Step 1: The Dress
I don't sew, but I am an avid online shopper. Pretty sure any red dress will do, but I saw this one on ModCloth and fell in love. The dress is called Looking to Tomorrow. Just click on the links or the picture below and it should come right up!
Not up for paying ModCloth prices? I think these less expensive options on Amazon are pretty great too! Just click the pictures for the links.
Step 2: Ears
This was actually much easier than I thought it would be and it's a good thing because I left the ears in Colorado when I moved to Michigan so I'll be making a new Olivia headband.
All you need is a headband (mine was 1 inch and covered with black fabric), 2 pieces of medium thick fun foam (not the thinnest one!), and a glue gun. Cut out two football shapes (one end pointed, one end flat) in the fun foam and do some folding until the ears look like you want. Then glue. Easy!
Step 3: Tights
There is no such thing as ONE size fits all. I am 5'2" and the tights I found at Target were so short they were falling off all day. I was waddling around trying to keep them on before I even got to school, but you can't tell in the pictures, so that's all that really matters.
I'm hoping this year I'll have better luck with these. I just ordered them on Amazon.
Grab a book, maybe even a little Olivia stuffed animal and you're all set! Years and years of Halloweens and March is Reading months are covered!
