costume help...

I always make my kid's halloween costumes and this is when I usually get started. This year my daughter is going to be Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz ( my son is the lion, my friend's boys are going to be the tin man and scarecrow...all of their costumes are down pat) .... I have the main parts of her costume ( the blue and white outfit and hairbows) ... but I want something more to it... I was thinking of putting a blue tutu under to where you can see it a little and also give it a little pouf ... her hair isnt that long and I wont beable to get it into braids because of the way her bangs curl so I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on that or any other ideas on other ways I can make her costume stand out more ? Thanks !

  • Maybe braid some yarn and attach it to a hat??? I know Dorothy didn't wear a hat, but if you could make one to match her dress, that might be cute??

  • Dorothy didn't have braids. LOL She went from low pig tails to having part of her hair pulled up. Do you have a picnic basket and a small dog to put in it? The tutu would be cute.

  • oh, lol.... I havent seen it in years and every search I did of the costume, they had braids lol.....

    and yes we have a basket which i am going to line with the gingham fabric and maybe a mini tutu around it ...and I am going to either put a small stuffed dog in it or make a fabric dog to attach to the ( inside) side so she can put her candy in it ...
