Hello there! This year, I decided to go as The Pale Man from the movie Pan's Labyrinth. It was a really hard costume to make, I'll tell you. For each costume I make, I try to challenge myself a bit more, and this was certainly a challenge!

I made it out of skin-tone swimsuit fabric, hot glue, and some of those little plastic blobs that you use in the feet of dolls to make them stand up. I put those in the skin-flabs to make them swing and look weighed down a bit.

I painted the gloves and eyes, and the nostrils, and hand-sewed a lot of the wrinkles on the legs and torso. It was really hard to see (I had to look out the nostrils), but the costume was really comfy!

I went to visit my best friend at school and she has Film-Class first period (the teacher loves me, so I can just sit in the class whenever I want to). Well, we have a sort of school news program that plays every second period on TV to he entire school where they read the announcements and such. My best friend was Anchoring that day, and no one wanted to Co-Anchor.... sooo....

Pale Man: the Co-Anchor!

I got to read the daily announcements in my costume! It was great fun, especially as the whole school got to see it. The teacher was told it was the best show the school had in the last few years! Talk about a compliment!

After first period, I took a bus downtown and went to see a movie. I do online school, so I had all day to walk around and freak people out. Great fun!

Anyways, tell me what you think!

That's fantastic!! It's a brilliant idea and equally brilliant execution! Did you have to explain it a lot, or had many people seen Pan's Labyrinth?

I had to explain it a bit, but some people got it right off the bat!
