book week

Eowyn costume in progress

It’s book week in Australia, and all over instagram there are photos of frantic costume making. I am no exception. The parade is on Friday, so this week I am working on Clare’s Eowyn costume. Just a zip, hems, an undershirt, and another lower sleeve to go. Somehow I only cut one lower sleeve, and I’m out of fabric. Stay at home dad has a trip to Darn Cheap ahead of him today….

  1. Wow – that’s a great costume! I escaped book week costume making, as usually it went like this: Me: come on, we need to leave in 5 minutes. 10 year old boy: I’m looking for a pink t shirt. Me: you don’t have a pink t-shirt. All your t shirts are black.Why? Boy: It’s book day today and I’m a little pig/ hobbit/ wizard/ spider etc.

    Or, like this: Me, at school gate: Hey, that kid looks like Aragorn. And there’s harry potter. Him: oh, maybe it’s bad hair day. I thought it was next week.

    Anyway – Eowyn is gorgeous and lucky to have a mum like you!
