Did you use a pattern for the dress? If so, can we know which?

Ashleyjustine, everyone loved his costume!!  He's 6'2" so he really stood out.  And he stayed in character the whole night, talking like those old ladies on Monty Python!  It was grand... Grin  He wore my mom's dress and my grandma's sweater and purse.

Thanks for the tips, ratface!  I'll have to try olive oil next time...

mikehunt, I made up my own pattern.  Didn't think I'd be able to find exactly what I was looking for.  And I was on an intensely tight budget, everything I used was already in my uber messy stash.

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

What gauge wire is this?

=D I am *not* about to rip off your costume (yes I am)

Well, I shouldn't, considering how long it took me to come up with my deer idea...

but i will.

Huzzahhh, mento bug!!  Thanks for the uber fab idea!  I was struggling with three different costume ideas and this one seemed the most do-able in the short amount of time I left for myself.  I wish I could've used burlap like you did, I thought that was one of the best parts, but I didn't have any and, frankly, I hate lining dresses!  heehee...So thank you for your inspiration!!

And about wearing the same costume in different years, I made a bjork swan dress costume three years ago, and I've managed to wear it at least once these last three years!  This year I wore it to my fave karaoke night at my fave bar, the Ravari Room, and I sang the only bjork song they have on the list.  It was so much fun!

(shameless costume show-off)




Kingfrancebald, I used wire hangers so I have no idea what gauge the wire is...very stiff though, which was best I feel, so the wire doesn't sag as you walk around.  I wanna see your deer costume!!
