For the last two years Mina hasn't had much of an opinion about Halloween costumes. We chose cool, nerdy costumes for her first and second Halloweens; a Dalek and an Ewok. This year marked the end of parental choice. Mina decided she wanted to be Katerina Kittycat and Magnus would be O the Owl from Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood.
I correctly assumed that the Katerina costume would come together faster than the owl costume. I decided to use fleece because it gets cold here on Halloween. (I should say USUALLY is cold on Halloween.) For the owl legs I decided to make a pair of stretch pants out of cotton knit. Our local Hancock didn't have tan so I bought some tan Rit dye as well.
