This year our youngest daughter, when asked what she wanted to dress up as for Halloween, responded quite simply “a bird”.
At that moment I had no idea of the many hours of work that lay ahead for me. She chose a picture of the bird she wanted to be and it was my mission to bring it to life . . . here it is! The costume is made up of two separate pieces: a lined hood and a separate jacket that has movable wings instead of arms. The feathers are sewn on by hand, which alone took approximately 7 hours. In keeping with my belief that it’s all about the details, there are even eye lashes!
