On Saturday, I had a Halloween party with the theme of "Black and White Halloween Masquerade."

I dressed as a raven/crow/blackbird. My costume consisted of black attire, feathery black wings, a feather boa, and a mask that I made by gluing feathers and a cardstock beak to one of those cheap masks you get at Michael's/Party City.

Here I am in all my glory, in a pretty silly pose:

My BF dressed as Westley/The Dread Pirate Roberts from the Princess Bride. I made his shirt, using Butterick B4486. It was my first time using grommets, and my first time doing buttonholes. It turned out great, in my opinion:

Clever! I love the Princess Bride reference.
Great job.

Both costumes are great! I knew who your bf was without reading it  Grin

My heart beats outside my chest. He sleeps in a Spongebob Bed.

Thanks gang.  Cheesy

Did most or all of your guests stick to the theme?

I told my guests they didn't have to wear black and white, but I wanted them to wear masks. It sort of worked... I had a cowboy and cowgirl (they wore handkerchiefs over the mouths like bandits), a mime (dressed in black and white stripes, with facepaint), one couple wore all black and had really pretty masquerade masks, a few people just wore whatever costumes they had and tried to pass off sunglasses as a mask!  Grin
