Celestine's Halloween Costumes

And now (drum roll please!) as promised, here are the Halloween outfits Celestine (and I) have been working on!

From right to left we have: Green and Purple witch outfit. (I love that colour combination) Pumpkin outfit (my personal favourite) and lastly Red and Black witch outfit. 

Which one do you like best?

Celestine says her favourite is a mixture of the two witch outfits.  She likes the colour of the green and black one but the tutu style of the red and black one. She's picky. 


Since making these costumes Celestine has been wearing them continuously.  They have been very useful for carrying out a number of witchy activities. Such as...

Thinking up mischevious spells....

Having tea parties with her pumpkin tea set...


...staring into her crystal ball...

....and flying across the night sky on her broomstick.


The pumpkin tea set by the way (for any miniaturists who may be reading this post) is by Sally Meekins.  I bought it a couple of years ago and it is one of my most precious miniature items I own.


Here it is in full:


Whilst we're on the subject of miniatures I thought I would show you a couple of my other Halloweeny miniatures...

potion bottles...

...and an adorable little teapot with a pumpkin tea cosy (it actually has a hollow spout!)....


If there is time we hope to make a couple more Halloween costumes, though Celestine's new obsession is designing couture witch's hats so we will have to see...
