1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Adult: Ruuuuuuby Rohd! (Super Green.) on: November 01, 2007 08:51:00 PM

I was Ruby Rohd from the Fifth Element for our Halloween Party. You know... the guy that Chris Tucker plays? (See Below.)

Except, ignore the fact that I am not black... or male. I am however, equally fabulous. For the party I had knee high boots as well, but I have since returned them. I didn't get any pictures with the boots, or any good pictures of just me at the party, so... ignore my socks. I made my costume out of a ladies 2xl leopard print button down dress from goodwill. I used a cheap earring from WalMart for the necklace, I made the cane out of a dowel rod, drawer pull, and leftover fabric, I reshaped a cheapo wig, and I spray painted an old earpiece. Yup.

Anywhoo... more pictures!

(I was interviewing my cat.)

These are from the actual party...

2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Ruby Rohd and Darkwing Duck on: September 24, 2007 08:10:51 PM
So this year for Halloween I plan on being Ruby Rohd from the Fifth Element. You know, the guy Chris Tucker plays? I want to do the leopard suit version(http://img234.imageshack.us/img234/9121/lecinquimelmentruby2ro.jpg).

I bought a 1xl sized leopard print long sleeved dress from Goodwill, and I plan on turning it into a jumpsuit. The dress buttons down the front and has more than enough fabric to play with.

I want people to be able to recognize me, unlike my costume from my Superhero Birthday Party when I was Darkwing Duck. Everyone thought I was Carmen Sandiego because I ran out of time to make a beak. Oh well...

Does anyone have any suggestions about how to make the dress into a one piece pants suit? Or ideas on how to make the wig? Right now I am thinking of taking a blond hairnet and weaving yarn through it and then sewing a toilet paper tube covered in yarn on the front. It might work... I hope.

So this isn't all text (sorry I couldn't post the actual pictures, I havn't posted 10 times yet..):
Me as Darkwing Duck

and me again as Darkwing and my boyfriend as Artie the Strongest Man in the World (From Pete and Pete...)
