And because Grandma's are cool like this, Hannah's Grandma got her the official Merida bow and arrows from the Disney Store. Very cool. Hannah spent a good fifteen minutes trying to string the bow before she gave up and started throwing them across the yard.
For Lydia's bear costume, I decided to keep it simple - mostly because I wasn't sure whether she would wear it or not. She wasn't going to until she saw Hannah had a cape too, and then she was ready to go! The cape is made from the same pattern at fleecefun.com, although I printed the pattern at 75% to make it toddler-sized. Hers is also fleece, lined with matching flannel.
The ears are from another pattern at fleecefun.com, and are a part of their Halloween Bear Hat, found here. I cut slits in the top of the hood, and stitched the ears in before I added the lining.
Ready for some serious archery.
And doing a happy little Halloween dance.
