Halloween is my favorite holiday so when we planned a trip to Disney World I had to go to the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.  I decided I wanted to be Helena from the My Chemical Romance music video.  Looked at lots of pattens then remembered I really do not like sewing...I love making things and getting them ready but the actual act of sewing drives me crazy.  So I decided to redo a dress I already had and recruit my mom.

Here are some reference pics from the video

With minor alterations my version of the Helena dress was born.

And some action shots...


We had a great time at the party, where else could I go trick or treating and get no funny looks...and a few people even knew who I was.

Oh and by the way my aunt (the hippie) made her and her son's costumes.   She made the Capt. Jack wig herself out of yarn.  It was so cute little kids thought he was really Jack.
