1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Batman, Joker & Harley Quinn on: November 06, 2011 07:53:44 PM

This year my bf was quite insistent on us going as Joker & Harley Quinn. 

His Joker costume was easy - we put it together with clothes from Value Village.  All I had to do was add the slots & elastic loops for his prop knives up the inside of his jacket.

Molly the bunny wanted to be Batman so I made her cape and stenciled the Batman logo on it.

My Harley Quinn costume was the most work.  I managed to find a red top and leggings that matched so I cut both in half and dyed them black.  Unfortunately the dye didn't take well enough so I went over it with spray paint.  Then I sewed the pieces back together, altered the neckline and stenciled the diamonds.  I also made the hat & ruffles from scratch and made Harley's cork gun from a wine bottle cork and toy plastic gun.

I didn't want to wear a mask so I opted for make-up.  Loved the way my bf's Joker make-up turned out!

2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Shredder & Raphael on: November 05, 2010 09:27:21 PM
My bf & I both adore Halloween.  This was our second Halloween together and also the second time I've made our costumes.  Last year we went as the Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter.  This year I got it in my head that I wanted to be a Ninja Turtle so I convinced him that I could pull off a rad Shredder.

Unfortunately I had such an insane week at work that I was working on our costumes right up until the last minute which meant I didn't get great pictures of our whole costume. 

I forgot to put on my shell in this picture! :/

Another angle.

Close up of my stomach.  I stenciled the gold six pack onto a green shirt I picked up cheap.  The buckle was made with paper mache.  Mask and red bands were made from scratch.  I loved the way the mask turned out!

The shell was paper mache, covered in fabric and then painted.  Also reinforced it inside with cardboard and packing bubbles.  It held up increadibly well!

I sewed his cape and shirt from inexpesive fabric we picked up.  His helmet and armour were made from reinforced felt which we spray painted silver.  His costume was definitely the hit of the night!  Everyone wanted their picture taken with him.

I had a blast with my costume too!

We're already looking forward to next year!
