DH has finally downloaded the camera. So I can share the butterfly costume with you....

The frame (made out of 6 wire coat hangers and duct tape):

The wings covered:

The harness (just 2 pieces of elastic):

I didn't like how the pictures of the antennae came out, and she refused to wear them anyway. She wore a black shirt and pants and *loved* the wings. They didn't take that long to make--maybe 8 hours? And they bounced and wiggled as she moved.

Squee! We just watched The Amazing Race last night. We watched the team introductions twice and made our picks. DH picked Ari and Staella, and I picked Nathan and Jennifer. Both teams were doing well until the challenge with the donkeys. Very stubborn donkeys. Our teams were the last 2 to arrive at the pitstop--Nathan and Jennifer came in 10th, and Ari and Staella 11th. DH didn't last past the first episode. Shortest contest ever! And I finally beat him! Barely, but it counts!

The Halloween butterfly pictures are still on the camera. I'll post them as soon as DH downloads them.
