Noah’s entering his princess phase.  I assume it won’t last long.  His two best friends are girls, but neither of them like princesses very much.

Here he is dressing up as the paper bag princess (they drew on the dirt smudges and the decorations on the crowns):

Where'd that dragon go?

His costume got shredded pretty quickly.  Turns out paper bags are not the best outfit for strenuous activity, plus it seems a little unlikely that a paper bag would have been the only thing that survived a fire-breathing dragon.

And here is Princess P, one of the superheroes on SuperReaders whose superpower is spelling:


Blue was also dressed as Princess P, but I didn’t get a picture of the two of them together. Noah’s princess skirt was made from the part of my wedding veil I cut off because I didn’t want a double layer- good thing I never throw anything away!

My friend lent me a couple of “official” Disney princess costumes, but he didn’t seem to enjoy them nearly as much. And they didn’t seem quite like I think of dress-up clothes, because they seemed to be designed to be worn as clothes, not over top of clothes. Noah does really need a proper Tickle Trunk- he has also asked for a red dinosaur costume and a pirate costume, but those are harder to whip up out of scraps and paper, so he generally settles for wearing his fireman helmet, sitting in a laundry basket boat with Blue, and using a toy golf club as his paddle.

    I think all my pirate costume pieces got moldy in my basement flood… I know I threw out most, if not all of them. Too bad; he could have had a whole crew of pirates with that stuff. 😦

    I found a really cute dinosaur tail & hood pattern online – the tail has an attached belt with a velcro closure to hold it in place. I am going to Grande Prairie next week, so a stop at the fabric store is now on the agenda. One of the friends I am travelling with has already requested a dinosaur tail of her own 🙂
