Thanks so much!  I shipped it to them this morning and it is estimated to be there on Saturday. I'm so excited it would come on a day when they might both be home.  (He's retired, she's not)

Excellent! My boyfriend is going as Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, and the only long-handled axe we could find looks very plastic. I took it home to turn it over and over and look at it consider how I could alter it (Wink), but this post will take me another step in the right direction!

Cool costume idea!  I'd love to see your project when you're done.

Thanks y'all!  I have found and installed the perfect finishing touch for the base today!

Lovely story and great wedding cake topper.  I think you captured the essence of the old photo.

Thanks!  If they want to put it on their cakes, I hope they take pictures.

Twenty-five years ago at the end of October two of my dearest friends got married (a couple years before I met them).  They had a Halloween/costume party reception where they cross dressed the bride and groom parts.  Their daughter (her bio, his step) is throwing them a party to celebrate and posted this pic of them from then as part of the invitation. I can't go because I moved away, but I decided to make them a little something to honor their commitment.



I tried to put in the more important details, but didn't worry too-too much about exact miniature replication.

Heads:






Her non-wedding ring:



His wedding ring (tiger eye in real life) and jar of cider... probably cider in all the years I've known him he hasn't been a drinker, but maybe this was before he quit:



The base:



I finally found just the right piece to put in the center of the front of the base:

OMG-the hair and blood. So wrong, yet so right.

You know with our hair, it would take more than a spiky, iron ball to break the skin on our scalp.
