My Fairy Costume

Makeup:           Peacock   not as good as hers.


 I researched art of fairies. And decided to base my wings on these.
Materials= pipe cleaners, black pantyhose, needle & thread, fake flowers, glue.
Sewed by hand. Took about 3 half hours total to bend & sew. Would have been faster if i had one of those handsewers.

 The skirt based off one of my store-bought skirts. I had to wing it on the side slits.
 The shirt was an old long sleeve top that I cut up. (I plan to use the sleeves for future arm warmers.) The neckline didnt turn out as well as I had hoped. I liked how the chain looks as straps. No pattern at all.
 The mesh overtop is just Halloween fishnet pantyhose from Wal-Mart. I cut a hole in the crotch, & I had to cut the waistline because it wouldnt stretch far enough.
 The shoes are store-bought.

  The hairstyle is modified from a style I found in a magazine.  I used Halloween hair color spray to color my hair.
            My steps:
 1. Separate front hair from back.
 2. Pull top half of back hair into ponytail.
 3. Make that ponytail into a messy bun.
 4. Put in hair sticks to hold up messy bun.

  Necklace- bought at claires long time ago.
  Earrings- I made em. Based on a pair from hot topic's website about a year ago.

I was Harley Quinn for Halloween this year! She is my all time favorite villianess EVER. Period, quite honestly. In the world.

But enough of that - here are some pics!

My friend Garrett (Blackbeard!) and I at a friend's party.

This friend's! Who went as Ned Kelly and who ALSO made his costume. A theme among my close friends happens to be a strict dedication to costumes and Halloween.

My mom, myself, and my boyfriend - who alas, could not be persuaded to be my Mr. J.

Dancing the night away. Smiley Unfortunately, I lost major costume winnings to the slut-in-a-bag girls, but ended up with a $50 bar tab and a giant Tiki statue! Comic nerds represent!

A reference picture of Harley. Smiley

This was a costume of trial, error, blood, swear words, and a lot of wasted spandex and broken needles. But, one awesome thing that I did learn was that craft foamies are amazing. I made the face mask by heating up some black craft foam with an embossing heat tool until it was warm and pliable, shoved it onto my face (true dedication to the character if I'm willing to burn my face off), and used my fingers to mold it while on my face. The result was a close fitting mask! This mask can be applied using spirit gum or liquid latex. Smiley

Hope everyone had as much fun as I did! I can't wait for next Halloween. Smiley

This year I was a space girl which was completely and utterly inspired by Indie33 https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=61074.0

I was hoping to go with a green theme but that didn't entirely work out since I was searching for a lime green shirt at 5pm on Halloween. I made the skirt out of silver tissue lame(ugh) and the wrap shirt out of some awful stretchy silver material that left pull marks when stretched which meant I had to cover all seams with the tissue lame to prevent runs. some kids hot pink turtle neck, white tights.

Anyway here are some photos! ray gun and all

I also made the toothfairys tutu, which you can't see in this photo TOO well, lots of different layers of netting, two top layers of tulle. and I made the peacock costume is mine from last year, I layers together all the feathers between a patch of cordouroy and sewed black feathers on top.

and me lazering all the cabs!

My 4-year-old boy asked to be an "angry robot" and this is what I came up with:

ha!  that is so cute, I especially love the angry robot holding the cowardly lion's paw as they walk down the street. 

if you can't lie no better than that......you might as well tell the truth.

I made a mummy costume based on 365halloween's tutorial. I won 1st place (and $100!) at work and had way too much fun making it...and a lot more fun being a mummy all day Cheesy

GASP! Shocked

The Harley Quinn costume gets all my trophies!
Wow!! Great great work.

Pinksqueek: You look very cartoon-y (and that's a compliment)! And you're HOTTT! I actually do like the stereotypical floozielicious slutty type Halloween costumes for ladies (though I think it's kinda sad that adult women actually need Halloween as an excuse to dress "like a slut"! Sluts unite, I say! Fight the power... Smiley Ahem... Well back on topic.) but I think this is so much better!

Your costume is AMAZING!

Harley Quinn ... is my all time favorite villianess EVER. Period, quite honestly. In the world.

Mine too!!  You did a great job on the whole outfit, and so brave to stick hot craft foam on your face    Cheesy

Everyone's costumes are so awesome!

I just got home from work and was able to get a few pictures taken of mine, so excuse the post-work tired expressions! This is a dress made from the two Regency period patterns Simplicity released a few months ago. It was very fun to make, and includes a chemisette, short stays, petticoat, and the dress itself. The little jacket I sort of created at the last minute, and it is not as fitted as I would have liked. And either my arms are too short, or the sleeves were too long,  Wink But you all know how that goes... The bonnet was bought, and I trimmed it myself (I think the most fun of the whole project)

The bonnet, taken several days ago

The whole look

Just the dress. I don't know why the dress looks so short in these, the petticoat really wasn't sticking out that much!

Thanks for looking!

You look like Elizabeth Bennett!  You look like you walked off the pages of Jane Austen.  I love that.  It's the favorite costume I've seen so far.  You've got my wheels turning for next year.

My costume for passing out candy last night.  Not as homemade as the others (vintage house coat from local thrift store) but still thought I'd share in the spirit of all things Halloween

I was June CLEAVER (I know bad pun, but I had fun and all the parents thought it was funny-- the kids were ambivilent)

Here I am just "cutting up a little something for dinner."

Ready for my closeup Mr. DeMille.....

There's been some great zombie makeup done with liquid latex, i just use old eyeshadow, pancake makeup and fake blood. 

Finally on the Wist Bandwagon:  http://wists.com/OopsCreations

I have loads of good quality CIGAR BOXES available for trade.  Great for purses, shrines, jewelry boxes.  PM for Pics.
