So, as you can see, this years Halloween costume was a clown Smiley!
I decided to be a clown when the idea for the wig struck, out of the blue. That was my inspiration piece for this entire outfit.



I made the wig using a red pigtail wig as the base, then I took a rainbow afro wig, cut it in half, glued it onto two styrofoam balls and pinned it into the wig using bobby pins. I absolutely love it. Smiley!
The wig didn't really fit me (I have a big head -_-!) So, I made a bandana type headband thing to cover up in the back, and put a bow on the front to make it cute Smiley!



I loosely followed a costume pattern. I made the base dress in white with red ruffles and waist ties, then hand stitched polka dots in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. I chose to handstitch because I love how it looks. It took forever, but I think its a great detail.


I went to a halloween party on Saturday, this is me  (and my friend, as Alice) all made up. Smiley! (No white face, because my cheapo makeup wouldn't cooperate.)




I also helped a friend with her costume. She was Hit Girl from Kickass. I made this belt, a simple cape and a mask. (only have pictures of the belt, I forgot the cape. Oops.)


And yes Smiley!
