oh my goodbye
« on: November 01, 2008 02:40:42 PM »

so i wasn't even planning on doing anything for halloween, but my friend convinced me, so i made a squid costume! i think it turned out pretty good considering the fabric i ordered didn't come on time so i had to dye it with kool-aid!

all laid out


i'm really proud of the tentacles...


they were over 3 feet long so i added buttons so i could make them smaller


and action shot! see those wiggling tentacles?!

i added elastic to the tentacles so they would stay on my arms, and i put cardboard pieces in the head part so that it wouldn't be floppy. there's also white felt dots added to every tentacle on the skirt. and i wore black leggings to look like ink  Wink
i hope you all enjoy my costume and have a great halloween!
