|Father Time from Rudolph's Shiny New Year|
I found a really nice robe at a thrift store for $3! I couldn't find something like a scythe so I went with an old clock. I also got that from the thrift store it was $4. It still works! Now the hard part was finding a wig and beard. After searching online, I finally decided to give Party City a try. They can get a little expensive. I was happy that I found that beard for $4.99. Not to bad. It was a plush beard with moustache and I found it with the Christmas costumes. Although this beard was nice and soft, it shed!!! But i found a purpose for the shedded hair. I used it for the eyebrows. His hair is just an old pair of white stockings from my 4 year old.
Baby New Year was very simple to make. Top hat, Sash, and cloth diaper. Well of course I couldn't find a new year sash but I found the next best thing. I went to Hobby Lobby and just bought satin white ribbon. After my 40% off coupon I think I paid $1.70. I painted New Year onto the sash using black acrylic paint.
I bought the top hat and horn from Party City. The hat was $1.50 on clearance and the horn was $0.40 on clearance. I had some tinsel left over from Christmas so Ididn't need any. I did however buy some necklaces.
The necklaces and tinsel kept him occupied long enough to get through the shoot. It was about 40 mins total.
I couldn't come up with a actual theme or costume for my daughter so I just dressed her up with party favors. She was so easy to take photos of. She truly is a natural, very little direction needed.
I am so glad how well they all did. Thank you for supporting my new blog. Hope you have a safe and Happy New Year!!!
