the cutest candy corn in the universe
I made a candy corn costume for Alice, complete with little bloomers to cover her diaper. Nevermind that I didn’t finish it until November 8th and we finally took pictures of her in it the night before last, and the bloomers didn’t quite cover the diaper. I used fun fur and worsted weight yarn held together and big needles (I think size 15) and I just made it up as I went along. It’s not really that difficult to make a triangle shape, but I was still impressed with myself. I especially love the hat – Erin Goley suggested a green one for christmas with little ornaments on it. I think I should get on that. I have decided that fun fur joins comic sans in the “things that are only appropriate for children” category. One of the benefits of liking bright colors – I had all of the yarn for this in my stash already, and even an exactly matching orange button to close the back opening.

and from the side
She had two other costumes, but we were only able to get pictures in the pumpkin before she ran out of patience. The pea pod will have to be undocumented, sadly. Here is the composite picture, and here is a link to her giant and ever-growing picasa gallery.
