The boyfriend and I went to a Halloween party last night (which was super fun), and now that the excitement has died down, I finally have the chance to post our costumes here! I was Daria Morgendorffer from the MTV series Daria (she's originally from Beavis & Butthead, so think back to that era if you can't remember her).
The skirt is a 7" flat band with a 10" pleated section below. I plan to move the pleated section up and use it as a normal skirt now. The original post is in the clothing section, which you can see here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=415195.0
I'm actually somewhat pleased with how the jacket turned out. I didn't realize when I bought the zipper that it didn't have the part where you can unhook it at the bottom, so I had to pull it on and off my head like a regular shirt! It was pretty funny.
My boyfriend was Slenderman:
The jacket is one he found at a thrift shop, took the sleeves off of, and made super long ones. I'd been hassling him about finishing the costume for 2 months and, in his fashion of procrastinating, put it off until the day of the party. He had only finished one hand (actually pretty neat), so he just said forget it for that part. He also discovered he only had fabric for one pant leg, so he just had to sort of wrap some fabric around him for the picture. He's standing on drywall stilts, by the way.
Thanks for looking! It was quite an adventure.
