I finished Bee's Cleopatra costume this weekend.  I had all of the materials on hand except the shimmery blue that is the 'wings' material.  I had all that gold fabric on hand.  I can't even explain why a person would have 2 yards of crazy shiny gold fabric.   I think we've got $3 in this costume.

She wanted to be Cleopatra after seeing one at the store.  It was in the adult section and was a little revealing.  She said, "What is that?  I want to be her!"  We opted for a bit more conservative version.   We did get a Cleopatra book at the library to learn a bit more.

We raided the Christmas decoration box for the gold beads.  Hubby will be pleased, there will be no gold beads on the Christmas tree this year. 

 We are still working on the eye make-up. 

I offered to make Lou a costume, but he wanted to wear his favorite Batman costume.

Bee and Lou had a friend over for a costume birthday party. Lou's son, Cat,  was having a birthday.  He also has another birthday next weekend. We like to party.

I tried to get Bee to 'walk like an Egyptian.'  She was very confused. 

Now that song will be in your head too. 

We're ready for some trick-or-treating!

and possible some super hero work.

Is it the eye makeup? Bee looks so much like Chris in this picture. Both costumes are neat. I know they will enjoy trick or treating. I want to go to our Trunk and Treat night but guess I'm really too old.
