So, as you can see, this years Halloween costume was a clown
I decided to be a clown when the idea for the wig struck, out of the blue. That was my inspiration piece for this entire outfit.
I made the wig using a red pigtail wig as the base, then I took a rainbow afro wig, cut it in half, glued it onto two styrofoam balls and pinned it into the wig using bobby pins. I absolutely love it.
The wig didn't really fit me (I have a big head -_-!) So, I made a bandana type headband thing to cover up in the back, and put a bow on the front to make it cute
I loosely followed a costume pattern. I made the base dress in white with red ruffles and waist ties, then hand stitched polka dots in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. I chose to handstitch because I love how it looks. It took forever
, but I think its a great detail.
I went to a halloween party on Saturday, this is me (and my friend, as Alice) all made up.
! (No white face, because my cheapo makeup wouldn't cooperate.)
I also helped a friend with her costume. She was Hit Girl from Kickass. I made this belt, a simple cape and a mask. (only have pictures of the belt, I forgot the cape. Oops.)
