Hello all. This was a costume I made for me this time. I was so excited since I am always busy with the kids costumes. Anyway, I made the dress out of a shirt and skirt I got from the goodwill store. Made some adjustments and attached the two together to make a dress. Coffee stained it and distressed it with cutting and some dry paint.

The mask: Get a styrofoam head. I took the head and stuck it on my dress form pole. I then wrapped batting around it to make it bigger. I then used saran wrap and covered the whole head. Took a black nylon leg stocking and fit it over the head and tied it at the bottom. Next I took strips of fabric I ripped apart and dipped it in glue that I diluted and started dressing the head as if it were a wound. When I was finished the whole head was covered. Sat it in front of a fan to dry over night. Next day I took heavy duty scissors and cut up the back of the head but stopped where I wanted the mask to end at. Removed it from the head and trimmed it up to make it wearable. Removed some of the nylon but left part of it for the eye. Had to glue it back down since it wasnt sticking to well w/ hot glue gun. Then add the paint and a piece of velcro in the back for it to attach to your head. I made a hoodie, almost like a sccoodie to wear over my head since I have black hair and I needed to cover it. Put that on first then the mask and it looks like a completely covered head.

Arms and legs: Ivory nylons I hand painted. Not to hard all though you cant see them very well.

Oh and I bought some cheap white heels for 6 bucks. Added blood splatters every where and there ya go!

Cost of this costume....less than 20 bucks. Woo Hoo!

Take a look! C&C welcome!

On the dress form, better detail for dress

I am super impressed with not just this costume but all three costumes you made.  They're all great creepy-but-not-generic ideas, and executed really well.

All costumes are awesome but I think I would want to give oogie boogie a hug.
