On Saturday, daughter went dressed as Taichi (or "Tai") from the anime Digimon, holding Koromon:
Taichi and Koromon
Blue T-shirt from Michael's ($2.50) and capri pants from the thrift store made into shorts. Koromon started out as a bouncy ball from the dollar store, that she painted. She's also holding a "digivice" that she made from polymer clay. The white socks are part of the costume.
Daughter said she received lots of compliments on her outfit.
