through books until she found a dress she liked (the jewel encrusted gown of the Ditchley portrait), then asked her Aunt Rexie if she could help her with her costume.
Aunt Rexie took one look, sighed, and then got out her sewing kit. After all, she adores Tiny. She spent days putting “gems” and ribbon on fabric before she could even begin sewing the dress, but the end result, and the happy look on Tiny’s face, was well worth the effort.
Note: This is probably the most elaborate costume I’ve ever made. What was yours?

Aunt Rex looks better than the queen, especially with that toothy smile of hers.
Thanks! I’ll tell her you said so.
Precociousaurus. One for the books. Next year?
LOL! Love that name! (this is an old post… it got pulled off my blog somehow, so I reposted it)
Wow! this is amazing! Just noticed how the queen seems to be standing on a map in the image, very interesting. I wonder what the map would have looked like during the T Rex days?
It was a completely different world back then. So I need to find a different map for my queen to stand on. 🙂
