Being the crafty mama I am, of course I saw “Baby’s First DnD Game” as a perfect opportunity to make a costume for her from my cache of scrap fabric. I like to call this photo “Olive the Loud.”
The horned helm I whipped up using a pink cap we already had for her and just adding some felt horns and some faux fur around the band. The Unicorn Crest I also made out of felt using a silhouette I found on istockphoto.com, The shoes I made using a Martha Stewart Tutorial. They were absolutely cute and easy to make, but they did not stay on very long at all. Her “chain mail” was just some sequined fabric I had from an old costume – it works as costume chain mail quite well if you flip it inside out and put a tunic over it.
It was a fun pre-game photo shoot, but I’m afraid Olive did not find the game as interesting as her daddy did:
Oh well, it was still a good day of daddy/daughter bonding and a great excuse to get out the sewing machine.
