Went to a costume party this weekend. I was Coraline and DH was Mr. T

Edited... I made my own wig, dyed a lab coat yellow, and even painted some black rubber boots yellow.

Here is DH, he is trying to look mean. I made his wig, feather earrings, and painted some MardiGras beads gold.

Here are a few of the partygoers, my friend was a one night stand.  I thought it was pretty cute.

Those are really great costumes! You obviously put a lot of work and care into them.  How did you make the Coraline wig, it's really good! Awesome costumes!  Smiley

  Cheesy Oooh what a great idea for a costume! I loved that movie and still haven't gotten around to reading the book (which I purchased ages ago at a used book store). You've given me inspiration for being something for halloween now.

Thanks! I made the Coraline wig by stitching lengths of blue yarn to bias tape. First where I wanted the part to be, and then I added two more strips of bias tape and sewed the undermost layer of that yarn down for more coverage. Last I made a piece for the back portion by sewing equal lengths once, thn folding them over and stitching them flat, and sewed the back part to the front/sides. In the end I stitched it all to a wig cap I got from Sally's Beauty.
DH's wig was short pieces stitched to bias tape, and combed with my cat's brush, then attached to some deconstructed pantyhose.
Caution BTW. It took way longer than 24 hours for the yellow paint on my boots to dry! They were still sticky at the party.
