greetings all you beautiful craftsters out there!
RHAAAR!


i hadn't dressed up for halloween in some time.....but when i heard about one of my favorite bands (shout out to all you panic fans!) was going to be playing in New Orleans, LA I knew i had to create my own costume

so i set out to the thrift store looking for inspiration......
i found a great flowly skirt & t shirt set....it still had the tags attached (score!) it was only $8.00 for the set. The cashier said it was a shame I was going to harvest this "beautiful" outfit for fabric.   Cheesy   Little did she know I was about to give the hideous cheeta print a better life.  Wink



check the lovely sash out that went through the belt loops of the skirt  Smiley


with a cut, cut here and a stitch, stitch there........

the basic construction entailed pants & a tube top connected at the hip.

THe tube top part was salvaged from the T-shir....Ii created a casing above the bust for some no roll elastic....

The skirt was used to create the pants all around  the hips to create a bubble-hem-ish draping in the front I did about 6 rows of smocking/shirring.

I resued the patch style pocket from the shirt & attatched to the pants.

I even resued the shoulder pads! I simply safety pinned either pad to a deadlock on either side of my head for my ears

My tail consisted of the elastic waistband fron the skirt. It was light weight & moved easily.

My arm warmers were created from the necklines of the front & back portion of the T shirt.....It worked out well because the neckline of the T had ribbed binding....

its kinda hard to see the smocking, but its there






here I am doing some warm up dance moves before the concert in my hotel room

i was super pleased with the overall outfit. Plus it was SUPER comfortable & easy to dance in.

Thanks guys, I love you all!

Great costume! 

Well done at finding that much leopard print fabric.  That's an awesome reconstruction!

I like it a lot
