I've never entered one of these before and there are some great entries, but I am super proud of how my costume turned out so I'm showing it off.
I have a sort of complicated camera and my friend had a little trouble with the focus, but you can get the general idea.
Here's Little Dead Riding Hood off to the cemetery to see Grandma.
But look! Here's a friendly woodsman. He seems so nice.
Oh NOOOOOOOO! He's not so nice after all, but he sure looks like he's having a good time.
I made everything I am wearing, except the shirt. I wish I had better pictures of the hatchet. I bought them at the dollar store, then cut one of the blades off just before the handle. I then hot glued it to the front of the shirt. The petticoat is made from 3 massive layers of tulle and 2 layers of cut and dyed cotton. The over skirt fabric came from Joann's just like that. I actually squealed in the store when I found it! The hood is made from the same material with this awesome skull cut velvet for the cape part. I think the makeup was the most fun to do! My husband was a good sport for dressing up so I kept his simple. I stained the shirts and then pored blood on the tee shirt. He already had the loverly ripped jeans.
It took quite a while to make, but the parts can also be used for other costumes later. Hope you guys like it!
