Year after year my friends and I rack our brains months before Halloween to come up with the most creative costumes! A friend came across this idea for a Four Seasons Girl’s group costume online and we immediately began working. I was Fall and my friends were Summer, Spring, and Winter. All the tutu’s were handmade, which made for many nights of cutting and tying tulle!

We used accessories based on our season, such as the faux squirrel on my head band. We gathered leaves, flowers and Christmas accessories in bulk from a local craft store and believe it or not by October there was Christmas decor everywhere. Under all the festive accessories we used solid tank tops and leotards in colors to match our seasons.

The glue gun was our best friend over the course of the month! All flowers, headbands, leaves, and garland were glued to felt and pinned on or glued right to our tops. In the end our hard work paid off and we won best costume in a contest!
