So here's my Little Red Riding hood costume! I made it a bit edgier than regular, (with skulls and black), but I'm not ACTUALLY dead.

It's the first time I've actually MADE most of the pieces for my costume (I usually just "put together" thrifted pieces... I never buy costumes though!)

Here's a shot: I made the skirt (with skull stencil), and the hood/cape, and the skull lid of the basket. The corset top is just a top I had, there's a little black petticoat under the skirt that I didn't make, and I'm wearing pitchfork earrings from the Shop the Swap (mandajane's handiwork)


The full deal with boots and all in view.


The skull stencil:


The basket lid (I'm unreasonably proud of this very simple and quick craft, only because I've never done anything like this before!)


And my obligatory "grr" shot. Shows off my makeup (a bit) and pitchfork earrings though!


Let me know what you think Smiley
(PS: I don't know why my camera insists on thinking that its the wrong date! Must fix that now!)

how did you make the basket lid? my kids use baskets for their school lunches and i think your hinged lid would solve a ton of spills onto the street. Smiley

Ooh. Nice and easy! I just used thin cardboard cut to size(I have a stash of it, but I know that this piece actually came from the back of a big pad of paper), then I hole-punched it, used some good glue to glue fabric on, then opened up where the holes should be in the fabric with an x-acto. Ribbon through the holes, and it's done!

I too am being red riding hood this year and i covet that basket of yours.  Nicely done and I like how sassy the whole thing is.
