I started with this on august (yeah, I'm obsessed with halloween)
I first made the skirt out of an old _*I dont know how to say it in english. it's white, and like an extra-long white shirt you wear on top of you clothes in chemistry*_ + scraps of fabric, and dyed it with tea and other..substances (aka coffee, ink, etc. . .)


Then I started working on my bf's costume (which is a pirate one, too. I'll post some pics of him in it when I get them).
I grabbed some old pants he had, ripped and stained them. I also cut them so that they are knee-length now. I grabbed an old shirt and ripped the neckline, bottom and cuffs. I stained it too.

I bought a floor-length fake leather jacket for 6 bucks, and used that to make a corset (I made the pattern, too). Oh.. and my bf bought some second hand boots for 4 bucks.

 

 

Crappy pic of the back of the corset



Now I'm making a pirate hat, using last year Threadbanger's Halloweeny Wednesdays' Pirate Costume tutorial ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvopk72Bx3Y )
+ an eyepatch + MAYBE a tiny pirate hat for me


Oh, and I had most of the acsesories (belts, necklaces, pearls, amulets...) You'll see them afterwards. The only thing we bought was my red sash thingy (6 bucks) and a brown/orange-y one for him).


I'll post more pics as soon as I take them...!

it's called a lab coat, and it's the best use of one ever. i love it- i love your details- the cross-stitching at the neckline, and the different colored stockings... wonderful corset, with no puckering! impressive... jealousy...  Shocked
