The Elements of Fire

Fire-elements After I get home from Rhinebeck, I'll begin costuming in earnest for the rapidly approaching Halloween holiday.  My lovely fake niece Zoe will be a Fire Princess to her best bud's Ice Princess this year.  How freaking cute are they, with a theme and all?!

Rest assured, I'm only in charge of Zoe's Fire and behold my stack of fabric possibilities.  I see all the elements of fire there:  shantung, satin, foil lame and something akin to "novelty" yarn in fabric form.

I see flames licking at my sewing machine already.
