A witch, an aviator, and Lightning McQueen!

My daughter came up with these super cute costumes one year.  

I know I'm biased, but I think this is about the cutest witch ever!

She simplified a little by starting with a generic witch's costume.  She then added on more colorful tulle, some purple satin, and trim.  Decked out with some striped tights and this little witch is not so scary!

This handsome guy wanted to be an aviator.  His favorite ride at California Adventure is Soarin' Over California.  In fact, the last time we went to Disneyland, he brought his aviator hat to wear on the ride!  (See below!)  She made the hat and goggles and put wire in the scarf so it could be "blowin' in the wind!"  The jacket was purchased, but got double duty the following year when he dressed as Indiana Jones.

And someone I know LOVES Lightning McQueen.  She made this costume without a pattern!  It took some time, but I think it turned out great!  Here's a tip...download images from the internet, print them onto iron-on fabric sheets and add them as details to your costume. VVVROOOOM!
