So in our town on 4th of July they hold a Horribles Parade. This is a children's parade, they dress up in either Original, Historical or Current Events costumes an walk or ride in a short parade. There are judges and all the kids get a goodie bag at the end of the parade.
This year my daughter was Cinderella in her enchanted coach. My grandmother made her a Cinderella dress from a Disney pattern. I created the coach. I used her wagon, made the sides and wheels out of cardboard, the frame from tent poles and covered the tent poles with old sheers that I had. I also added a stuffed horse in the front for dramatic affect.
It was so hot that day that she was not really in the smiling/waving mood.
