I love fairies and I especially love Cicely Mary Barker's illustrations and poems of her flower fairies. So, pretty early on I decided Elanor would be one of her fairies. As I already said I love her depiction of fairies because they are not too mystical and weird and also are not all fairy princess-y. They look like flowers or trees. We did the Forget-Me-Not fairy costume as it is one of the few baby fairies. The costume we made is not completely like this one, because we were using material we already had.
This is the Forget-Me-Not Fairy by Cicely Mary Barker.
This is our interpretation. We did not have any pink for the sash, so everything is blue.

Cute little flower fairy.
She can fly!
All ready to go trick-or-treating!
We did not actually take her trick-or-treating... We went to my aunt and uncle's for dinner (which is where she got the adorable basket) and then went to our wards trunk-or-treat (which is where you trick-or-treat from car trunk to car truck and they were all decorated). It was pretty small but Elanor enjoyed it and seeing all the other kids in costume. She also loved reaching onto the candy bucket, picking out a piece and putting it in her basket. She did not get to eat any of the candy (we do!), but she loved playing with it. She was so cute.
It was a pretty fun Halloween!
