My best friend and I always joke that a girl can be anything she wants for Halloween, as long as you wear high heals and put the word "sexy" in front of it (we've always had an inside joke about a "sexy apple", and then our friends ended up being the Fruit of the Loom fruit!) I love dinosaurs, so while thinking about what to be for Halloween one day I said "Well I could always just be a sexy dinosaur." Her response was simply "You are awesome", and it was decided. I went to JoAnn's Fabrics and found this amazing shiny glittery reptile fabric, and I instantly knew it was destiny... so after a few sketches, a few months (I start planning for Halloween early) of being intimidated by my lovely (but delicate) fabric, and a few days of cursing up a storm while it kept getting sucked into the sewing machine, my dream came true:
I made the front tie up sort of corset-style, but I've realized that in all the pictures I posed for I stood sideways to show off my spikes. If you squint, you can almost see it in this picture:
(that's my boyfriend, Dr. Horrible... I made his Stun Ray/Death Ray too)
By the way, this is my first post ever, although I've been lurking forever, so I'm super excited, although I've seen some costumes infinitely better than mine. Sorry that all I can do is link to pictures. Hopefully you check them out anyway! Happy Halloween
UPDATE: A friend put some of her pictures online so I'm linking to a few dinosaur action shots. Hopefully it works. Enjoy!
