A month ago, Ellie saw a Super Girl costume at Target and was completely inspired. One issue: the 7 year old on the costume package looked like a street walker. When you’re four, the last thing you really want is for your child to dress like a hoochie mama. Plus, it was $30.
So, I promised a Super Girl costume. On an errand at Walmart, we snagged a $5 Danskin t-shirt and later bought a yard of metallic fabric. With a bit of creativity and a lot of determination, what you see is a $10, homemade Super Girl costume.
When I showed it to Ellie, she was so pleased… except for ONE thing.
“Hey, Mom,” she said, “just ONE thing. How are you going to sew the fake nails?”
