This year my girls asked for witches costumes and my
little fella wanted to dress up as the Grim Reaper.
I had heaps of fabric left over from the girls dresses
so I didn't need to buy any for my sons costume.
If I had to buy more I would have bought a more suitable fabric,
that was not shiny and probably a little bit heavier but why waste what I had.
I used Simplicity 1582 but had to reduce its size by A LOT!
My 8 year old is quite small and the pattern is designed for adults.
I had other ideas for the mask too.
I was planning on using a paper mache mask painted black but Spotlight
had run out of them. I picked up this glow in the dark mask instead.
I don't love it, it kind of reminds me of E.T.
I think my boy is pleased enough with the result :)
