I was really happy to be able to dress in a couple this year with a good friend - we were the Queen of Diamonds and the Queen of Spades. We tried to be as playing card-ish as possible, with motley capes of all colours.

I was also really happy to find almost all of the fabrics to make the capes in my stash. My friend (diamond queen) made our staffs, jewelery and earrings, and the crowns. We carried playing cards around as 'identification'. We didn't make the dresses - they were genuine 70s numbers that we had to pin, they were so little!

I had such a good Halloween - this was the first time I tried to put together a decent costume since I've been a kid. We didn't win any prizes, but we had a fun night!

The capes hanging out the morning after.
