Remember Halloween? Yep, the night where everyone dresses up and you get candy (if you are lucky). I had posted a sketch of the costume I was planning on making and promised to follow up with a picture of the actual costume. I finally acquired the one and only picture of the said costume and here it is for your enjoyment.
I used an old turtle neck for the main dress and an old t-shirt and tape for the petals. I added a belt because the dress had no shape to it. The stamen crown was made of gold paper circles taped to wire attached to a gold headband. Green tights and boots completed the look - I had no time for grass socks. I'm quite pleased with the results considering I only started working on it the night before (procrastination queen).
We saw many great handmade costumes and a great deal of hand-selected underwear - definitely inappropriate apparel for the weather.
Overall, yet another great nights for ghosts, ghouls and fetishes.
P.S. I am aware it's almost Christmas. I'll post something more festive next.
