Loving The Jungle Book as a child, I was ecstatic when the movie was remade and finally in theaters this month. The story of Mowgli, the "man-cub" growing up in the jungle as being raised by wolves does so much more than make you relive your childhood favorite. The original animated and the new live-action film have their similar storylines and characters but offer a much difference cinematic experience.

Instead, the movie features three pixies with eclectic costumes. With my six year old daughter dressed as Maleficent, the baby in a baby Aurora costume, and my husband wearing his Maleficent crow costume, it only seemed fitting I make myself a Flittle costume. Because we all know the pixies as iconic Read More... {Read More...}
