Okay, okay, I do know. I’ve entered my obscure costume period. I’m hoping that just a few of you’ll know this reference and if not, actually, it’s such an incredible e book that it’s best to go and skim it after which come again and recognize this 12 months’s household costume for Halloween. As you recognize, I like a very good costume and often I give it some thought all 12 months lengthy, however this 12 months it was type of the very last thing on my thoughts.
Woody, Hazel, and Little Pip is a e book by Swedish illustrator and writer, Elsa Beskow. Her illustrations are so pleasant, particularly her books about flowers. I’ve all the time needed to do costumes primarily based on her Flower’s Competition e book, however some boys, I received’t title who, weren’t enthusiastic about that. Hmphf. SO, we went with Woody, Hazel, and Little Pip, which was Jasper’s most requested e book within the final 12 months.
I’m not even certain I can discover footage of the e book to indicate you the reference. I’m penning this from Australia the place we’ve been visiting our household and I forgot to take footage of the e book earlier than I left…this is perhaps difficult. No wait, simply took a go searching–I discovered them. The fantastic thing about the Web, everybody.
Celine Anderson, our intern this semester, took the reigns on this venture and he or she did such an incredible job! She’s from Denmark and has expertise with stitching and artwork and this blended the 2 of these issues completely.
Now we have Jasper as Little Pip. There are cardboard leaves that we added an elastic harness to. A tough nut hat with spikeys for full impact.

Paul because the imply troll. In case you are aware of the e book, the troll doesn’t play an enormous position, however it’s actually the scariest. And the impact of her illustration felt like he was concocted from a nut or one thing. Definitely horrifying!
