Maura's 5th grade class read biographies and did oral reports on their people. I almost died when I found out who Maura picked..I knew this costume would be most challenging. We pulled it off though without buying a thing! Every parent should own a hot glue gun! It was amazing, but she dug this dress out of the depths of her closet and suggested adding on to it. I say it was amazing because she isn't at all girly and would never wear a dress by choice, so she hardly has any!
It turned out pretty well. She already has the bright red hair so that was a bonus!
