I know Poison Ivy doesn't exactly invoke feelings of 'love in the garden', but this character (and costume) has come pretty close to becoming the love of my sister's life (at least over the last few weeks)! We made this costume together for a heroes and villains party she celebrated. A fitted corset (we used an underwear pattern for a good fit), simple a-line skirt, and lots of embellishing by Lauren. Doesn't she look diabolically villainous (or lavishly gorgeous)?!

A few weeks ago we went to a three year old friend's 'monster party'. It wasn't very scary but it was loads of fun. Birthday boy's Mum created these fantastic singlets for each of the pint sized party guests to wear at the event! Each was different and very suited to their wearers. Best of all, the girls could take them home and continue to wear them whenever they wanted to scare (or sweeten) someone. What a great idea Bec!
I made this monster tail and third eye as our gift, and found some great stripey 'toe socks' to wear as long crazy arms.

Yummiest, and best for the big kids... Vegetable cob
(Cut the top from a cob loaf and hollow it out, spread with pesto, add layers of oven roasted and peeled capsicum, grilled pumpkin, zucchini, red onion and eggplant and sliced bocconcini. Put the lid on. Wrap in plastic. Chill overnight).
Most fun to make and eat... Rainbow jelly cups
(Make some jelly, let it cool a little, and pour a few spoonfuls into each cup. Refrigerate until set. Repeat for the next colour etc.)
Which would you vote for?
