Do You Love Me, Do You Surfer Girl?



I know, I know.  Halloween was soooo last month.  But I would be remiss if I didn't share Harper's first Halloween.  It only happens once, right?



Since she's still wearing her brace 23 hours a day, I wanted to make it part of her costume.  We're all about embracing it and working with what we've got around here.  So, she was a surfer.



She already had the little rashguard shirt (Target clearance section, what what!) and I just used bloomers for the bottoms.  I was afraid she would freeze so I just cut holes in tights so they could slip over her shoes, since she can't really wear anything but socks under her shoes.  I'm usually not a huge headband fan, but she needed to accessorize, so I actually got the band and the flower separate at Walmart and glued them together.  Rocket science! 

The fun part was the surfboard.  I just made it out of cardboard, cutting little door-hanger type holes in the back so it could slip onto the brace.  I painted it and added some glitter, Mod Podging the final product so she could cut through the waves more easily.  



This little surfer girl's belly just can't be contained.



Girl, surfer girl, my little surfer girl.
