so i wasn't even planning on doing anything for halloween, but my friend convinced me, so i made a squid costume! i think it turned out pretty good considering the fabric i ordered didn't come on time so i had to dye it with kool-aid!
all laid out
i'm really proud of the tentacles...
they were over 3 feet long so i added buttons so i could make them smaller
and action shot! see those wiggling tentacles?!
i added elastic to the tentacles so they would stay on my arms, and i put cardboard pieces in the head part so that it wouldn't be floppy. there's also white felt dots added to every tentacle on the skirt. and i wore black leggings to look like ink i hope you all enjoy my costume and have a great halloween!
hello all! i'm not sure if this should actually go here since it's not technically for a charity or social cause, so kittykill, if this isn't supposed to be here, please move it! anyway, i have the opportunity to go to chicago for an internship through university of dreams http://www.chicagointernships.com/. the only problem is... it costs $7,500 to go. this is money that i do not have. i want to raise the money instead of doing financial aid because the deadline for financial aid is october 31, and raising the money will save a lot of headache in the future. i was just wondering if anyone else has had to raise money for something similar and what they did to achieve their goal. i would like to have some sort of sale of crafts, but the crafts would have to be somewhat easy to make, or at least a fast process to mass produce them. i also thought of selling some of my own items that are one of a kind, but i'm really not sure if anyone would want them. any ideas are highly appreciated and thank you all so much for your input!
