DIY: Rosie the Riveter (2011 costume)

Rosie the Riveter costume


Whew ... we did it! Here's the DIY Rosie the Riveter toddler costume.  

Saw the idea in a magazine and thought it looked comfortable for a squiggly 15 month old!  Thrift store shirt and jacket, a "du-rag" from Jo-Ann's and a couple of pins from Zazzle.com.  Total: $9.  





DIY: Halloween Bookworm Costume




What can I say ... I'm a big dork, and so is Ms K. So Ms Ro's bookworm halloween costume was inspired by Mila's Daydreams ... a blog that went viral overnight. Sadly, the original daydream pics have been removed due to copyright infringement all over the place. But Design Mom still has a few of the original images - see them here.


Make it!
This was as super-simple costume to create. I bought a couple of nylon garbage-bag dispensers from the dollar store and removed the plastic piping from each end. I sewed them together, stuffed the bottom half with poly stuffing and everything else you see is pipe-cleaners. Total cost: $5. This would not have worked if the kid hadn't been so comfortable wearing her pipe-cleaner specs.  :)
