Since I was 8.5 months pregnant at Halloween, i decided to dress as "late in life" Elvis.


The basis for my "jump suit" were some black yoga pants and a black maternity shirt.  I split the pants and added gold bell-bottom inserts and made the cape and collar and attached them to the shirt. With the help of some glittery puffy paint and rhinestones I was well on my way to being Elvis complete with an eagle on the back of my cape.


The wig was knitted by my good friend and fellow craftster LikeADiamond, using this pattern http://www.theshed.co.uk/elviswig.html#pattern


I made my belt buckle out of a cereal box, nylon rope, gold spray paint and broken jewelry.


I made the "taking care of business" necklace out of broken chains and old money clip.


It was a lot of fun, and SO comfortable - like wearing PJ's.
Thank you, thank you very much.

It's hard enough finding something to dress as when pregnant, but you made it look so easy! You almost don't even look preggers, and it's almost believable! I wish I had come up with something this creative when I was pregnant. Haha.
