Two New Costumes for the Holidays

Want to find that special gift for your American Girl Doll for the Holidays?   Here are two special creations from CSBSEWS that might be exactly what you are looking for.   Visit CSBSEWS on Etsy for more pictures and information.

Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball Gown & Mask

Many historians believe that the first American Mardi Gras took place on March 3, 1699, when the French explorers Iberville and Bienville landed in what is now Louisiana just south of the holiday's future epicenter, New Orleans. They held a small celebration and dubbed the spot Point du Mardi Gras.  On Mardi Gras in 1827, a group of students donned colorful costumes and danced through the streets of New Orleans, emulating the revelry they'd observed while visiting Paris. Ten years later, the first recorded New Orleans Mardi Gras parade took place, a tradition that continues to this day.  Your doll can participate in the festivities and masquerade balls dressed in the official Mardi Gras colors of purple, gold and green.  A perfect gift for the new girls from Louisiana, Maria-Grace and Cecile.

Magic Fairies - Chrissie the Wish Fairy

This is the second Rainbow Fairy costume designed by CSBSEWS.   Just in time for the Holidays! Dress your doll as the Magic Fairy Chrissie - the Wish Fairy. Each year Chrissie the Wish Fairy hides her magical objects in the human world - objects that make sure every one's Christmas wishes come true.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and are looking forward to a happy holiday season!!

  1. I have posted this review on Facebook and as best I can on Etsy, and now I will post it here (because I am so pleased!)
    "Incredible! Ordered on Monday, it is in my hands on Thursday! Wow! And here is the review - I hold anything I purchase that I could make myself to a very high standard, and I gotta tell you, these dresses are way above and beyond my highest expectations! The craftsmanship is impeccable, the work flawless, the packaging was superb. I rationalized the $$ as a "purchase of time" for me as I am so pressed for it right now, but it turns out that I have instead purchased collector's items of exceptional quality for my granddaughter that we BOTH will enjoy for years to come. Thank you so much and keep up the wonderful work!"
