cornflake dreams.: baby's first halloween costume.

baby's first halloween costume.

As soon as I saw Pottery Barn Kids' Skunk costume I knew it would be Violet's first Halloween costume. And it looked pretty familiar -- I posted about it in 2010 (!!!) I guess I've had babies on the brain for a while now. So I'm happy they are still making it (and TBH I think the new costume is even cuter than the old version!) That's not to say the it's perfect -- for an expensive costume the head was HUGE (as in it fit me!! -- which is totally crazy since it was a 6-9 month size). I had to get crafty and make a few adjustments with the glue gun. It turned out to be an easy fix. I decided glue a pink bow near the skunk Mohawk (so it was clear she was the lady skunk). And I dressed her in a pair of heart polka dot leggings, and a long sleeve onesie, and rose gold Freshly Picked moccasins to complete the costume.

We met up with Violet's boyfriend Pepe Le Pew last weekend and took a couple of photos of the two skunks together-- it was too cute!!
skunk costume sold out (similar option 1 and 2) / pumpkin treat bag sold out (similar) / rose gold moccasins c/o freshly picked / black and white heart polka dot leggings sold out (similar) / boo-tiful black long-sleeve onesie / pink bow (similar)

I'm really happy with how the costume came together and I can't wait to dress up our little stinker again this weekend for trick-or-treating!
