The *Corpse Bride* 

We deconstructed 3 of her old flower girl dresses and added some touches of our own, to make this costume.

Cops & Robbers... and the bag of money, of course!

 

True Crime

 


We put this together quickly based on what I could fit into (baby was 2 months old).  Most was made or adapted... but we new a retired police officer who helped immensely with lending us his shirt!

 

He's definitely a treasure!
