11  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / The Sea Witch - Never underestimate the power of Body Language! on: November 03, 2012 10:01:55 AM
The Sea Witch

Never underestimate the power of BODY LANGUAGE!

My Ursula costume is completely handmade--even the shell necklace.


I hate the silouettes from store bought Ursula costumes.  The lady has curves, people!  I created my own BLUBBER from foam and designed the skirt around it.

 

The necklace is made of simple modeling clay painted in gold metalics.


The corset top has hooks in the front and laces up in the back.


The legs are fully posable.  This one took a while.  I couldn't find anything strong enough to hold the shape while not being too bulky.  Wire hangers did the trick!


Underneath, I added a layer of sheet blue material to simulate the ocean (and hide the legs).



12  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / The King and Queen of all Cosmos on: November 06, 2011 01:49:02 PM
My husband and I were the King and Queen of all Cosmos for Halloween this year.  If you've never heard of the game Katamari Damacy, then I'm sure these costumes look really bizarre!

Every piece of this costume was handmade save for the gloves. 





That's a Katamari ball in my hands.  In the video game, the Katamari ball picks up items as you roll over them, so throughout the night I kept pinning items to it.



The Headpieces were made from foam, fabric, felt, paint, wire, and soda bottles.  And, believe it or not, they're pretty lightweight and don't take any effort to keep balanced.  The only problem I had was constantly running into doorframes when I would forget to turn my head to the side.




The Lion head medalion was made from molding clay.  It was a little heavy, so I superglued some safety pins on the backside for more support.
