My costume this year was inspired by this post, which is so amazing!  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=357281.0

I've never made clothing before, except for aprons.  I made my own pattern for the bolero and I used a tutorial for the circle skirt.  Everything else I just kinda made up as I went!  I originally had plans to make a corset but that didn't pan out too well.  So please note that part is NOT made by me!





The hat:


I lined it:


Capelet/bolero/shrug:


Lace back:


The collar: (I ended up adding another layer of lace to this - no pic)


Puffy sleeves!


Lace "glovelets" ... these took sooo long!


My cigarette box, the lining is leopard although you can't see that Sad Difficult to see the fringe at the bottom also


Bitch fabric (Pleather?) I made the skirt out of:


Trim on the skirt ... 5 yards of it!


Obligatory twirl shot!


Happy Halloween!


There were so many incredible entries this year! SOOOO many! So much talent!

Yout skirt is amazing. I love your whole outfit! I see you made a body form, what kind of tape did you use? Would you recomend it over duct tape?

Thanks guys!

Say you love me: I made the dressform using this tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=275007.0  I wouldn't recommend using duct tape because when you put pins into it, they'll get all sticky.  This tutorial uses paper packaging tape which dries hard and doesn't leave a sticky residue.  Win-win!
