4  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Anubis, Isis, Pharaoh & Bastet - Egyptian gods/goddesses on: November 01, 2014 10:40:56 AM

So - I convinced my husband that I wanted to do Egyptian gods/goddesses for Halloween. TWO WEEKS BEFORE. I'm batsh*tcrazy. Didn't have any patterns - so I had to make my own. Did I mention that I'm not that accomplished as an sewer?? Or a sculpter?? But I did it anyways  Shocked  
First off (for Anubis) - I purchased a make your own mask from recycled cardboard printout from https://www.etsy.com/listing/164933131/aminal-mask-make-your-own-dog-mask-from?ref=shop_home_active_9. Thankfully, it was stupid proof.  After I put it together, I covered it with a layer of paper pulp. After that, I covered with a very small layer of paper clay (DAS) - sanded that and painted with spray paint. After the black was dry, I put on details with a gold Sharpie, and then covered with gold acrylic. Lastly - a layer of clear protectant and then hot glued on a liquid gold headcovering.  Bastet mask was a half mask purchased online, which I painted the same way as Anubis and attached the liquid gold headcovering the same as well.  Three of the collars were handmade by me - made by making a pattern with an embroidery hoop and a lampshade (I couldn't find anything else circular in our house!!!). BTW - liquid gold fabric is EVIL. Seriously. The skirts I made the boys hold them as I cut around and made my pattern from fabric (yay draping!!). The dresses for the kids were taken off of dresses my daughter had in her closet. Which I made a pattern from by laying them flat and tracing around them. The belts were freeform drawn on paper. Belts and collars have a variety of metallic ribbon & ric rac sewn, as well as gold lame seam binding. I didn't make the pharaoh's headdress (but I sewed on the blue part and fixed the shoddy construction of it) or the collar for Anubis, and my dress (Bastet) was a vintage dress in my closet - but everything else was made - by me! I'm super proud of it, especially since I've never done anything like this before! Yay!!  Grin
Hope y'all enjoy it!
