I would probably have to tip the whole bowl of candy into his trick or treat bag - especially if he said in a computer-like voice: "Exterminate exterminaaaaate!"

Suddenly I realize I want to make a sign for outside our door for next year's Halloween: "Warning, Geeky Sci Fi Costumes Will Be Gushed Over!" I should do one for cult film and/or Monty Python references too!

Now you just need a crafted sign for the door: "Now entering the Grotto!"
Great collection/arrangement/colors!

Definitely looks much better than the original!
Such a cool thing for you to help her out with too!
Tell her that she looks great! Er, that a stranger on the internet told you that. Er, if you can say that without it sounding creepy.

Spooky and cute! And wow, put together so quickly!
5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Re: Plague Doctor and Victim on: October 31, 2009 05:15:33 PM
So way back when I posted I then became all interested in the plague doctor, spent a long time googling and found all sorts of online info, and even began some paper mache things - more on those when I get closer to finishing. Here's a woodcut that so many costumes are based on:



When you compare that image to what andiemoon made - well, it's immediately clear how well that costume turned out!

But the fun part is that I stumbled into a lot of other folk who are also inspired/fascinated by the plague doctor and posting photos of it on Flickr. I started off making a gallery of them - and then found so many I just gave in and started a group:
http://www.flickr.com/groups/plaguedoctor/
Lots of costumes, some museum pieces, and some art work in there!

Just wanted to pop back and say thanks again for posting the costume and inspiring me to research and create stuff! See what you started?!  Cheesy

What a great idea - and there are endless ways you can decorate those too! I always felt bad tossing the end of a roll of tape but I never could think of anything to do with them before - thanks for passing on the idea!

I love the layout - and of course, that great quote!

$900 is totally reasonable for how much you did - everything adds up so quickly when you're buying materials, plus you bought some tools that you'll be able to use again in the future. (And then save money by not having to rent!) Translation: this looks great! And if you managed all that - staining the cabinets will be cake! I also really love the light fixtures - I bet you feel like you can see so much better in there now, with all that great light!

I'm now off to oogle the kitchen photos!  Grin

My day is also made better after reading a Python quote!
Love this!

I had sugar skulls in the corners and a border around her but then it got ripped.

Aw, I love what it looks like now - but I also love sugar skulls!
But it's actually even more inspiring knowing that you had the problem and could fix it - and the finished product was wonderful anyhow! (Details like that help those of us still learning!)
