I made these Golden Snitch nipple pasties for myself to wear to the midnight opening of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince next week.
These are my first pasties, they took me two days to make. The wings were bought appliques, but I beaded everything else by hand. There are small gold beads in swirls between the rows of sequins to make the spiral patterns of the snitch.
I usually wear a standard gryffindor outfit; a tie over a white shirt, grey skirt with gryffindor colours trim, and a gryffindor scarf. My plan is to wear the pasties under my white shirt and unbutton onstage at the costume contest for a big reveal.
I won second place in the costume contest! I now own a light up-noise-making wand and gt a free pass to the theatre (which I used to see HBP again yesterday). The owl beside me won first. Somebody started yelling "Hooters vs Tits!" when we got to the final three! XD
I don't think most of the crowd really got that they were golden snitches, I didn't get the chance to say it into the mike like I wanted to and it was probably a bit hard to see.
It was hard for my girlfriend to get a decent picture of me with the shirt open since I was doing a little dance and closing my shirt again quickly, so here is the best one.
