No secret....I love Princesses! I wanted a Princess themed Dolloween.
Julie is perfect as Rapunzel! I found her $5 dress on ebay.
This Disney Princess costume by Build a Bear required very little altering.
The dress velcros in back, and I LOVE the sleeve details!
Rebecca makes a beautiful Belle.
Her dress is another BABW dress $5 from ebay.
Lucky for me, I found Ruthie's satin dress for .50c thrifty shopping!!!!
I love the embroidered details on the bodice and the small pearl accents.
I encourage you to try BABW costumes. If you can sew, wonderful! Worse case....you can always pin the costumes to fit for photos. A lot of young collectors would love to take heir doll along to fall events in matching costumes! This is an affordable alternative.
