Above is Mazzy dressed up as a piece of sushi for her first Halloween. Note the wasabi hat. The costume was a huge success. The tuna portion was handsewn by yours truly— the most crafty thing I've done since accidently letting my wedding bouquet flowers dry.
I'm pleased to say the costume remained in tact throughout the whole three day affair (I now understand this is the length of Halloween when you've got a kid).
Giving the costume a spin on three different days, at three different events posed a minor issue however, since the majority of the outfit is sushi-rice-white. Luckily we've got an entire drawer full of long-sleeved white onesies. The tights were washed daily.
Mazzy's costume works best when crawling so below is a video that shows her in action. Please know that no film of Mazzy crawling was sped up in the making of this video— she really is THAT quick!

OMG! That was so cute. Adorable sushi outfit!
Mazzy must be the fastest (and cutest!) tuna sushi in the whole world!
That is one handsome guy! I joke, she’s adorable. And fast!
That is adorable! I love your creativity with the sushi costume!
AWESOME!!! I also note the genius of a creating a costume that looks great when crawling. You highlighted her special skills, I love it! Looks like she had lots of fun too.
Holy cow, she’s fast! And adorable!
Adorable sushi costume, the wasabi hat is a genius idea
OMG soooo cute.
OMG she is adorable!!! I’d like to see her racecrawl in that baby triathlon they do the day before the New York Triathlon.
When is the baby triathlon?? Mazzy will win— we’ll start training immediately!
The best part was I don’t even think she realized she was wearing it.
Everybody thought she was a boy when she was hanging out with the princess. I guess you really can’t blame them for that one.
too cute! and the crawling is adorable.
That’s awesome! She really is fast! I’m hoping for the same effect with my 9 month old shark next week. I need to download the “Jaws” theme song to play while he cruises around 🙂
