I know, I know, it is July. But I have crafted my Halloween costumes for the last few years, and never gotten around to putting them up. So here they are, all at once, oldest first.

Four years ago, I was Little Miss Muffet. Sort of. It was college, so I was actually Little Miss Slutty Muffet.
Along came this spider and sat down beside me:

It is half a foam ball with googly eyes and pipe-cleaner legs, sewed onto my skirt!

The skirt had a tutu, which you can sort of see here:

The picture, btw, is a candid moment in which my heel got stuck in a vent. My "Housewife" roomie and "Nun" best friend were there to help. They were sooo helpful.

And the top was a corset thingy from Hot Topic, but I made and sewed on lace sleeves with a little bow, which you can see here:

I'm not sure what my friend in this picture was supposed to be. Probably drunk mostly.

A few years later, I was a peacock pirate (what do pirates have to do with peacocks? Who cares?!). This is sort of what it looked like, tho this photo was taken later b/c none were taken that Halloween:


My pirate hat, which is 100% decorated by me:


Pirate cuffs, sewn by me out of faux leather and some pretty lace, arrrg:


My pirate spats, sewn by me out of faux leather:


My pirate sword, which was bought plain then bedecked with sea-shell dangly thing, a faux leather grip, and gems:


And my favorite part, the eyepatch:


By the way, I think the reason pirates are so angry is because with a patch, no matter how sweet it is, they have bad depth perception. ARRRRGH!


And finally, last year, I went as Tony Romo, along with my friend who was Jessica Simpson. Our shirts were bought as basic white jerseys, then we ironed on the numbers and stripes:


Oddly, I bought the metallic leggings at a really fashionable store. The clerks said they were a hot item, and I was like, "Umm, I'm going to be a football player." Then I sewed blue and white ribbons down the sides, which you can see if you aren't too distracted by Jessica's huge boobs (we stuffed that bra to the max!):


And, because I was a female Tony Romo with lipgloss and that sort of thing to carry around, I made a football purse:


I even installed a zipper:


Okay kids, thanks for looking! It probably wasn't as fun for you as it was for me, but at least it was fun for somebody! Smiley

Ha!  A football purse! That is awesome.  Cheesy  I hope you use that more than just Halloween.

And I love the peacock pirate.  Especially the eyepatch.
