i was she-ra a few years ago (although, not quite as busty  Wink ) and i made my crown from thin craft foam. it took the gold paint well, had no trouble holding the gem i glued to it, or the staples i used to connect it. it stayed together all night and in fact, is still intact.
best of luck with your costume - it's a fun one!

Since I'm making my costume anyway (as always), I might as well enter it.  Smiley
It's nothing too fancy, but it fits the theme of the evening  Cool - I'm going to a concert at a club on Halloween, and the band always packs the place, and I usually get drinks spilled on me.  Undecided Not ruining another awesome costume this year...I've had 2 (almost 3!) costumes ruined by beer spills or cigarette burns.

I can't wait to see everyone else's costumes! I love Halloween!  Cheesy
This should be a yearly challenge, I agree. Halloween is almost a ritualistic offering to the gods of craftiness and creativity Cheesy

I've never entered a challenge before and I have a question.  To be able to enter a costume, I can't post it anywhere else on the site until the contest is over?  I just finished my daughter's costume and am anxious to show it off Cheesy

I was wondering this too. I was leaning towards it being against the rules because everyone should have the same time to "market" their costume for votes, right? The longer it's up, the more views it has and the more likely it would gather more votes.

But really, I haven't a clue... was just my own ponderings. I had posted 1 small bit of my costume that won't actually even be seen in the final get-up (underthings if you will) before I found out about the contest but haven't posted anything since just in case.

I would love to enter my costume for fun but Im not sure if I "handmade" enough, someone help me out in deciding

I bought a track suit, painted logos on it, and made the mask out of recycled items and painted (not complicated) and found the accessories around the house

what do you think? I think I should enter it for a laugh, I know I wont win especially seeing the other costume contest but I think these contests are fun!
