I think this video will explain it all, but just in case, here's a picture for your viewing pleasure:Craftster if you'd like to check that out. But basically I made/re-made everything except for the shirt/stockings/shoes! All those badges I free-handed with a sharpie, painted, and then glittered :) The skirt was a floor-length high-waisted skirt (yuck!) and the hat was originally a tan colored shirt and craft felt. And I got most of it at Goodwill. I don't really remember how long it took me to make, but I'm sure it was more than a week, lol.
Some more shots:
I didn't get much use out of the thing last halloween. I wore it to answer the door, but we only had two trick-or-treaters. (Kinda lame.) I was thinking about wearing it this year, but that song isn't exactly top news right now. Maybe I could pull off being a "sweets scout" instead?
Hopefully this will give some of you inspiration to go out there and make your own costumes instead of buying pre-made ones. I once spent over $40 for a costume and I will never EVER do that again!
Ooh, another idea:
I wonder if I can wear this to work? :D
Michael's is having a big Halloween party in the store after all... hmm...
I REALLY love my job! :)
