my husband and i LOVE tim burton films, and this year decided to go as sweeney todd and mrs. lovett.
for my costume, i made the skirt (based on a craftster's bustle skirt tutorial), the corset (based on roethke's tute) and reconned a store-bought shirt.
for sweeney's costume, i made the vest, the handkerchief, the razor holster (which you can't really see), and reconned the scarf and gloves.
most validating of all, we WON the costume contest at the club we went to for scariest category!! while we lost out to bettie page from the sexiest category for the grand prize, we were pretty happy with winning the category, especially considering there were some great costumes!
now, the pics:
