Ok so we all remember Stella’s costume (you dream about it nightly, huh?) and if you’ve been following along with A Joyful Riot then you may have recognized a reoccurring pattern here and that is Circus Animal Cookies (see here, here, here and here). I think they’re adorable. And delicious! And nostalgic. And fun to play with. Ok, I think they’re all the things!
During my pregnancy I vividly remember a day when all I could think about was those delightful cookies and then the greatest thing ever happened. I went to my baby shower the next day and there was a giant apothecary jar FULL of them! I laughed, I cried, I embraced my perfect twin sister who somehow knew that all I wanted was those pink and white sprinkle-covered cookies that I hadn’t ate in years.
So naturally, an obsession has sprung and the only logical thing for my daughter to be for her first Halloween was a human replica of those iconic cookies.
So we’ve already seen how to make a circus animal cookie costume and a sugar cookie costume so I have for you today a super simple lion costume! If you already have tan/brown clothes then this costume shouldn’t cost ya more than $6! Pretty fab right? Woohoo!
