well i scrapped the white witch and finished up the spun wool dread wig i added dried crawfish, HUGE catfish skull and misc tail bones, chicken bone, misc computer and phone wires, human hair (from a wig), beer bottle cap, skull bone beads, artificial flowers, clam shells, costume jewelry basically just like my monster vomit scarves.
went to the costume contest last night as Jane Sparrow (Jack Sparrows long lost insane sister) was in the top 15 out of 417 woohoo) painted my face up with el cheap white costume make up in a tube and powdered my skin with cocoa powder Smiley not sure if the wig counts as a sew along but oh my goodness it was a whole lot of threading through the cap.  heavy? indeed it was dangerous too i truly feel for the other dancers i whiplashed with the catfish skull Smiley

*o* <---reserving a spot for my completely homemade (no patterns even!!) double group costumes (+plus one lonely old man)

loving the scrapbook so far...

all my pics will come after halloween, but i will post them here...

its Lily Moon's very first Halloween, and she is gonna be SUPER SCHWEET...hehe

here are two in progress pix from tonight, i took them for a friend who wanted to see what i was up too...there are basically the same, but you can see the skirt (no pattern, made of gold brocade) and the shirt (no pattern again, made of fleece) and i didnt even measure to make em...lol...i just started cutting...cos i am just that kinda crafter....hack away and hope it works....

10 pts for anyone who can guess what i am going as...

you will be able to tell when i have my makeup and such on...

here are my contributions for the scrapbook (later on im gonna make a thread dedicated to the whole thing, cos im super proud of what me and my sister made)

Princess Peach, Mario, and Toad (the inspiration for the group, it was her very first EVER halloween, and she loved it!)

this one, i only made the Cowardly Lion costume, but the whole reason i dressed up was because my best friend (dorothy) wanted me to...i made it in literally 2 days

and here my brothers costume, it was made quickly, and he ended up not even going out, which really bummed me out, but he was supposed to be the Emerald City

halloween was super awesome, we went trick-or-treating and had a blast (made a new friend) and Lily got LOADS of candy... Grin

I know, but I feel like I would be cheating because I read it elsewhere. Cheesy

Can't wait to see your makeup & such.

Do more of what makes you happy.

I am going as a Pacific Northwest Native American this year and my husband is going as a Mayan (he made his own costume, too, but he's not finished with it yet!). Here's mine!
I made it loosely based off a sloper. sleeves, bottom, neckline, and back are my own design.
The dress is made of microfiber suedecloth, vintage leather pieces, fringe, a decorative trim belt, strips of vintage raccoon fur, and some leather horses my mother cut out as appliques.
The moccasins I did not make, luckily. They are gorgeous and are/were my mother's.
Headband is made of two strips of rawhide, vintage raccoon fur, and red/white plumes.
Earrings are handmade feather ones (like the ones I sell).
The collar was a complete bitch to make. All the strands are glass beads (hand-beaded) on leather with fur, fringe, and pheasant feathers.
I also made a bow and arrow (out of dowels, feathers, bone, rawhide, and waxed linen) and a shawl (blizzard fleece with a decorative trim) - shawl is in chair. I still may do beads around the top of the collar. I'm not sure yet.
It isn't perfect, but over all I am pleased with it. It is the first costume I have ever made and the first time I have dressed up (in an actual costume and not weird stuff like I always wear) since I was little.
Sorry I don't have a photo of the back yet. If I get to it tonight, I'll post one up.
Everyone's costumes look so good! I am so jealous! You gals (and guys) are so talented!



<3 + crinoline, xoxo

I'm going as  buttered toast. Carbs are super evil to me so my costume is a scary one this year.


I went to visit some of the girls at work :o)
