> let us know what you decide!I'm narrowing it down now. I have had a ton of e-mail on the
subject and send many thanks to everyone who has participated
in helping create Katie's costume this year.
I am going to use orange wool for hair ( a great idea I got
in here). I am either going to glue it directly on to the
inside of her hat or cut long strands and drape them over
her hair and secure it with a bobby pin.
On her dress I've decided to use glitter paint and paint
spider webs around the hem of it. The hat already has
a spider and web painted on it.
On the cape I will glue on large clear rhinestones.
She wants to be a yucky witch, so her face will be painted
green with a wart somewhere on it.
If anyone else has any ideas that might look or work better
than what has been mentioned please feel free to let me know.
The joke of all of this is that I do not have a sewing
machine (nor do I know how to sew very well for that matter)
so the dress and cape are being made with fabric glue.
Thanks again everyone - you guys are great!! Sandy
