I am so glad there is a thread for this. I always want to do something creative for Halloween, but then I just put it off and get lazy and end up wearing devil horns, but I can't anymore because some a-hole frat guy stole them from me last year. I was at a party wearing them and suddenly someone yanked them off my head and took off running . Anyway, I am tired of having a lame costume and I need something witty and cute and thats easier said than done.
I heard this idea on the radio last year the day before Halloween and made the costume for my 13 year old brother. We took a light blue sweat suit, glued cotton balls and quilt batting in splotches all over it and gave him a squirt bottle filled with water. When people asked what he was, he said "Partly cloudy with a chance of rain" and sprayed them with water.
He was a Magic 8 ball the year before that, we stitched a big 8 ball on a black hooded sweatshirt, both front and back-he had the standard responses (and a few of his own) on papers in the front pocket/pouch of the sweatshirt. When people shook him and asked him a question, he pulled out an answer...
well everyone knows of halloween..
this year im going as a Bond Girl.. (cant decide who yet... Pussy Galore? Honey Rider? Holly Goodhead?) but i can't think of what costume i should make...
ive got some gogo boots which i SO want to wear..
oh and what are you being for halloween?
i love halloween since anybody can dress up and go wild....
Id love to go as a house of cards..
-"vest" made of playing cards, all glued together (Im thinking of a piece from Margielas Artisinal line)
-"skirt" made of playing cards (knee-length preferably), using discreetly-placed safety-pins..
-"headpiece" made of playing cards, using a piece of cardboard as a base, then making an actual house of cards on top of that, secured w/ super-glue..(Im thinking Treacy/Jones here)
-"eyepatch" made of make-up applied to eye area, in image of clubs-suit..(Im thinking of make-up in an McQueen menswear show...
Question now is: how in the world am I gonna pull this one off? Hmmmm...
Since seniors get to dress up for halloween, I realllllllly wanted to wendy darling from peter pan. problem is literally NO halloween store stock wendy costumes. I don't even think they make them. So I think I'll have to buy a nightgown. But I don't know where to go to find it :/
