Strawberry Shortcake

Here is the costume I submitted for the SYTYC challenge this past week.  My daughter wanted to be Strawberry Shortcake this year for Halloween.  Actually she wanted to be Hello Kitty and Strawberry Shortcake, but there was no way I was going to be able to combine those two into a costume. I went for the "old school" Strawberry Shortcake versus the newly designed one.  I guess I just prefer her better since she's the one I recognize from my childhood.  The outfit includes hat, dress, pinafore, bloomers, painted green striped tights and trick or treat bag.

For the hat, I painted the strawberries on the fabric, added a stuffed strawberry to the top and finished it off with a bow. My neighbor did a terrific job modeling the hat for me.

Of course the costume wouldn't be complete without a strawberry trick or treat bag. This was my favorite part of the outfit and she could use it for a purse after Halloween is over.


  1. Seriously, you are so good. LOVE IT! Kate gets a store-bought costume. Poor girl. :)

  2. Wowieeee! That is awesome! I LOVED Strawberry Shortcake as a kid. You did a fabulous job. Thanks for linking at One Artsy Mama!

  3. Super cute costume! My favorite party as a kid was a dress up Strawberry patch party, I was the lemmon girl. I would love for you to share your tallents at my weekly linky.
    Come strut your stuff.
