Thusly I found myself, putting together costumes last minute for the costume dance at CYCM. My daughters was simpler, we did a google image search on Riversong and then used those outfits as reference when we cruised the local thrift store. A khaki jumper, wonderfully detailed belt, and a couple of additional belts to make a holster for a laser gun. Gave us a good start on completing her look.

My son on the other hand has a bit more difficult. The day before he mentions "well maybe I would like to be Robin Hood" (because he found a really cool feathered hat at a free sale) So Supermom to the rescue. I picked up some green fabric, and then during our homeschool group, I cruised to the sewing room and whipped up a simple tunic and twisted yarn belt. Adding a brown long sleeved shirt finished the clothing part of the costume over jeans since he refused to wear tights...geesh! I picked up a toy bow and arrow set at a local Ben Franklin making a simple quiver out of a "tube box" to finish off his costume.
