My best friend and I always joke that a girl can be anything she wants for Halloween, as long as you wear high heals and put the word "sexy" in front of it (we've always had an inside joke about a "sexy apple", and then our friends ended up being the Fruit of the Loom fruit!) I love dinosaurs, so while thinking about what to be for Halloween one day I said "Well I could always just be a sexy dinosaur." Her response was simply "You are awesome", and it was decided. I went to JoAnn's Fabrics and found this amazing shiny glittery reptile fabric, and I instantly knew it was destiny... so after a few sketches, a few months (I start planning for Halloween early) of being intimidated by my lovely (but delicate) fabric, and a few days of cursing up a storm while it kept getting sucked into the sewing machine, my dream came true:

I made the front tie up sort of corset-style, but I've realized that in all the pictures I posed for I stood sideways to show off my spikes. If you squint, you can almost see it in this picture:

(that's my boyfriend, Dr. Horrible... I made his Stun Ray/Death Ray too)

By the way, this is my first post ever, although I've been lurking forever, so I'm super excited, although I've seen some costumes infinitely better than mine. Sorry that all I can do is link to pictures. Hopefully you check them out anyway! Happy Halloween Smiley

UPDATE: A friend put some of her pictures online so I'm linking to a few dinosaur action shots. Hopefully it works. Enjoy!

Bestest "sexy" costume ever!!!

So much better than a "sexy nurse" or "sexy cat" and all the other way overdone "sexy" things!

love that fabric!

Thanks guys!

I was so scared to post... especially since my less sober/more carefree Halloween self felt the need to hike up the skirt underneath before posing for pictures! No one really needs to see that much thigh... yikes  Undecided

Sexy Dinosaur?  Why not?  This is so awesome!  Love the picture with the apple.

This is a fabulous costume and great idea. You have inspired me to come up with something not traditionally sexy to make for next Halloween. Thanks!

You stole my idea!  LOL!  I've been thinking of being a sexy dinosaur (the sexy Halloween costume thing is ridiculous, isn't it?) for a few years now but never had the gumption to make a costume.  Yours is way cool!  GRRR!  ROAR!

ragingpie -- You should totally do it in the future, it was really fun! The only down side was the following conversation that took place:

random kid: So what are you supposed to be?
me: What do I look like?
random kid: Ummm.... hmmm....
me: Seriously, if you haven't gotten it yet you're being too specific... simplify it...
random kid: An iguana?

Fortunately I used to have an iguana so I didn't take offense, but I still can't figure out for the life of me how he didn't think "dinosaur" first...

Mable -- He is pretty great Smiley Sadly, many people at our party had no idea who Dr. Horrible is...

jango -- Glad I could help! So many people on here have inspired me in the past, it's nice to pay it forward Smiley
