This year, Claire has discovered a show called Octonauts. She passionately loves this show, and most particularly enjoys pretending to be the intrepid pirate cat named Kwazii. The Octonauts are undersea explorers who help aquatic life in trouble and learn about the ocean. So when I asked if she wanted to be Kwazii for Halloween, she replied enthusiastically. And so here she is:

The eye patch is supposed to be solid, but she felt unnerved with sight in only one eye, so I improvised! I think I had as much fun making and assembling the Kwazii costume as she will wearing it! I bought orange long underwear and the boots, but everything else is my creation. Happy Halloween!

Updated a bit later: And here I am, a gypsy queen!
