First off I'd just like to say that everyone did a wonderful job on their costumes this year and I'm really excited to be posting my first costume on Craftster tonight.

I am cupcake obsessed and so my costume this year is a Cupcake Maven in honor of my favorite cutesy treats. Please keep in mind that this entire thing came together in the two and a half days leading up to and including Halloween.

Miss Pixi, the Cupcake Maven:


Here is almost the whole costume:


Here is the 30 minute apron that I didn't have time to measure out and just eye-balled about halfway done in this pic.


This is a lingerie top I had lying around. I added some cupcake flourishes.


A close-up


I re-purposed an old necklace by attatching a felt cupcake I made to it.


The back



I have more to post but want to get this up first in case my pc freezes again.

Yay my pc works today! lol

Here is the fun way I made the lil cupcake on top of my headband:
I needed some fluff to put in my real mini cupcake foil but was all out so...I used something I had onhand. (It's brand new fresh outta the wrapper)


I put a bit of water on it to puff it up more and then poked a hole in the end and pulled pull string through to make a poof.

Then I glued it into the foil and glued pink fabric on top of it.


For sprinkles, I used a bit of aquarium gravel I had.


Lastly, I found some cupcake DOG toys which were perfect for a light weight cupcake platter, easy to carry around all night. I used some cake plates, glued together with sparkly foam glued to the center and then hot-glued an elastic strap underneath for ever easier transport. I glued the squeek toys to it and voila.
     

Then it was off for a night of drinks and fun and cupcakes!


  ~Thanks for looking   Kiss
