Wizard of Oz - Halloween 2008

If you have been following my blog.. you may have see that my niece is a HUGE Wizard of Oz movie watcher. She has seen it more than I have in my lifetime - and she is only 5.

Well, a little over a month ago, we put on Freecycle that we were looking for a Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. I did get a couple replies, and two dresses. The first dress just fit. And I had the fortunate chance to be contacted again and we were able to get a homemade dress. My sister picked up the dress, and had alterations done to it so Natalie would be comfortable in it.
The alterations were made this past week, and my sister was able to pick up a pair of red glitter shoes for Natalie. And was able to buy a basket to complete her costume. So here she is as Dorothy. (BTW, thats my Mom on the steps, infront of the house I grew up in.)

My future sister inlaw Jenny made Conway's Scarecrow costume. Isnt he cute!!

And Wicked Witch of the West (a.k.a Kaylee), had a great time! My sister picked up the costume at a rummage sale, and also had the costume altered to make it more Kaylee sized.

Everyone thought the costumes were cute, and really loved Kaylee's green face..LOL

oh man, I'm a big Wizard of Oz fan too!! I was Dorothy when I was younger...

...then a few years ago I found this witch costume for a dog, and I bought a rubber nose, and voila! The Wicked Witch of the West:


The next year (2007), I dressed her up like Glinda the Good Witch in a costume that I made. I can't find that picture right now...

...this year, I made her costume...as a flying monkey!!
