I just couldn’t wait! This year Birdie – who’s real name is Wren – will be known only as:
The Winged Wren. Kapow! Shazam! Hi-yah!
I had some vague intentions of creating our own no-sew costume out of cut out fleece and maybe some glue. Lucky for me, a good friend suggested a different approach. My big ideas met up with Amy Sather and the rest is history. Amy’s got some mad sewing skills, and we had a blast choosing the fabrics together. I gave her some measurements, my crazy ideas, and days later we got this amazing cape, belt, arm bands, ankle bands, and winged barrettes for her hair. We wanted the pieces to be adjustable enough to fit her past Halloween. I was lucky enough to have the T-shirt from appaman, the leggings, and a spare pair of bloomers!
For a price range of around $40 – 60 – prices may vary more depending on your ideas – Amy will design and make whatever you’re dreaming of (well, an invisibility cloak may be tough, but it never hurts to ask). Amy’s looking for more custom costume opportunities for this year’s Halloween and beyond. Her website is still in progress, so please leave a comment below and I’ll put the two of you in touch!
