Baby Dress Up Calendar: Pink Lady from Grease

This year for Jake's Christmas gift, I decided to do something a little bit different.  Rather than buy him something he may or may not like, or even rather than buy him something I knew he would like, I thought it would be fun to make him something.  Bonnie Ann has her dad wrapped around her little finger, so I knew that she had to be involved in it somehow.

My idea?

I would make a calendar for him of Bonnie Ann dressed up as a different character from a TV show or movie each month.  I had seen it done a couple times before, so I wanted to try it out!

Over the next couple weeks I'm going to add all the pictures to the blog, but for now I'll give you a list of what I did as well as the first month's pictures!

January: A pink lady from Grease
February: Gladiator from Gladiator
March: Minion
April: Munchkin from The Wizard of Oz
May: Pebbles from The Flintstones
June: Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead
July: Baseball player from A League of Their Own
August: Jax Teller from Sons of Anarchy
September: R2D2 from Star Wars
October: Tinkerbell
November: Walter White from Breaking Bad
December: Hogwarts student

Most of the costumes I made myself, but some of them were easy enough to just buy pieces for from the store.  That's what I did for the pink lady and I think it turned out great!

For this costume I put some black sparkly leggings on her, a black onesie and a pink light jacket.  It was super easy to put together and I think it is easy enough to recognize.  For the calendar itself I photoshopped 'Pink Ladies' onto the back of one of the pictures of her jacket so it made it even more easy to figure out.  Although I think she's adorable, this isn't one of my favorites of her costumes just because it was so basic.  What do you think?

Like I said above, Jax Teller is my favorite costume I made (probably because it was the most intricate!) but I am a big fan of each and every one.  It will be fun to be able to look back as Bonnie Ann gets older and relive all these memories.  And I will always remember Jake's reaction to seeing it!  He was pretty impressed - and about cried from laughing so hard at Walter White!

What do you think of this idea?  Would you ever do it?

I am thinking I will do one for 2017 as well, but with a different theme - any ideas for me???
