The boyfriend and I went to a Halloween party last night (which was super fun), and now that the excitement has died down, I finally have the chance to post our costumes here! I was Daria Morgendorffer from the MTV series Daria (she's originally from Beavis & Butthead, so think back to that era if you can't remember her).

The skirt is a 7" flat band with a 10" pleated section below. I plan to move the pleated section up and use it as a normal skirt now. The original post is in the clothing section, which you can see here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=415195.0

I'm actually somewhat pleased with how the jacket turned out. I didn't realize when I bought the zipper that it didn't have the part where you can unhook it at the bottom, so I had to pull it on and off my head like a regular shirt! It was pretty funny.

My boyfriend was Slenderman:

The jacket is one he found at a thrift shop, took the sleeves off of, and made super long ones. I'd been hassling him about finishing the costume for 2 months and, in his fashion of procrastinating, put it off until the day of the party. He had only finished one hand (actually pretty neat), so he just said forget it for that part. He also discovered he only had fabric for one pant leg, so he just had to sort of wrap some fabric around him for the picture. He's standing on drywall stilts, by the way.

Thanks for looking! It was quite an adventure.

Is he using stilts, or is he that tall? Great jobs!

Thank you everyone for the compliments!

He's on drywall stilts. If you didn't know (I didn't before this project), drywall stilts are flat stilts for people doing drywall work. By flat, I mean they're not pointy-ish on the end like stilts for fun. The angle of the photograph also makes him look even taller (I was crouching).

I always hate to bump older posts --but this is super cool. I am actually trying to pull together a Daria cosplay for a couple of conventions I am going to this year. Did you use a pattern for the jacket or did you just kind of freehand it? It looks awesome!

Thanks so much!

I actually did use a pattern:

It's McCall's M5992, which is family sleepwear. I used the top on the woman in the picture (top B) and made the lapels come down lower and made the closure a zipper instead of buttons. And, of course, I left the pocket off. It was so easy!

You will have to post your rendition of Daria; I can't wait to see it! I'm thinking about being Jane Lane this year. Soooo many projects to do...

Very cool, thanks Smiley And I'm totally not going to get it totally done in time for my April convention, but I've got my fingers crossed for the one in July Smiley

I considered doing Jane Lane too...her red shirt is probably much easier to find thriftily than Daria's green jacket!
