I realize I didn't post anything about the costumes preparations for the picnic we done in july.So here we are with close-up and more details of it.
For my son
A white t-shirt and a pair of gray short I already have.The green scarf I wrap at his waist only for the picture.It was a hot and shiny day so I thought it wasn't a necessity.His hat was a straw I fold to make a tricorn.
For my honey
He used what he have and just buy a few accessoiries , mostly necklace and an orange scarf wrap at the waist .Hee already have a tricorn so real easy.The truth is he didn't enjoy much costuming.He came with us because he know how much I want him to join us and our son like his daddy to be present.
I was in vacation in july and somewhere during the summer it was my birthday.I knew I didn't have time to sew and not much motivation for it.I thought a sari would be a good idea.I found it on ebay for 8,99$.The seller also have jewelry so I buy both at the same place to make sure I will receive it at time.
The sari.You know when it's written the color may not be exact as the picture , that's a good example.With time and search I realize in India maroon is more a red-dark pink then the brown reddish I expect.On the picture it was really like brown .I was a bit dissapointed but accept it because I receive it one week before the event.I order the petticoat(skirt)to go with it and the choli(blouse or top).It take a month to receive my order so it was too late to complain.The standard petticoat was tight but I could fit in.You really need a petticoat to wear under the sari because some fabric a sheer.
The color wans't the best , it wasn't perfect but we all enjoy the event and we had a shinny day.It is not possible to ask for more.
