Purim Costumes

The Jewish holiday of Purim is two weeks away. Now is the time to start planning costumes, not spending the night before panicking with yards of tulle!
What little girl doesn't want to be the heroin of the Purim story, Queen Esther? It's a great excuse to get all dolled up in clothing most little girls would love to wear everyday if they could get away with it! I planned on making a gown for Moussia but when I saw this dress at Target for $20, I snatched it up knowing I'd never be able to sew anything half as cute. I added sparkly fabric for the cape, silver fabric for the belt, some stick-on gems, she already had the Crown--done!
Yosef's costume is the "superhero" Mitzvah Boy. His was also easy--I bought a solid cotton navy blue T-shirt on sale at Target.  I also bought leggings (shh, don't tell him they were from the girl's department)! and embellished it with some felt and silver fabric for the cuffs and lighting logo. A white elastic belt and green cape completes the look.

We had fun at the "photo shoot"...
And, of course the out-takes are always the most fun!
