So I work at a place called The Fudgery, and in my store, I have met a few of the coolest guys ever, including my boss. Being as cool as we are, we started a club called the Zombies and Finer Things Club...But that's a different story. We also love dressing up and because Halloween season comes around once a year, we have to spice things up by having dress-up days on Saturdays when we made goal the weekend before (yay insentives!).
ANYWAY! I don't have the best pictures becaue I like to forget things!
One weekend was Superhero Saturday (for which I worked at a different store) and Sidekick Sunday!
I was Robin of Batman and Robin! (Old school, 1960's version btw)
I also made green shorts because a family store in Branson Missouri wouldn't allow green underwear only! I just don't have pictures of me in them because after work I had a Zombie Club meeting and didn't like how they turned out (Simply because they were t-shirt material and went past my fingertips without being to my knee, and that's just an awkward length for shorts, althought I don't go any shorter because I don't wanna show everything off.)
And the shorts.
Next comes Singer Saturday!
I thought long and hard about this, I wanted to be Adam Ant but couldn't figure out for the life of me how to do the colonial jacket, being 16 and only having a week to figure something out. The day before, I ended up having inspiration from an XL men's button up shirt that had an odd Western cover thing to cover the button up portion? It's hard to explain...Anyway, my mother chopped off the sleeves of that and another shirt to make a skirt for me (That I had to sew...How much sense does that make?)...I ended up making new sleeves our of black fabic. I also broke 3 needles on the silver fabric because it was beaded and I just don't learn...Damn hand-sewing!
We also had a pirate day, but I didn't get pictures of my costume, just the pants I made out of the bottom of a plus sized dress because I lost my pirate pants! (Oddly enough, so did my co-worker!)
They aren't the best, but I made them after failing at making 3 other pants...They are sorta gathered at the top, but I didn't make a real waistband so they're held up by my high-waisted belt, and the bottom I cut slits in the fabric to run a red ribbon through, they turned out okay I presume!
And lastly, I don't have pictures of my costume because I ended up driving home (scary, twas my first time!) and in a bustle it's hard to sit! But Mother took a picture and I'll wait for her to post it on her blog. I was Marie Antoinette for History Day (Even brought my own guillotine)...No pictures of the dress right now but here's my makeup!
