I made a shower costume for this Halloween!

http://jenna.gregorybrand.com/Shower1.JPG

The skirt is pleated, knee-length, and made out of a clear shower curtain with geometric dot detailing. I'm wearing blue leggings because, ya know, it's cold out, and the skirt is see-through.

The breast plate is made from a shower bottom no-skid pad. It ties together in the back. Don't worry, everything was bought new, so no skunky mildew issues.  I sewed it onto a blue tank top.  And I'm wearing a white long-sleeve shirt, because, again, it's cold out.

The blue wide belt is made from a disassembled loofah.  You can't see it in any of the pictures, but I had a loofah hair-scrunchie, too!

Inspired by Project Runway, of course!

Happy Halloween everyone!

That is great!

You should post pictures in the 2006 completed costume thread.

How did you go about making the skirt? Is the shower curtain sewn to a belt? If so, did you get that to go through your sewing machine?

Thanks for the comment!  The pics are up in the completed costume thread now!

To make the skirt, I folded the pleats in place, pinned it, and then just said "screw it" and tacked the tops of the pleats in place with hand stiching.  The great thing about the shower curtain material is that you can just crease the pleats from the waist tacked stiching, and the crease will hold the pleat in place.  Really not much sewing!  I was going to add an elastic waistband to the skirt, but found that it would stay up fine and be more comfortable if I just used snaps.  So the skirt is snapped together (just two at the waist) and then covered up some by my loofah belt!

Thanks again!

That is way clever!  Expertly done, too. Maybe you should carry a back scrubber thingy or a rubber ducky!  Do you have a fun party to go to, or is this for taking the kids trick-or-treating?

I feel that it needs a showerhead on it, I would get one of the hosetype ones and make a crown out of it if it were me, and maybe a shower caddy hanging off an arm.  But otherwise I love it!
