Im almost finished with my cosplay costume of Vespa Girl from FLCL.

This is what she looks like...

That is so awesome, I love FLCL.  You def. need to post a pic when you are done.

To Destroyed_sweater:  A couple of simple costume ideas that can be put together with thrift store finds...1. A clown.  Get loud, clashing, baggie clothes and some face paint.  2. June CLEAVER!  House-wifey dress and apron.  Spatter with fake blood and carry a bloody meat cleaver.  Say, "Has anyone seen the Bev?" in a menacing way.

To Shylitegoddess:  Great fairy wings!

To BlueJeanBaby:  I love your Dorothy costume.  Where did you get the shoes?

I used to always make my costume.  It was a tradition started when I was a kid since we didn't have the money to buy costumes.  I used to be really into it, but haven't made a costume in the last 3 or 4 years.  Maybe I set my sights to big.  I decided the next Halloween I was going to be a vampire in the spirit of Vampire Willow from BuffytheVampireSlayer.  I figured out it was going to cost me around $300 to pull it off the way I wanted to, and I've not made a costume since.

I was going to post few pictures of past costumes I made (Wednesday Addams, a green crayon, Wonder Woman, The Virgin de Guadalupe), but I couldn't figure out how.  Oh well.  They aren't new anyway.  Good luck, everyone, with your costumes.

Ha.  Someone else with the Absinthe Fairy idea. I suppose all I need it green fabric....and high heels. I've never used a pattern when making clothes for myself....so this will be no different. I can't wait to post pictures.

I was the green fairy from Moulin Rouge (A.K.A : Absinthe Fairy) one year (unfortunately, I don't have a digital pic I can download....or upload...whatever)  I took an old strapless chiffon prom dress and cut the skirt way short (and kind of jaggedy), then dyed the dress green. The dress had a weird, built in shawl thing so I cut it to make the drapey, asymmetrical look that Kylie Minogue had going on.  I wore skin colored fishnets and silver high heels to complete the look.....and of course, some green sparkly wings.

It was a very cost effective costume: The dress was only a $1, and the rit dye was probably $1.50 ....the shoes were probably the most expensive purchase at $12 on ebay (but I ended up wearing them in my wedding 2 years later, so it was a good investment.) 

So anyway, to those of you who had posted your wish to be the absinthe fairy....it CAN be done inexpensively!

We don't actually have Halloween here in Australia, but I dressed up as the Green Fairy for a Moulin Rouge themed party. My mum and I made my costume, it's not EXACTLY alike, but I think it turned out great.
