1  Re: 2008 Completed Costumes Scrapbook! (completed project pictures & links go here!) in Halloween Costumes by paperthinwalls on: November 17, 2008 08:25:32 AM

my fiance and i went as the dia de los muertos bride and groom this year [which is actually kind of weirdly sweet, since we're getting married next year, right after halloween! hee hee].

the masks were cheap-o flimsy plastic masks that i plastered over, sanded & handpainted. the floral headdress was a foam visor worn backwards and on top of my head, covered in silk flowers. i also made the veil and his boutonniere.

the clothes, i admit, were not handmade--the dress, however, is a heavily altered goodwill dress that i scored 5 years ago, and i take credit for all the alterations. it used to have giant 80s sleeves, and no waist--i did a lot of shaping. Smiley
