    1. Now if she’d only wear it too, I’d be happy. She’s killing me.

  1. Amazing! You need to write a book of costumes you can make with duct tape and a plain black dress :). I’m sorry she’s not loving it :(. At least you have the amazing photos to prove that it happened!

    1. Sigh! Yup, I guess the photos are for me to enjoy.

  2. so amazing! i’m sorry you’re struggling with your daughter. I truly hope it gets easier for both of you! I think the costume was genius and very creative!

    I am so sorry sad that your little beauty. Is still having serious sensory troubles. I think all you do for her is just fabulous. Extraordinary costumes.

    1. Thanks Sheryll, it’s great that you understand her. You are always the sweetest.

  4. So sorry about your struggles. Your daughter is gorgeous and so is the costume you’ve made. You are very creative and talented. Be positive.

    1. Thank you! I’m trying to be positive ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. I think it’s amazing! Seriously, blown away by your creativity. As far as the sensory issues, I’d just let her make what she wants to make and wear. We don’t have those issues, but we have others and in the end… it’s not worth the fight just for what I want. Keep your chin up!

    1. Thank you and I know but she most of the time doesn’t even know what she can handle herself and lets it out on me which is so frustrating.

  6. I love the costume! Sorry she won’t wear it. She looked cute in the photos so at least you have those to remember the costume by ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yes, I’m glad I have the photos!

    You have such made skills, Julia! Seriously gorgeous.
    It definitely sounds like the sensory issues have worn you out. I’ll send some prayers and hugs your way. I hope some day in the future you and your daughter can have so much fun being creative together, and I’m sorry that the struggle with the issues is making things so rough.

      Also, your daughter is super cute. Mine is only 2.5 and does not yet have any strong opinions about her Halloween costume so this year, we’re doing a family costume going as Doctor Who, River Song, and the Tardis. I’ll be having fun making a dark blue prom dress into a Tardis dress for her. She’ll just think it’s a princess dress, and we can revel in our geeky glory. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. That’s what it’s all about how fun!

  8. THIS IS AMAZING!!!!!!!! Your daughter has so much personality ๐Ÿ™‚ But seriously, this queen of hearts costume looks beyond beyond. And the face paint job is impeccable!

    1. Thanks Brittany! You can say that out loud about her personality. She scares me most of the time LOL. She’s a force of nature!

    1. Haha thanks and that’s totally what I was thinking when she said she won’t wear it. I will then!!!

    1. Thanks so much! I love doing it and wish she’d be into it as much as I am. She loves doing it to her dolls but the minute it’s for herself, she can’t handle it most of the time

  9. I know what you’re going through, my daughter was the same way. She would put something on and immediately rip it off. Going shopping with her was a nightmare and I used to get so angry! She’s now 17 and has style galore and looks like a super model. Don’t fret, it will get better!! You’re costumes are amazing!! Maybe she’ll appreciate looking at the photos as she grows older! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I had just always imagined me going shopping with my little daughter and getting her dressed up and it just turned out so differently. It breaks my heart at times.

  10. This is absolutely amazing!! You are so clever with costumes!! So sorry she had problems with it – I agree, think you should just wear it yourself ๐Ÿ˜‰ Big hugs hun, hope things improve, it must be such a frustrating situation for you both xxx

    1. Thank you, I can use hugs with her frequently.

  11. Julia, you did a fantastic job! I love this costume and the makeup is spot on! I know your daughter doesn’t want to wear it but you got some fantastic pictures.

    1. Thanks Darnetha and I am thankful that I have some photos of it and I hope that one day she will love to see them too.

  12. I totally used hour maleficent idea and it worked beautifully!! Thanks so much ! I’ll see if I can figure out how to post a pic of her headpiece and staff

    1. Oh how cool. I’m glad it worked out for you.

  13. The queen of hearts outfit is awesome. Having raised two rather high strung young ladies I totally understand where you coming from. I on the other hand am the one who can’t stand certain materials touching me.

    1. I have certain things too that I don’t like Letia but with my daughter it’s just about everything which is so hard. She goes through periods where she is ok and then periods where she is bothered by everything.

  14. Mighty useful. Make no mistake, I aptaceirpe it.
