11  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Ruby Rohd and Darkwing Duck on: September 24, 2007 08:10:51 PM
So this year for Halloween I plan on being Ruby Rohd from the Fifth Element. You know, the guy Chris Tucker plays? I want to do the leopard suit version(http://img234.imageshack.us/img234/9121/lecinquimelmentruby2ro.jpg).

I bought a 1xl sized leopard print long sleeved dress from Goodwill, and I plan on turning it into a jumpsuit. The dress buttons down the front and has more than enough fabric to play with.

I want people to be able to recognize me, unlike my costume from my Superhero Birthday Party when I was Darkwing Duck. Everyone thought I was Carmen Sandiego because I ran out of time to make a beak. Oh well...

Does anyone have any suggestions about how to make the dress into a one piece pants suit? Or ideas on how to make the wig? Right now I am thinking of taking a blond hairnet and weaving yarn through it and then sewing a toilet paper tube covered in yarn on the front. It might work... I hope.

So this isn't all text (sorry I couldn't post the actual pictures, I havn't posted 10 times yet..):
Me as Darkwing Duck

and me again as Darkwing and my boyfriend as Artie the Strongest Man in the World (From Pete and Pete...)

So for this Halloween I am going to be Ruby Rohd from the Fifth Element. Something about getting to bzzzz people all night seems like fun.

I'm trying to make the leopard print outfit (http://img234.imageshack.us/img234/9121/lecinquimelmentruby2ro.jpg), but I am having a little trouble.

I was going to just buy fabric and sew a jumpsuit using a pattern, but the only leopard fabric I could find was over $12 a yard. So I went to Goodwill and bought a velvet leopard print 1xl size dress. It's more like a long sleeved coat with buttons down the front then a dress. Any ideas on how to make a housecoat into a pants jumpsuit? I am having trouble wrapping my mind around the pants part.
