During our visit to the halloween costume store (to get ideas, not to buy Wink)  one of the nieces decided on this $60 twister costume:



I said "uh no sweetie, we are making this one" 

I already had all the supplies (because i grab every twister game i can get my hands on at yard sales)  so heres what we came up with:




The back has a velcro closure that i forgot to take a picture of


we decided to make a purse out of the spinner instead of putting it on her head



I made her clip on earrings (her ears aren't pierced) out of polymer clay.  i think they really tie the whole costume together


and just to add a little more funkiness to the costume this will be her hairstyle of choice:

we put a coke can in the middle of her ponytail to make it stand up Cheesy

The other niece wants to be a sexy nurse for halloween (she's 16 Cheesy)  so we're making her costume next weekend...

anywho... thanks for looking

that's cute.. you should get some spray-in hair color and make dots in her hair.. unless you think that would be too much.

A sexy nurse? Kids my age are lacking orignality XD But I'm sure it'll be pretty interesting and fun to make none-the-less XD

But I love this! Cheesy (and I never realized how long twister mats were =O )

The spinner on your head is pretty interesting, but the bag seems a lot more... purposeful? XD Good job!  Grin

I know, for most people that basically ends up being what halloween's about! You should see some of the halloween dances *shutters* I never knew 'Super Man' showed so much skin! Nor that he was female!

Though I admit that I'm going as Lust (one of the 7 deadly sins of course) it's not nearly as revealing as the title suggests.

Ahha, I'm agreed XD Better keep daddy happy!

And it appears kids my age are also lacking the ability to spell properly - oops!

Gestalta_Sara, here are some more pics of the purse:




i used adhesive velcro for the closure,  but you may want to come up with some better straps.  we did learn that they break if you put too much weight in the purse.  but since its just a costume we didnt try and make it useable. 

i basically cut the board in half horizontally and used the top half for the front and the bottom half for the back of the purse.  sorry i didnt manage to get detailed pics of the back and inside before she took it home with her, but its all white duct tape.
