Where has time gone?? The 2nd half of summer flew by! Ever since seeing Cirque du Soleil – Kurios, a Cabinet full of Curiosities on July 4th while they were in Denver, we have been brain storming and designing our character costumes. Miss M has not wavered from being “Klara from Cirque du of the Sun” for Halloween this year.
After finding images online, she drew the “patterns” of what was needed for each costume. I then spent a couple of weeks of searching Etsy, Ebay, Amazon, even Walmart for items closely matching our idea, and discussing materials with an artist friend, I think we pull off some pretty good looking Cirque du Soleil characters! And thankfully, Greg’s grandmother use to play the accordion!
(Cirque images found on Google Images, drawings by Miss M, and our little family photo booth shoot.)
Miss M also had a bit of fun with the wireless remote we set up to take some photos!
This was my first time ever doing face paint. I was instructed that for the real Fall Festival later this month, that I needed to make it “more wavy.”
