Day 175: The Grinch

 

For the sixth day of Christmas themes (halfway) I have decided to take on the theme of The Grinch and dress up as the character Cindy Lou Who. Interesting fact, the little girl was played by Taylor Momsen, of Gossip Girl fame. If only she was still as sweet. Please note that it took me about 30 minutes to mold my blonde wig into this shape, but it was totally worth it!

Day 171: Angel

Day 171: Angel

On the seconds day of Christmas themes, Theme Me gave to thee: Angel. A classic symbol for the top of your Christmas tree (right behind having a Star) I have decided to dress up as an Angel. Please note that I used to have wings, but as I could not find them, I had to fashion some out of stapled together paper plates. They worked pretty well to be honest.

Today brings is the first of twelve days of Christmas themes that I will take on leading up to Christmas day. Today I take on the humble Christmas tree, a well-known symbol of Christmas.
