happy halloween

One of the curses of having an imaginative child is having to fulfill her vision for a costume. Luckily, I am pretty decent at sewing and imagining what she's describing. I had to make sketches and get her approval. She also designed her own makeup (I had to follow her drawings). And, 'lo, Poodlena the Pink Poodle Fairy was born...
