I don't post much on Craftster anymore, but I figured every costume posted helps inspire people for the next year, so here goes...

I had a plan to be the Hamburglar for Halloween for about 2 months prior to the holiday. However, when I went to buy b&w striped material, I found that the only (yes only) fabric store/chain around here was not going to be getting any in this year. Faced with making my own (just completed a striped dress like this in the summer and it was super tedious... the addition of school made this impossible) and I had to quickly rethink my choice. I remembered seeing this tutu on etsy this summer: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=30984282&ref=sr_list_4&&ga_search_query=queen+hearts+tutu&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=date_desc&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title and tried to create something inspired by it in less than three days between classes and also making my boyfriend's costume. I spent all my time on the tutu, so the day of Halloween I quickly whipped up the belt/waistband thing (out of an old pair of pants and a cut up work shirt of the bf's... all the hearts are from that). The tiara is leftover from my 19th birthday party (4 years I've saved it.. I knew there was a reason!) and the socks are just American Apparel socks. I wanted to make a wand but ran out of time.

My bf on the other hand, was Mugatu. I think it's pretty straightforward from seeing the costume how we made it, but if you have any questions just let me know and I'll answer them. For the first Halloween ever in our 4 H'weens as a couple his costume won out for getting the most attention.. it was awesome! I was so proud to be out with him, hahaha. Here we go:

hahaha... once we were at the bar... i believe the theme of this picture was "be really really ridiculously good looking"

I didn't want to post a pic of my friend without her permission but this is the only pic I have of the night where you can see the spade panel of my tutu!

It was a really fun Halloween, I really loved my costume and the bf's. Thanks for looking Smiley
