Rainbow Bright and Twink

Pattern: Paige and mae petty skirt by Violet Field Threads and Simplicity 2788

Fabric: Kona Cotton, faux fur, nylon strap, and felt from joanns

I already posted about my cousins costume. These are the costumes I made for my two little ones. Rainbow Bright and Twink the sprite. I loved this cartoon when I was little so thought it would be super cool to do. However very few people new who rainbow bright was and the two year old thought she was wearing a rainbow dash dress….. oh well, I thought it was awesome.

My inspiration for these costumes actually came from a couple of places. One was a blog I read HERE from pinksuadeshoe. She did a mommy and me costume. I used her method for making the twink costume. The only issue I had was the clips I used didn’t attach to the faux fur that well. But, to recap so you don’t have to click the link if you don’t want to. Basically I used the simplicity 2788 pattern and made the pumpkin but with faux fur and omitted the stuffing. I then made the belt using nylon strapping and a kam snap so it would be removable. The antennas are made from piping, felt, hair clips, and hot glue. I used an old sheet I had sitting around for the lining fabric. Love doing a little upcycle to save some money!

For Rainbow Bright there were several examples I saw online that where super duper awesome and helped me come up with what I wanted to do. I made it from Kona Cotton. I used the Paige dress from Violet Field Threads. I made a few changes though. First I added piping to the sleeve flutters. Rainbow Bright has poofy white trim but I thought this looked better. I added the red contrast on the waist and shoulders as well as the hello on the bodice to mimic the jumper look of the actual character. The rainbow patch on the front I purchased on etsy and sewed on last. I also used the same white sheet that I used to make twink, to make a petty skirt to give the costume a little more poof. That was so simple to make but it is a lot of ruffling.

Twink is wearing a red onesie underneath and rainbow leggings. Rainbow Bright is wearing rainbow leggings on both her arms and legs. I chose this way so all the rainbow parts would match. Twink is just wearing red socks as she doesn’t really wear shoes yet, but for Rainbow Bright I purchased some red “cat and jack” high tops from Target that were perfect. Plus the target brand is so freaking affordable.

My favorite part of Halloween are all the cute costumes. They are one of my favorite things to sew. This was also Rainbow Brights first year to go trick or treating and that was a huge his too.

Thank you so much to my photographer at Beloved Images Photography for taking the super duper photos for me.
