Pleather jacket made from scratch-technique used- creative sewing = I eyeballed things and got kind of lucky, good thing we don't need closeups 😄 ($4 Joann's upholstery fabric,  cut up belt and metal rings, gloves have added plastic scissor blades, spray painted silver ) pink yarn pom pom ears on hair clips and felt horn headband with mod podged glitter)  and Pennywise from thrifted and tea dyedcotton shirt and pants (cut up, ruffles added and yarn pom pom buttons sewn on).
Some hair spray and face paint = 2 happy kiddos in homemade eco-friendly costumes.
Yay.
Cheesy

I was happy how the "scissors" turned out as we had an opinionated customer, who didn't want bendy foam scissors, so I used a plastic box ... cutting the blades out was a pain tho Cheesy
