I’m a big Tim Burton fan, (and lover of all things Johnny Depp), so I talked my 3 year old, Sophie, into being Edward Scissorhands for Halloween. I had to get her to watch the movie to fully convince her.

Her costume was very easy and inexpensive to make. I started with a black turtleneck and leggings. And to that I added black duck tape, belts and random leather straps/zippers for embellishments. I attached everything with heavy duty velcro tape. For the scissorhands I used black gloves and hot glued foam poster board I had cut and spray painted as scissors to them. Did her makeup, teased up her hair and sprayed it black.

It was an award winning costume and a definite jaw dropper! Looking forward to next Halloween already!
