Welcome to part three of my Carnival 2013 series – I hope you had a great weekend so far and it’s about to get even better… For today’s costumes I came up with two 1940′s inspired little fox and rabbit costumes and the best thing about them is that once you remove the masks, your little ones are perfectly dressed for any formal occasion ! Take a look…
For Nick’s costume I combined a pair of plaid pants with suspenders, black brogues, a white dress shirt and a burgundy bow tie with a sparkly fox mask. He is a huge fan of bow ties and has an entire collection of them by the way, so the bow tie was our starting point and the whole costume grew form there !
As you can see, when it comes to kids flexibility is key and since Nick liked the white rabbit mask much more he just ended up with the fanciest little rabbit costume… the only thing missing here is a magician !
When I come up with ideas for a costume or an outfit in general, I like to go through all the closets and really see what we can work with. I pull together great pieces and try to think outside the box and combine them in fresh and slightly funky ways. The only thing I really bought for Charlie’s costume was the cute rabbit mask – everything else we already owned and things just fell into place somehow.
The little faux fur vest is one of Charlie’s fall fashion staples and adding a little fur to a bunny costume was pretty much a no-brainer. The pale pink dress with with the Peter Pan collar was a birthday gift and I just love its vintage feel. The pearls and the beaded satin bag (which I picked up years ago in China Town on my NCY honey moon…) complete the outfit and everything looks just so soft and sweet together – just like a proper little rabbit should be, don’t you think ?
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and if you liked what you saw, don’t forget to come back tomorrow for the last part of our Carnival photo session !
