Heidi, this is so fun! I would love a chance to win. :)
My favorite costume from childhood was a red cowgirl skirt and top, with pearlized buttons and white fringe. The reason I loved it so much, was because the skirt was a full circle, and I felt so pretty in it! It had nothing to do with cowgirls.

So cute! Perfect for my daughter! My favorite costume was a huge poufy, lacy bridesmaids dress that had belonged to my older, cool cousin.

Ok, seriously - this is the CUTEST thing in the world! I hope you randomly choose comment #5!
My favorite costume growing up, besides those creepy plastic masks we used to wrap around our faces, was marie osmund. I wasn't even old enough to know who she was, but my uncle went as Donnie so it was fun!

That's fantastic. Both of my kids would love this but my son is three and especially attached to his role as the resident monster/dragon/dinosaur.

I had two favorite costumes as a kid. One was a tooth fairy costume complete with wings and magic wand and the other was a princess dress leftover from a professional theater production. It was lovely satiny, poofy goodness.

Trinity said...

How cute! My favorite childhood costume was Raggedy Ann. I adored the costume...until my wig fell off my head into the toilet! But before that it was pretty awesome. :P

Thanks for the sweet giveaway!

Another Fabric Addict said...

Hey Heidi! Thanks for visiting my blog! That dragon costume is too cute for words! I don't have any children but there must be something in the water as six of my co-workers either just had a baby or have one in the oven and I'm sure they would love this item. (My family and friends have all been spared from the tornado, but my heart goes out to those who have lost their homes on the South Side of La Crosse and around the country. This has been a crazy spring!)

Sewplicity said...

This is just adorable.....my kids would LOVE it!

Debra said...

kathy said...

allison said...

when i was little i loved to dress up like a cat. my cousin and i would play cat for hours on end by ourselves...our moms said they loved it:)

Mrs. Soper said...

My favorite costume from childhood -- and at the time, my worst nightmare -- in the 3rd grade my mom dressed me as the statue of liberty. I had a book covered in gold paper, and the costume itself was a white satin draped dress that she sewed red, blue and silver stars all over. I looked NOTHING like the statue of liberty, and was totally uncool. But in retrospect, I find it awesome because handmade costumes rock!

Wrongtree09 said...

Cute! My favorite costume was hobo - got to be messy.

NinjaEema said...

My favorite costume was a strawberry shortcake costume that I had when I was 6.

EliMeenah said...

A cow, udders and all was my fave-though I must admit most all of them were my fave because my mom made it a labor of love to fashion up each costume for my sister and I ever fall. Thanks for the chance to win this cutie dragon tail- my kiddo would love it!

Stephanie Granite said...

My favorite costume was a monarch butterfly. It was a hand me down from my older sister but I still loved it because my mom took the time to applique all of the little orange pieces onto the black wings. They were beautiful. I think my sister still has them

Such a cool, creative giveaway! I can see my boys fighting over it. :)

My favorite Halloween costume as a kiddo was a witch. My mom sewed a scraggly wig into a hat and even let me smear green makeup everywhere {trust me, it was a BIG deal}. ;)

Cinnamon said...

That is so perfect for my boy! My favorite costume was a mermaid costume my mom made me. The toddler version had a closed tail so my dad carried me around. Mom made another version with the tail split open so I could walk around in it. It was great. scarletteandcinnamon(at)gmail(dot)com

Jody said...

It wasn't necessarily a costume, but I had a dress that was red with dalmatians on it and it had a belt that was a chain that hung down to the neck of a dog so that it looked like a leash.

Jen B said...

My favorite from childhood was actually one of my dad's. He used putty to make it look like there was a nail going into his forehead. He went around telling everyone he had a splitting headache!

Kiza said...

Oh, this is too much fun. My son currently spends about half of the day pretending to be a dinosaur, so I think this would be a HUGE hit at our house! Thank you for the chance to win one!

Kiza said...

Hrm... I tried to follow your blog, but blogger has been a bit weird with that tonight. It's not responding at all right now, so I've bookmarked your blog to follow when things get straightened out.

Oh! And I forgot to answer the question! One of my all-time favorite costumes as a kid was a set of Wonder Woman Underoos. My mom pinned a red towel to my shoulders as a cape (I know, I know. But I didn't care that she didn't wear a cape when I was four.) and I'd spend all afternoon leaping off the back of the sofa and pretending to fly. It was *awesome*.

Unfortunately as for costumes for me growing up...I had an older brother, so it usually meant my princess fun was out the door and I had to be a GI JOE or football player days! Still fun...just not as sparkly!
Thanks for a great giveaway!
