I'm gonna be Alice for halloween.

A slightly more to my tastes and slightly less innocent girl type alice.. but still alice Smiley

The earth, stained with the blood of a thousand dying soldiers, weeps as she welcomes them home.

I'm going as a fetus.

I'm Dorothy this year. I'm hoping to be able to take my 4 yr. old cousin trick or treating b/c she is being Dorothy as well.  Cheesy I posted it on here already but here is a quick picture:

Ha.  Someone else with the Absinthe Fairy idea. I suppose all I need it green fabric....and high heels. I've never used a pattern when making clothes for myself....so this will be no different. I can't wait to post pictures.

I was the green fairy from Moulin Rouge (A.K.A : Absinthe Fairy) one year (unfortunately, I don't have a digital pic I can download....or upload...whatever)  I took an old strapless chiffon prom dress and cut the skirt way short (and kind of jaggedy), then dyed the dress green. The dress had a weird, built in shawl thing so I cut it to make the drapey, asymmetrical look that Kylie Minogue had going on.  I wore skin colored fishnets and silver high heels to complete the look.....and of course, some green sparkly wings.

It was a very cost effective costume: The dress was only a $1, and the rit dye was probably $1.50 ....the shoes were probably the most expensive purchase at $12 on ebay (but I ended up wearing them in my wedding 2 years later, so it was a good investment.) 

So anyway, to those of you who had posted your wish to be the absinthe fairy....it CAN be done inexpensively!

Well, i don't know if i'll have an occassion to wear it yet, but since i'm pregnant I thought it would be funny to  make an oven out of a box, and cut it so that my belly is "in" the oven, with a picture of a sticky bun on it...get it, "bun in the oven"?    Cheesy or maybe it would require too much explaining...

That Dorothy dress is uber cute. My little sister went out as Dorothy for a friend's themed party, but she bought her costume and looked more like Slut-Dorothy. Ha.

I'm having a big Halloween party in my house, with a shadow machine and fog and OTT decor. I don't know what to go as yet; toying between a '40s pinup sailor, or Little Red Riding Hood, or a zombie nurse. Probably going for the sailor option, as it means I can wear it out to a local burlesque / rockabilly club night.

I'm trying to persuade my boyfriend to go as Teen Wolf but he's having none of it. I think the best I will get from him is a half-assed "zombie". BOYS WHO DRESS UP PROPERLY ARE BEST!

p.s Uncle Rico!!! <3 <3 <3

i've been debating with myself for months whether to be a pirate or a fairy...i've wanted to be a pirate forever and never gotten around to it, but i really want an excuse to make some fairy wings and stick flowers in my hair...i think i'll just make both and decide when the time comes.

there's plastic on the furniture to keep it neat and clean,
in the pine sol-scented air, somewhere that's green...
