the funnest costume i ever wore was a spank fairy! i was basically a pink fairy but with a sassy bondage twist. i made a wand with a hand on the end out of a glove.  the best part was sneaking up behind people all night and giving them a spanking. everyone got a kick out of it.

my costume from last year has to be the best one i've ever made.  i was link from zelda....specifically the link in "windwaker" for all you link fans out there....anyway, i cant find pictures but it was pretty easy to do.  first i got an XL dark green tshirt and an longsleeve light green shirt (both from walmart). then i went to staples to get one of those cardboard trifold presentation boards (no spare boxes around, plus it gave me a good sized chunk of quality cardboard). from the cardboard i cut two swords and two shields so i could glue them together and make them sturdier for the long weekend of partying.  i then painted the handle of the sword and the front of the shield to match the coloring and designs from teh video game (i still have the shield around so i'll get a pic to add). then i wrapped tinfoil around the blade part of the sword.  to the back of the shield i superglued two handles a couple inches wide a few inches away from each other.  this was so i could slip my arm through the shield and still have my hand free.  i cut a notch into one of the handles so i could fit my thumb there more easily.  to the dark green shirt i cut off the sleeves and made it into a sort of tunic to fit over the longsleeved shirt. i used one of the sleeves to make a hankerchief/hat that link wears. i didn't alter it any, i just stuck it on my head.

so with the entire outfit i wore the light shirt under the tunic and wore my brown leather belt with a yellowish buckle over the top of the tunic. i wore jeans and plain sneaks. and i had the hankerchief and the sword and the shield.  needless to say, it was a big hit. and i had a blast wearing it!  i'll find some pics, cause its worth the effort.

Well the clothes are pretty obvious. 
I made the skirt using the Simplicity 1950's Costume pattern.  I used tulle under the skirt to make it poofy and a 4 inch piece of elastic for the waist band (belt).
I wore a white shirt and a Grey cardigan.

The most difficult thing to do was cover up my skin.  I wore white gloves to cover my hands.  I found Grey knit tights to cover my legs and then white ruffle socks with black maryjanes.

The key to the clothes is Grey.  When you watch a black and white movie, they are rarely BLACK and WHITE.  Everything is made up of shades of Grey.
MY HEAD>>>  I pulled my hair into the classic 1950's high ponytail and sprayed it with temporary colored hair spray.  I used silver (without glitter) because I could not find Grey.

For my face, I used a mixture of white Halloween Face Paint and a dab of black Halloween Face Paint to make Grey. Apply it like foundation over your face and neck.  Make sure you cover ALL of your exposed skin. Then put on some Black lipstick. 

1950's accessories...

I wore a pair of black 1950's eyeglasses, a scarf around my ponytail, and a white pearl necklace (not shown).  You can't really tell in this picture, but I even have on a pointed (cone shaped) bra.

OMG. I love the costumes you posted CraftyCarrie! I really like the 50s one, and I love love love the ones your husband did. Particularly the catholic priest one. Made my boyfriend and I crack up (he was raised catholic...but not like THAT) haha.

And the monster under the bed is very original. Love it.

These are costumes I made for my kids last year. I started with a base costume and worked on it from there, as you can see the super hero was pretty simple and its stuffed to make big mucsles. the princess costume was a dance outfit that I took apart and added too. I made her hat from scratch. Itwas poster board cover with tissure paper that just happened to match the fabric on her costume perfectly. the skirt is made frome tulle. this year is going to be even better!! she is going to be a christmas tree and he is going to be santa clause.  Grin


love laugh create!
