My Creative Space: a halloween costume

Thursday, November 3, 2011

I'm still not quite sure why I decided at 5 p.m. on Saturday night that making a halloween costume would be a good idea. But against all logic, that's exactly what I did. Using this tutorial for a bird costume, I frantically started cutting and sewing until a few hours into a project that was only supposed to take about an hour, I called it a day and stopped.

You see, those ovals are supposed to go all the way up to the neck and the neck and armholes are supposed to be bound with bias tape. But when you start making a costume the night you need it you can't be too fussy! So I threw my half finished costume on and went and partied like it was 1 BC :)

Nicole and I. She's dressed as a 90's grunge girl (which was my original costume idea, the less insane idea). All photos by husband.

in the above right photo I'm flying, you know, because I'm a bird
