Today I got busy making a costume for Marguerite. I didn't want to buy one, unless it cost as little as this one. I decided to make a kitty cat costume for her since Marguerite's lovey is this bedraggled stuffed cat that she schleps around everywhere. So I was going to make a leotard from an old pair of tights, but saw Marguerite's black tank top, so I ended up just adding sleeves and patches of black fur to it.Basically, my materials were my old black tights, my old faux fur stole, and an old plastic hairband. There were Marguerite's own top and tights, of course, which I just embellished with the stuff I mentioned.
I let Marguerite try the costume on and we ended up spending the afternoon as cats, as evidenced in the following (technically, I'm some sort of leopard as per my hairband and scarf):
The thing with Marguerite is that she knows how to internalize the roles she is given. Um, yeah, that's her eating her snack.
Here is a picture of Marguerite convincingly acting like a feral child.
