I got so excited in January deciding what I wanted to be this Halloween. Since then, I decided Dr. Girlfriend and never looked back. Despite my chunkiness it turned out very well.

I Hand drafted a pattern based off a Jackie O suit, and added a bit of that mad scientist side button quality. The fabric had to be dyed since I could not find the appropriate color from the palate I had chosen. The hat, I made with the help of a thread bangers Tute video. The fabric is lined with a thicker one on the inside to give the hat some stability.

My boyfriend or best friend is going to be the monarch, but I haven't decided which. I have to get started on that one soon. Um, I'll put more pictures up when everything is finished.

Thanks for looking.

You've inspired me to make my own!  I can't wait to go to the store and buy a bunch of silly pink fabric and big black buttons.  Thanks for giving me my halloween costume idea.

I love it!  I have been wanting to make the same costume - care to tell us more about how you made it? I have found it nigh impossible to find an appropriate pattern, but haven't yet worked up to drafting my own, so I'm always looking for advice!

I LOVE Venture Bros! My DH keeps asking me to be Dr. Girlfriend to his Monarch. Seeing you and your fabulousness, I think I may finally take him up on it!  Cheesy

Great job!
