Friday was super hero day to kick off the book fair :) Yay for random excuses to dress up! I was Harry Potter.... Trying to contain my excitement for the midnight release on Thursday. I used Brittons Grinffendor Tshirt, a scarf made for a previous book or movie release, glasses from the book release for #7, and a cape from my the year my sisters and I were Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather for Halloween. I made a Griffendor crest out of felt and added it to the cape. I made a super mask for me too, but it was deemed unnecessary :)
Pardon my poor lighting (and my crest wasn't that crooked)
Scott wore his Percy Jackson shirt and I made him a cape and mask to match his Zeus lightening logo.
His cape was made from parts of a black Tshirt and was attached with safety pins... He was headed on a field trip and I didn't know if he would want to wear it all day.
Bat was super Hello Kitty. I wanted her to be excited about her outfit and Hello Kitty is her favorite thing right now.
She had a face mask made out of felt, and I modified a ripped princess dressup dress into her cape.
Happy Bookfair to all and to all a goodnight :)

Kam also had a rug she was getting rid of. We needed a new doormat. I painted it brown, cut out the Hi and leaves to make a stencil and sprayed it orange. Yay for a free seasonal mat. :)
This wreath had been long in the making. I tried to make a wreath in the spring out of a pool noodle covered in twigs... it was a fail and had been taking up space in my studio. I finally removed the twigs and covered the noodle in duct tape and then strips of the marigold felt. It finally held its shape the way I wanted. I used strips of felt to make ruffle "flowers" and then spread them on the wreath.At first I really didn't like it, but then I added some fall leaves/berries/mums that my MIL found and had given me.
I am still thinking it needs a bow? But we are looking quite seasonal. :)
