Dude, My Little Ponies are amazing! My sisters and I used to have a bunch of them. Good costume idea
My friend has the idea that her and I go as Early and Late Victorian women. She's doing the late with the bustle and I'm doing the ever intimidating hoopskirt *cringe* of the early Victorian. I found Simplicity patterns to make the key items, like the dress and corset. The hoopskirt...Is it still possible to get the bell shape with really big petticoats?
If that falls through, I'm really wanting to go as a broken marionette since I have good makeup (at least I think so xD). What I'm planning on doing is doing it like the ones from Doctor Who, as suggested by one of my friends, with the 18th century look. *shrug* And I'm making a "mini me" marionette so people get the idea a little easier *crosses fingers*
I've read all of this thread, and all costumes sound awesome! Can't wait to see the final results! *29 days!...I think
