The costuming has begun

Not only has the costuming begun, but outfits for the four of us are nearly complete! These photos are not of the best quality. Still, you'll get the picture.

Hermione in her Gryffindor robe. Had to make the robe, as those in the store simply don't make the cut. I lucked out in my thrift store browsing and found a grey v-neck sweater & maternity skirt that I chopped way down to re-size. Hermione is very pleased.

This is Astrid, the viking girl (costume not quite complete). She's a dragon trainer, not a slayer. You may recognize her from the movie How to Train Your Dragon.

And most of the makings for my Jane Sparrow custome. I love the hat. The jacket, shirt & belt are all thrift store finds. I came across the jacket - just need to fix a few buttons - and I knew this was to be a pirate year for me. I think I'll wear my bond girl boots.

As for Dan... We simply will not permit his preferred grumpy old man costume. He's going to be Stoick the Vast - also a viking from How to Train You Dragon - who is incredibly strong but rather unintelligent (according to Wikipedia). I found a perfect thrifted horned helmet so that settles it.

  1. Wow, I'm impressed! I especially love the furry boot on your Viking, which are really cracking me up, and the fact that the grown-ups dress up too!
