Esmerelda from Hunchback of Notre Dame?

Lol. That is really all I got. Or you could just paint your face like they said -wink-

One of my favorite costumes I made was Ms. Galaxy!  I had a few variations for the three different parties I went to that week.  I bought a bunch of eyeballs and put them on glitter wire and stuck them all over in my hair...wore a tiara..had a wand...and made these great big eyeballs that were basically a bra..I used paper plates and silver rope and aluminum foil (lots of hot glue and some tape).  I found some random christmas sparkly floral arrangemnt stuff with silver balls all over that I twisted for "eyelashes".  I made a sash that said Ms. Galaxy and wore some strappy shoes and a short black sparkly dress with some shiny gloves.  I got a lot of attention for having these gigantic eye-boobs and it was a cute costume.  I just varied the dress...one time I wore a metalllic dress and another I was just an alien with no tiara..a ton of eyeballs in my hair and I wore dressy disco pants and a black tank.  Of course it could have been over the top cool with some type of pageant dress. 
Will try to attach a photo?!?  By the time of the night the photo was taken I had lost quite a few eyeballs...check out the evil knievel costume too..that was a cool one!

M'kay, so I've been a long time lurker on craftster so I know this is the place to go for stellar tips, pointers, and other sharp things.

I was inspired by a combo of my love of flight of the conchords as well as the movie "almost famous", and i've decided that for this halloween I want to be an air hostess in the 60s (or 70s. who's actually historically accurate on halloween, though?) la Zooey in "Almost Famous" :

Now the problem is I have the idea, but I'm not sure how to put it into practice. Help!

I wanted to go as Jessica Rabbit really really bad but I just don't feel like being that sexy this year. Maybe when I have some parties lined up to show off my handy work.

So instead I'm going with my runner up. Mrs. Jolly Green Giant!! I've never seen anyone do it so I'm kind of excited about the whole thing. I'm just not sure whether or not I want to put fake leaves on the dress or cut out leaves from felt/fabric. Opinions on which would be better?

For Mrs. Jolly Green Giant - when my friends were Adam & Eve they just stapled fake ivy leaves all over their undies.  Although I'd hot glue instead ("Adam" in particular really didn't enjoy the staples!), I think that'd be easier and look more "realistic".  Like a real jolly green giantess, rather than a fake one.

This year I really really realllllly want to go as Kat Von D. It's unique, not too slutty but still kinda hot at the same time. It requires me to make a gold lam bathing suit top (i think i may just buy a cheapo bra and cover it with gold fabric), a vest out of recycled denim (i have some stuff from my mom from the 80s). I have one problem though, how the heck am I going to cover my arms with tattoos that will stay on after a sweat-fest at the bar??? I know waterproof eyeliner can do the stars/lightning bolt on my face and the tats on my hands, but i still need an idea on how to do the arms and stomach tattoos.

Thoughts?


yopu can buy those sleeve tattoo nylon armwarmers - they are like pantyhose printed with tattoos on 'em.. and slide right on over your arms... Cool

funny enough, i bought some TLC Miami Ink endorsed tattoo sleeve things at Value Village today! I still have a big old gap between them and my vest since they only go up to my armpits, lol. but it's better than having to paint myself for suree.

You could also be a part time model... lol Love it! I would check out thrift stores for some 60s-style dresses that you could modify, and don't forget a pair of wings like these http://www.drexelantiques.com/after4750/4912deltawings.jpg!

i loveee all of the ideas on here... there are so many cool and original costumes

i want to be a shooting star this year... im thinking a large black tee-shirt or t-shirt dress with a large star on it and some sort of belt/holster with two squirt guns... and squrit/"shoot" people when they ask what i am... get it?

im surprised i havent seen any miley cyrus/hannah montana spoofs on here... that could be fun if you think of some creative way to execute it... other wise you might just look like a tween pop star

I LOVE the Hester Prynne idea! I just might have to do that!

My cousin and her friends are going as a dance recital troupe: pink leotards and tights, tutus, tap shoes, really bad hair, red lipstick and waaay too mauch blue eyeshadow. I thought that was a great idea.
