31 days until Halloween, and I still don't know what I'm going to be.

I was going to be a femme version of Captain America (not to be confused with the female!Cap from last year) but I can't find a dress that fits what I'm picturing and when I tried to sew one, I ended up buying a poopy pattern.

And I can't find a good Arc reactor for a female Tony. And I don't know what else I want to be. And life is sad.

I can't get a good picture of me in it, for some reason, but here's the dress and cane. Behind the cut )

Okay, so, I've got the first half of the first part of my girl!Captain America costume done. The stripes aren't coming out as straight as I want, but I think I was being unrealistic when I thought I could get them more perfect.

In other news, someone solicited me for donations today inside Target. I gave him my best, "You should be so FUCKING ashamed of yourself you stupid, STUPID MAN," look before saying, "No," like it was totally obvious. Then I told on him.

(I have no Cap icons; I need to fix that)

My last-minute costume won Best All Around costume for teachers today! And all the little kids loved it! None of them knew what I was, but they liked it.

What cracked me up, is I kept telling everyone I was a flower or a flower-goddess or a flower bush, but when I went into the office, one of the kids took one look at me and was all, "Oh! She's that girl from Batman! Uh..."

And I went, "Poison Ivy?"


That was cool.

I'm not done with my Alice in Wonderland costume and I'm out of money. Now I have to cobble together something out of what I have. I'll give myself leeway to buy either make-up or a crown.

I wish I could just be Silk Spectre or Poison Ivy at school, but it would be waay inappropriate. Much.

So, I have:

3 Renn. faire chemises
1 bodice (although I may be able to fit into the leather bodice again... naw)
two sets of wings (one red feathered and one fairy, but the fairy is kind of broken)
One Victorian era dress (worn last year)
Tonks costume
Torn up shirt that was part of my "I survived Jurassic park" costume
Most of a red/yellow/orange feather covered piece of cardboard that was supposed to be a tail

And one ill fitting blue satin dress.

So. What should i be?

Thanks to everyone who commented with suggestions for sewing machines. I'll probably go with a Singer; just need to figure out more details. Of course, I'd planned to ask for one for Christmas, which made my mom panic 'cause she doesn't know anything about sewing machines and doesn't want to buy me one. So... yeah.

I'm making an Alice in Wonderland (Disney-flavor) costume for Halloween. I did a skirt; now I need to figure out how to sew a top. There is no pattern, of course, because that might make things slightly easier.

If I succeed, I may add Zombie Alice to my costumes for Comic Con next year. Because everything is better with zombies.

I got the boots the other day and leaved them today. I used up two rolls of tape doing it and I'm pretty much out of leaves now, too. The body suit is giving me a little trouble because I didn't have enough tape. There's still one strip I need to do on my bottom and a few on the side; I may just stick individual leaves on the holes.

I got the make-up to turn myself green, although I need to get green lipstick as well. I'm still going back and forth on what I'll do with my hair.

I'm really tired today.

So, I'm making gains on my Poison Ivy costume. Here are the pics:

I just pulled a boob muscle.

In other news, looks like i'll have to use double sided sticky tape on my Poison Ivy costume.

I finished gluing the leaves onto the Poison Ivy costume and now I can't get it on. So, either I gained a bunch of weight or I fucked up. I'm going with the latter.

With any luck, I'll be able to get the leaves off. Otherwise, I'll have to get another leotard and start again.

Does anyone know if you can mix foundation with food coloring?

I started on my Poison Ivy costume:

Poison Ivy cosplay

I'm concerned because I hot glued the leaves on, and I don't think they'll stick, but it's too much of a pain to sew each one on individually. Any suggestions?

I suddenly, really want to make a star costume. Like, a fallen star, like from Stardust. I'm thinking, silver or blue dress, shimery pale body paint, and twinkle lights in the hair and on the dress.

I don't need to make this costume. But I really, *really* want to.

Maybe I could do it for Comic Con next year to justify it?

I'll write later. Need more coffee.

I got the wings for my costume. I now need to dye them red, orange, and yellow. So: should I use watercolor, marker, or spray paint?
