Before Halloween I was approached by the nicest person I have met for sewing commissions!  She is in a band and they wanted to be "Legends" for halloween.  This means they would all dress up as rock'n'roll legends.  She wanted to be Freddy Mercury and sent me photo after photo!  It was clear she wanted something pretty precise, but I am always up to the challenge!

Here are some pics which she sent and is allowing me to keep & use! (yey! Thanks!)

I altered an existing jacket and pants, added all the trim and buckles and etc.  I even made the bias tape and the belt!

He smells good, he really does! He smells like root beer.

Great work!  Freddy is a great costume idea, esp for a woman in drag and there's no mistaking who she is.
