It is great to see everyone's awesome costumes this year! 

I have been thinking about making this costume for a few years now, this was the year. My guy and I are originally from Wisconsin, so Miller holds a special place in our hearts. We represented this year with the Miller High Life Girl on the Moon, High Life's logo for the past 100+ years. 

We didn't get a great picture of the two of us, but you can get the idea.  I'm the girl, he's the moon, so when we stood around together you get the whole sha-bang.
I made my whole costume: jacket, skirt, petticoat, corset thingy, hat embellishments,scarf and spray painted some thrifted boots.  I just made things up as I went along, no patterns.

I also made the moon and attached it to a shirt with some stars. My guy was a good sport. 

Here is a close up of the jacket detail (on my duct tape dummy), I sewed the embellishments on by hand.


This costume was so fun, both to make and wear.  It was a hit at the bar, and I am super happy with how it turned out. 

Thanks for looking!

It does not due to dwell on dreams and forget to craft.
