Book Character Halloween Costume: Amelia Bedelia

Book Halloween CostumesCarrie ChapmanComment

Amelia Bedelia became on my favorites back in the second grade. She was my first introduction to puns and wordplay and I will forever be grateful for that. I thought she was the most hilarious lady on the planet. 
Georgia doesn't get the wordplay quite yet, but that doesn't mean I don't read her some Amelia Bedelia every once in a while. 

This wasn't my best photo shoot, but I was pretty pleased with the costume. Especially the hat! I used one of those foam visors you find at the dollar store and spray painted it black. The only way it would hold it's curve was to put the coil under her chin. 
If I was making this her actual costume, I probably would have taken the time to make a pinafore apron. Instead, I found this one at Hobby Lobby for a couple of dollars. Everything else I had on hand.
