Here's the original:


And here's me:


My boyfriend went as Toad:


The heads are made of paper mache (made from putting two mixing bowls together as a mold) that I covered in cotton batting.  Then I glued circles I cut out of jogging material on.  I tried to use pink material with white circles but it just looked horrible.  I used pink yarn to create braided hair and painted styrofoam balls for the end of the hair.  My dress and vest are made out of jogging material that was laying around with white and yellow trim.  I used a dress I already have for a pattern.  The bloomers were made from a Raggedy Anne and Andy costume pattern I had and just altered a bit.  I found the pink shoes at Walmart.

SO awesome. i went as link (from zelda), but i didn't get ANY pics of my costume, which i whipped up in like 2 hours on friday night.

complete with potions (made of green/red/blue lite brite pieces in sammich bags), cardboard/tin foil hero's sword, cardboard/felt hyrule shield, belt pouch (my apron from when i worked at a coffee shop, but all folded up)..

too bad everyone thought i was a hobbit..
