Pan's Labyrinth is my all-time favorite movie, plus people tell me I look like Ofelia all the time, so I figured, why not be Ofelia for Halloween? My school has a senior mixer that everyone wears a costume for tonight, so I'm wearing it for that too.

Hopefully the pictures work, I always have a hard time posting images.





  (I drew on the moon birthmark and everything!)

 



I made pretty much everything myself (excepting the shoes and socks, of course).  I have yet to learn how to use a pattern, so it was pretty much trial and error, particularly with the dress.  The apron was much simpler, but I'm still not quite satisfied with the way it came out.  The key is made out of a cut apart paper towel roll, the ends of plastic spoons, alot of tape, and gold spray paint.  The bow is my favorite part  Wink

Comments/criticism definitely appreciated!  Smiley

quillian91, you should definitely post it when you're done!  Hopefully you'll do a better job with the collar than I did, ha.  It's kind of a faux-peter pan collar because I didn't know how to make a real one.

and aliceownsj00, you should definitelyy watch it, it's the best.
