First off, thanks for the compliments! The wig is two halves that were sewn to strips of fabric that were then sewn inside the edges of the hat (which happened to be cut out of all of those pictures..) It was a raggedy-ann style muffin top type hat. The whole thing just sort of sat ontop of her head and was pinned to her braided hair underneath.
Our dog is amazing! She's half pit bull and solid muscle, but the sweetest, most well-behaved, baby of a dog. The wings bothered her a little at first, but watching her spin around in circles trying to grab them with her teeth (hence, the holes) was hilarious anyway. A few "Leave-it's" and she was fine until we decided we had tolerated our whim enough and took the costume off!
I love having such a good puppy. There's nothing quite like going to the dog park and making all the other dogs look like doofuses.
amaryllisrose- thank you for posting that! Im not sure how i missed it. when i first thought of this i thought it would be a cool swap, but to me, personal interpretation is important. So owning and using MY OWN deck is a cool idea, hence a craftalong
Anjelle- I'd love to see the cards you make, I'm very interested in the different ways people interperet each card.
This is my sister's costume. I made the entire thing from scratch (excluding the tights and shoes). It's the most complete outfit i've ever made, so im pretty proud. You can't see all the pieces because she was wearing a hoodie.
This was the first year she went trick or treating with her friends instead of us, so my mom and i were sitting around her house feeling left out. We got the woderful idea to dress up the only baby we have left. So we rooted through the old costume box and put together...
my dog's costume, which i made the skirt for my sister's costume last year. surprisingly, she didn't hate us. She actually loved getting all the attention from the people who came to our door.
