Hahaha! That costume is so awesome!  Grin
42  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / My last-minute Voodoo Doll costume on: October 31, 2010 10:35:56 PM
I wasn't going to dress up this year because I was only planning on handing out candy and just wasn't feeling very creative. I NEVER wear a store-bought costume... and even if I did, the plus-size section can be very limited.

Then I saw this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=217085.0
Suddenly I found myself at Joann's buying fabric and other supplies for a Voodoo Doll costume.  Tongue

I had originally planned on getting actual Burlap, but although I can sew straight lines just fine, I knew if I was going to be making a dress, burlap would just drive me nuts. I found some brown tweed on sale for 50% off and figured it would do. I basically just cut out two dress shapes and sewed them together making the dress. I also sewed my very first zipper and it turned out awesome!  Grin I left it unhemmed because I wanted a more ragged look. I stitched large x's all over with pink and black embroidery floss and added a red felt heart. To get the "needles" to stay, I just spiraled the ends and sewed them to the dress. I was planning on using styrofoam balls for the needle heads, but the wire would push through and I was worried I'd stab some poor kid in the face... so I made them out of polymer clay, instead. Then I took an old headband, covered it in the tweed fabric and attached another "needle". Oh, and I added some rope to the dress, too.

Anyway... enough rambling. I only took a few photos so I'm sorry for no detail shots. I could always add more later.  Wink

My boyfriend and I. I begged him to dress up... but he didn't feel like it, haha. You can see the headband in this picture.

Oh... and Betty Buttons. She got a costume from PetsMart because they were $3 and I didn't have time to sew her one. My boyfriend always calls her a little shark because she's going through that puppy phase where she is chewing on anything and everyone!

I love this!  Grin I'm cardigan-obsessed but have trouble finding cute ones that aren't expensive. I might have to try this.  Smiley

Very awesome!  Grin

I especially like the Back to the Future tee. Might be because my boyfriend used to own an actual Delorean (until he had to sell it at the beginning of the year because of the economy   Cry ). I cannot tell you how many times I have watched that movie!  Smiley
45  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Dexter Pumpkin!! on: October 30, 2010 11:22:45 PM
I'm a big fan of Dexter and when I was trying to figure out what I wanted to carve I thought that a Dexter pumpkin would be pretty awesome. I'll admit that I'm not an advanced pumpkin carver. I found one Dexter stencil online, but it just looked too complicated. I knew if I had attempted it, I would have messed it up and got aggravated, haha.

So, I went the easy route and did this instead.  Tongue

I like it!

Here it is next to the other pumpkin I carved. I've got a bulldog puppy so I had to do a bulldog pumpkin, of course!  Cheesy

So... they aren't SUPER FANTASTIC like some of the pumpkins I have seen on here, but I thought I'd share 'em anyway.  Smiley

Hahahahahaha! What an AWESOME couples costume idea!  Cheesy
47  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Vintage Voodoo Doll Costume (img. heavy) on: October 29, 2010 12:00:56 AM
I just gotta say that I am so glad I saw this post! I loved your costume so much that I decided to go as a Voodoo doll myself. I had decided that I wasn't going to dress up this year (and I ALWAYS dress up and make my own costumes). I'm only going to be handing out candy and just wasn't feeling the Halloween spirit. Then I saw this costume and had to jump in my car to go get fabric, haha. It's all done and I'm actually excited about Halloween, now.  Cheesy

So... basically I'm just saying that I love this costume!  Grin

Awwww, that's so cute.  Cheesy I like that it's reversible!

I'll probably have to make my bulldog a coat when winter comes because it gets well below freezing in Wisconsin. I'm a California girl so I've never had to worry about these kinds of things before.  Tongue
