Rosie's Ladybug Costume

 Let's just say, Rosie is not happy.  She wanted no part in writing this post and has informed me that this is the 'stupidest' costume ever!  LOL
Rosie was thinking 'Elvira, Mistress of the Dark' while I was inspired by the garden this year.  I had plenty of helpful bugs in my garden and when I saw the ladybug wings in the dollar store I was inspired.  
After scooping up the wings and headband, I knew I had what I needed at home to turn this into her costume.  A black t-shirt from my closet and a red tablecloth were all that was needed.  Yes, a tablecloth, but don't tell Rosie!   If she knew, she'd have my head!  
There was quite a lot of grumbling as I put together this costume.  As a peace offering, I  added the necklace since we all know Rosie LOVES jewelry.  
I thought it added a little 'flair' to the look.
Rosie was not convinced....
I thought the skirt needed some polka dots to carry the ladybug look throughout the outfit, but Rosie wasn't having it.  As soon as I walked in the room with the polka dots Rosie firmly told me it was bad enough wearing ladybug wings and a headband so there was NO WAY she needed dots all over her skirt.  
Trust me - it wasn't worth the argument.
So, I appeased her with some cute patent leather sandals.  
I'm sure you remember the 'Shoe Debacle' from  a few months ago, and, no, I still haven't told her she doesn't have feet.  
I've learned to pick my battles!  
Some days it's a challenge living with a very high-strung' size B dress form!

Happy Halloween from Rosie and all of us at The Apple Street Cottage.

    1. Ah, yes! Rosie's been a part of the Cottage family for about a year now. I've always wanted a vintage dress form and finally found one last year.
