This year's themes in school for M are the ancient Greeks and the Egyptians. Carnival fits in with these themes. Her first idea of being a pyramid didn't make it. After googling images of Egyptian goddesses the choice was made: she would be Hathor, goddess of joy and motherhood.
On Saturday M and I did some shopping: we needed golden ribbon and feathers. We loved the black ones we found finally! Sunday evening her hair, wings and dress (super simple but with a blind zipper on the side) were ready to wear, but her collar failed (after my try to sew circles of slippery golden fabric and cotton fabric). After using interfacing for the golden fabric her collar (or do I need to call it a necklace?) turned out fine.
Her wings were attached to the back of her dress by press buttons. We tried and tried, but didn't succeed to fix her typical sun-between-two-horns on her head. So in the end F changed the head attribute into a staff. If L wants to wear this costume as well when she is in the fifth class, we've got four more years to find a solution for the headdress. I'm curious!
Yes, M was proud to go and show herself. And even more after winning a price!
