I've been debating whether or not to make Joey get dressed back up in her Halloween costume so I can take a proper, blog appropriate picture of her. The pictures I actually took on Halloween didn't turn out that great, for one reason or another.
Oh well, it's still pretty fun, even with the less than stellar pictures.
As I mentioned, Joey was Queen Amidala for Halloween. She did this to match Kam, who was Yoda, pictured here holding his light saber/lint roller.
I sewed the costume from an angel pattern and then ran two wire coat hangers through the bottom hem, sewed on faux black fur (which was crazy messy, thus the lint roller) and then covered some foam with fabric to create the neckpiece and then added more fur, lots and lots of fur. Jenny was instrumental in helping get the neckpiece to come out right.
Here is the best picture I have of the costume. It's of Joey and her two best friends, just before they left for trick or treating.
The headpiece took the longest. Click here to see the process of making the plaster of paris base. I didn't get any pictures of how it went from this...
But, it involved more foam, hot glue, regular glue, spray paint, fabric, a wooden topper thing, regular paint, cardboard and a jewel. If you click the picture it'll take you to Flickr where you can see all my random notes.
