[ETA: i'm really confused! i thought i posted this under the general hallowe'en board because i only just now found out about the challenge entries and i was going to make a post here for that but couldn't find my original post...did someone move this here or am i going crazy?? help!
also, as this is now an entry i guess, though i did make both our costumes, since my boyfriend's shirt wasn't handmade (the rest was, though) it's okay if this entry is just for my costume and not his.]
so the day after hallowe'en last year, my boyfriend and i woke up and were petting our kittens in bed and said boyfriend todd decided we should have gone as our cats for hallowe'en since we have one girl and one boy, and we are one girl and one boy. so this year, we did it!!
here are our cats for reference
(black and white is moxley, the boy, and the calico is squiggle)
and this is us!
me (with squiggle)
-my dress from a sheet
-my "shawl" (okay, i just cut a rectangle into a triangle)
-my "legwarmer" (you can see it in the pic of me with squiggle. she's got a spot in that spot on her leg.)
-my purse to match another squiggle spot (it's not in any pictures but it turned out wicked. just a circle with straps on it) - out of a weird velvet outfit that was brown and black
-my tail (also out of that weird shirt/pants combo)
-my ears (out of a scarf)
-todd's pants (out of a sheet - i just made the thai fisherman's pants cuz he wanted 'em anyway)
-todd's cape, ears, tail (all out of an old blanket)
and i painted our faces cuz i used to do it professionally at canada's wonderland. the paint we used was real cheap though so that's why it looks kinda terrible
i bought all the material from a goodwill and a sally ann up the street and i think i only spent under $20 if you don't count the white tights that i wanted anyway. and since october went crazy fast and hallowe'en totally snuck up on me, i made everything in a couple evenings and one full saturday
hooray! tomorrow i'm not working and i don't have any plans, but i do plan on waking up and putting this on for the whole day!
thanks for getting this far! comments definitely appreciated.
