Fairy Deer Costume with Cardboard Wings

Fairy Deer | Mer Mag

This year for trunk-or-treating she’s going as a llama, but for tricks-and-treats come Halloween night, well she insisted on being a fairy. And being a huge fan of make-up (I mean really this girl is all out obsessed with all things pigment) we played around with some deer face painting (she was over the moon thrilled – not obvious in the photo above because she was trying to be so serious – but really she was in heaven). End result: A woodland deer fairy with cardboard wings, leaf ears and branches for antlers. Fairy Deer | Mer MagFairy Deer | Mer Mag We made another set of cardboard wings (so easy and I really love making these – SO MUCH FUN) and then sprayed them with glitter (not obvious in the pics but fun to see sparkle in real life).

The dress is a tad big but I like how flowy it is and that she’ll be able to wear it for at least another year or so.

Oh and fair warning, I’m sharing a load of pics from this shoot/playdate. Because well, I just can’t even…

I know the deer face paint looks is uber popular right now and really, it’s because it so darn cute! I might just have to be a mamma dear alongside her for Halloween night.

Obviously the wings and antlers didn’t stay on too long. Might have to come up with a different solution for the antlers come Halloween knight but it was sweet while it lasted.Fairy Deer | Mer MagFairy Deer | Mer MagFairy Deer | Mer Mag
