Emily Strange sells something just like this for about $40, but I made mine out of an old hoodie and $3 worth of red fleece.

I had work and a night class, so I didn't want to go all out with a costume.  Plus, it's something I can wear anytime.

That is one kickass costume - where'd you get the boots? Or did you make them?

I applied about 15 coats of paint to a pair of $6 thrift store boots! I was pretty pleased with the way they turned out.

This is probably my best Halloween costume.  The makeup is just regular makeup (didn't show up completely in pictures), the shirt was made by my husband with watered down brown and black paint and some fake blood.

Here's a closeup of some of the makeup.

Here's my husband, he was, uh...just a gory person.  He made the shirt himself (brown and black paint and fake blood mixed with vegetable oil).  Someone online made the mask, but at least it's not mass-produced.  (It's the guy from Banjo and Sullivan who's face got cut off in The Devil's Rejects).

This is his other one.   Another non-mass produced mask from someone online, but we did have to buy the robe last minute because it was two days before Halloween, and since I've never sewn anything in my life just yet (keep meaning to learn!) I didn't want to try to make it myself.

We spent the day at my parent's house since we don't get any trick or treaters at all.  My husband scared a little girl (didn't even have the mask on), when he opened the door she said "Trick....orr........." and just froze.  Poor thing. Wink   

Then we went to a free show of a Misfits cover band that was crap.  Nobody even dressed up. Boring.

So, I made Spongebob Squarepants and Patrick Star for my two sons.  Honestly I'm pretty proud of them.  I think they look awesome.  I was really impressed with how well they turned out.  Sound, conceited don't I?  Smiley   Oh well!  I know what me likes and me likes what I made!

I didn't end up having enough time to finish my costume so I put my hair into a birdnest of sorts on top of my head and put a couple of stuffed birds up there.  I guess I was the crazy lady with birds in her hair.
