I would have posted this sooner but it was a totally last minute thing and the only pictures I got were taken on Halloween. I didn't make the dress. I just made the eyes and shell. The shell was super simple, just a long tube filled with stuffing (it took three 20oz bags!) and rolled up. I used ric rac for straps and that ended up being a horrible idea because the front of my shoulders are bruised from it now. The eyes are made from felt. I bought one of those headbands with springs with pom poms on the end, ripped off the pom poms and just made my eyes over the springs.

I love how it turned out! I think this is the first time I've made a costume that I was totally happy with! Smiley I wanted to wear some cute yellow heels but I spent the night walking around Hollywood so that would have been a horrible idea.

I find I relate more to Max & Ruby as I get older.

I really like the way the lights ripple through the metallic fabric. Very cute. Good job!

It really is very beautiful. I love the colors and the antenna/stalk things are a really great touch. Amazing.
