So. Back to Candy Corning.
[If those who assemble scrapbooks can make it a verb, I reserve the right to do the same.]
Do you need an easy costume to whip up? All this is, is an A-line jumper cut unto three sections out of felt, finished with bias around the neck and arms, buttons as closures.
The conical confection cap is cut from some foam board, taped inside with duct tape [real classy, I know].
On the outside, I used tiny brads to really keep it together by poking a hole with my little scissors first, then inserting and opening the brads. I also attached an 1/8" elastic for the chin strap by tying a knot first and poking the brad through the center.
This was what inspired my Candy Corn projects. When Olive was a baby, two of my friends also had 2-month old infants. One of them suggested we dress them as a trio of candy corn, so I made identical candy corn costumes for all 3.
Believe it, or not, this is the exact same costume.
I told Azure, no way are you going to be able to fit in that.
I was wrong.
She was happy.
And happened to have some matching shoes.
That's my girl.
