Book Character Day

Both of the girls had Book Character Day at school. This is a way the school can allow the kids to "dress up" for Halloween, without calling it Halloween or costumes. Both of the girls decided they wanted to be the same character - Skippy Jon Jones! The girls love these books because they are funny, but more because that is their Daddy's name - Jon (Paul) Jones - and it is spelled like he spells his name! I made their costumes and here is how it turned out!

Rachel's school had a contest for the best costume, judged by the mayor of Cabot. Rachel won first place over all the second graders!!

Hi. I love this! Great job! My son really wants to be this tomorrow for Book Day. I'm wondering if you can tell me how you made the ears. Specifically, I'm trying to determine how to get them to stand up. Thank you so much!

Thank you! It's been a while, so I'm trying to remember. I know I used a plastic headband to attache the ears. I think I used poster board to make them, so they would be stiff and stick up. I covered the edges of the ears with black felt. Good luck! It was a really easy costume to come up with.
