Wow! You did a lovely job on that dress! I like the basketweave thing you did in the back there! Also, you look adorable in it! Smiley
Congrats on both the dress and the wedding!

Do you have a Zehrs/Canadian Superstore/Loblaws near you? The Zehrs stores always seem to have a decent selection of Hallowe'en stuff, at least around here (Southwestern Ontario).
You could also try Dollarama, Shoppers Drug Mart, Zellers, or Wal-Mart, if you have any of those store nearby!

Hope you find your tights!

How cute is that dress??!?!?
I am so impressed with the way in which you incorporated the corduroy in particular. Using it as piping and as a belt? Fantastic. And I love the way it kinda swoops around the top.
Very well-thought-out! I hope you got top marks for this assignment!

Wow, thanks for sharing this with us! That is seriously one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

I'm very excited for the pictures of the dress in its tent incarnation!
And the photos are beautiful!

Garter belt and stockings! Those would be especially pinup-esque. If that would be too hard to come by, maybe some fishnet pantyhose? Those would be cute with a sailor outfit in particular!

I don't work for Michael's, I just always notice that in their flyers around Hallowe'en, they show easy costumes made out of t-shirts.

I found the link to the costume idea pages for you:
http://www.michaels.com/art/online/projectlist?categoryid=119806

They sell t-shirts pretty cheap, or I'm sure you could go with stuff you already have that you don't mind painting or cutting up. I like their pirate costumes - so cute! Plus, "pirate" is always something young boys go for in terms of costumes!

Here's another site which has printed tees - you could, if you have a little extra time, make your own versions of these with some fabric paint...

And I'd second the suggestion of shopping your own closets and adding accessories to make outfits. Dollar stores often have foam or plastic ninja/pirate/fireman/etc. accessories, and belting an adult-sized shirt can really alter its look on a kid!

Here's another site I found; it's an online book:

Wow, I'm having way too much fun with this... Cheesy
Hope these help, and have fun taking those kids Trick or Treating!

I love the dance recital troupe idea!! That is such a great group costume idea!

Pink-Josy, I was Velma from Scooby-Doo a couple of years ago. I assembled the costume myself out of Value Village finds (mock-neck golden yellow sweater and red miniskirt, and then a pair of knee socks I found at a department store that matched the sweater perfectly, and a pair of red kung-fu mary janes that I got at a dollar store). I also found a stuffed Scooby at Value Village, and got a mini leash at Dollarama which I strung around Scooby, thus enabling me to wear Scooby like a purse. I already have brown hair and glasses. I also managed to convince two friends to go as Daphne and Shaggy.

It was easily recognizable, and really fun to pose for pictures. For instance, do your best "surprised" face, or pretend to remove the mask of another partygoer... Cheesy Plus, it's totally appropriate around kids.

And last year, I went out as an airline hostess from the 60's (Flight of the Conchords!). I made a minidress out of a ridiculous bedsheet I found at Value Village (white, orange, yellow, and brown mod print), wore white tights, made a pair of flight wings out of cardboard that I painted gold, and teased my hair. My friend went as my pilot, and she wore a navy dress I already own with a pilot's cap I made myself! I like Halloween a little too much...

I like the eerie quality of the piece. Fitting for Morticia.

WOW! Those cakes are both fantastic! The groom's cake looks rich and delicious, but, hey, I'm a sucker for vanilla and buttercream! I'd eat both, of course, and if I were the bride, I wouldn't mind one bit that more deliciousness was added to the dessert table! I think they both look fantastic!
