In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines…
Lived one little girl dressed as Madeline! Read all about Bug’s awesome Madeline costume my Aunt Keren made her over on my review blog. I’m thinking I should rent a nun habit and dress up as Miss Clavel or maybe I’ll make a giant Eiffel Tower out of cardboard and wear that…
Urgh, I have to magic up something by Friday for nursery…it is not going to be awesome like this.
Bug, you’re adorable!!!!
I seriously LOVE the Madeline books. Off to read your review!
OH.MY.GOD. that is beyond adorable! :)
Brava SAJ! This is amazing!!!!!
So perfect! That is a.dor.a.ble.
She looks so adorable!!
That is an adorable costume – and original! I’ve never seen one!
And it would be more adorable if you dressed up to match!
She looks like she just stepped off the silver screen. Just beautiful. You would make a very chic Eiffel Tower!
Oh my goodness. I must have a daughter so I can dress her like this.
I Love It!!! Bug is the perfect Madeleine!
oh my gravy! You should go a Ms. Clavel!
Love, love, love!!!!!
I vote Eiffel Tower. I smell a cardboard project… :)
She took my breath away. So lovely. What a perfect costume.
Miss Clavel would be fun! (thinking of black sheets at Target and how I made a costume pretty quickly using those) BUT you are the Queen of Cardboard Creations so the Eiffel tower would be something amazing.
Bug is precious. That is one of the sweetest costumes ever. The hat, oh the hat, too!
Glad you are having a good time in Texas!
You say the nicest things! Thank you!
I love the costume. Even more, I love Bug’s expression in this picture, hahahaha.
[GASP] Brenda – you have GOT to rent a nun costume!!! That would be so so so awesome! The Madeline books were my favorite when I was a girl – it makes me so happy to see Bug dressed up as her!
I have to keep coming back to look at this photo – I loved the Madeline books when I was a little girl, and this is like she has come to life!
(I did see premade Madeline costumes online a few weeks back, but even in professional photos you can tell that they are just cheap as can be, they are pricey to buy and I bet they don’t hang nicely at all. This is just perfect!)
Eifel Tower costume! That’d be so awesome : )
Hi Bug is adorable in her outfit. Your Aunt Keren is so talented. I wish I could have a little Madeline knocking on my door at Halloween. I better get my pumpkin bought and carved as its a sign I have sweeties to give to the local kids. Not everyone joins in the fun over here, but one neighbor has spider webs and several pumpkins leading up the garden path. Hmm maybe they are American? As a kid we couldn’t get pumpkins where I lived so we had to be inventive with turnips. Not as impressive but they really do look like whizzened, shrunken heads. Spooky. Apparently the circular stone things on our gateposts date from the time we did carve scary heads to keep evil spirits away from our homes. Whoops I’m rambling xxx
O.M.G. I am a longtime reader, first time commenter, and this costume is so delightful I must remark upon it and the cuteness of the Bug while wearing it. Cute!!!
Oh my!! My daughters went through a huge Madeline Love In phase and would have died for this costume X2! Completely adorable on her.
Most adorable thing I have ever seen!
P.S. if you cut a 6″X 20 strip piece of white poster board, make it into a flat cylinder, secure it on top of your head with a white scarf crossed under your chin and tied in back, drape your whole bod with black fabric: viola! chez nun!
or go to threatrehouse.com for a cheap habit.
How absolutely perfect! Glad Bug likes it!
Not so very, very long ago I had a five-year-old who had to have a “pumpkin” costume. I made one, sewing diamond shaped pieces together,,,I even made a facing for inside the neck and a hook and eye. At the bottom I sewed bias tape and inserted elastic, then sewed across the middle to form leg holes. This was to be stuffed with crumpled up newspaper to make it nice and fat.
Alas, and alack!!! She wore the costume upside down and strapless and with the pixie hat. As she paraded across the stage at Middleton Valley Elementary School her brother and two sisters wished they could find a hole to fall into. Everyone knew who she belonged to.
That is just the cutest thing ever!
BTW, You’re the best. I just never comment.
Fantastic, adorable and original! Bug is very, very cute.
Oh, my! That is the cutest costume I have ever seen. She is adorable!
Oh your aunt Keren is super awesome. Bug looks adorable in her costume.
This is fabulous.
She is soooo stinkin ADORABLE! I think it would be perfect if you went as a nun!!!!!! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!
