So, my step-sister is going to be a Budweiser beer can for Halloween. I haven't seen the completed costume (which is why this isn't on the costume board), but she asked me to make the top. She plans to wear the top by itself after Halloween too.

She found an old childrens (!!!) bed sheet with Budweiser all over it, so I cut a bunch of them out, and appliqued them onto a top that she bought. It took a lot longer than I expected, and didn't turn out exactly how I wanted, but I think it's what she wanted, so I guess that's what matters!! She arranged them and pinned them on the top, all I did was sew!

So, onto the pictures!

She's going to wear silver leggings, silver boots, and some sort of silver cardboard thing on her head! I think it's going to be pretty cool!

I'm addicted!

haha awesome.  our beer of choice in our house is Budweiser, and my husband can recite the whole budweiser banner by heart.

We live really close to the worlds largest budweiser beer can, it's an old grain silo painted to look just like the bud can.

In fact, one of the reasons wh my husband followed me around so much when we were first dating was becuas we drank the same beer, smoked the same cigarettes, and loved the same kind of liqour.
I like this costume, and I really wish I had those sheets.

If I could buy the world a coke, then I would say "SCREW YOU WORLD" and go buy more fabric.

I don't even drink Budweiser and I would wear this... This is so cute... great job!

That's such a fun creative idea! I love homemade costumes that are better than something you can buy from a store, and this I'm sure is one of those!!! You're a a great sister to help out!
