For Halloween, I was Marie Antoinette!

Found an old size 8 prom dress, took it in to a size 0, cut and hemmed it, added extra tulle in a bubble hem to add modernity and fullness, made and attached the ribbon/ rhinestone button detailing by, and added the Swarovski crystal beads around the top and in the bodice/ribbon detailing by hand.  Tiara and all extra jewelry was bought.
Hope you all like it!

NixArmegeddon, you win.  Yours is absolutely my favourite from this year so far.

themehpatrol, yours is a VERY close second.  It rocks.  It only loses points because you are a live Marie and not a post-mortem Marie Cheesy

Here is another one of myself, and the entire gang:



From left to right we have Yumiko from Battle Royale, Bam Bam Rubble, an 80's Homecoming Queen, and me the FairyGothMother.  Bam Bam's costume was made by a friend out of a thrift store dress, and you know about mine, but the other two are more assembled than crafted.  Still, Yumiko was fun to burn the bullet holes and spray the blood!

And here is our friend Remo, who MADE THIS HIMSELF.  He is wildly talented, as you can tell.  He's also a semi-professional dancer from Brazil, who has lots of experience making dance costumes, traditional and otherwise.

Here's my costume sans face because I was rocking a gnarly cold that had me better suited for zombie look. Anyway, here I am.

Yeah, normally I'm actually a fan of the whole blood look, but have you seen that dress?  I couldn't bear to risk getting blood on it.  I was terrified of getting it dirty as it was!  But thanks!

FIRE FIGHTER: I decided to not waste my time looking like everyone else, so i decided to make my own Fire fighter costume. I chose fire fighter because i was given the nick name "fire" with my cousins and boyfriend. [long story] so here it is. i think the only thing that really made the costume was the hat.

I bought the jacket at ross in the boys' section, I bought yellow "duck tape," and the hat at party city. I had everything else. My boyfriend is a butcher on the left and i'm dressed in my costume on the right.

Here is my costume. I got started very very late and couldn't think of an idea so I borowed one I had used a few years ago. "Winter". It is a gerat last-minute costume since the stores have all the Christmas stuff out already. The only thing not pictures is two light up icicles that I put in my hair when I got to the club I went to and that since there was a bit of a chill I wore a caplet that craftykate knitted for me. Which was really neat because it caused someone there to ask if I had knit it which led to Craftster and finding that the person is also a member  Grin. Woo hoo!!



Cuffs & necklace: crochet with leftover white chenille yarn that a friend gave me. glittery riboon from the stash used to tie it on. snowflake from 6-pack at $1 store
Dress: step one - find large enough fabric from stash. Step two - guess how much is needed to go around body. Step three - serge into a tube. Step four - wiggle said tub onto body. Step five - have husband cut hem end of dress and help tuck top into bra  Cheesy
Belt - ribbon from stash with snowflakes and icicles from $1 store
Snowball - stuffed crochet ball with loop for holding
Wand- wired together icicle and snowflake

I can't say i blame you one bit.  The craftsmanship is incredible!
