Over the weekend, my husband and I were invited to a costume party. Because I don't know any scary costume ideas, (and also because I jump at every opportunity to dress up like a cartoon character) I chose to make a pikachu outfit. The skirt is a simple paper bag design that I learned to do last week (and now I have 5 more skirts that I just made--you'll be seeing a lot of skirt blog posts soon) and the top part was sewn over a top I rarely used. I made the ears as a piece attached to a headband, and my cheeks were painted with red lip color.
It was such a simple outfit, but I really prefer it to buying stuff from the store. The party was a disappointment, especially because I didn't win any of the costume prizes (SAD FACE!) It's ok, because the prize was a box of hot chocolate (which looked like it's been sitting in the host's cupboard for years). The winner bought her overpriced Egyptian headdress and painted her face white and was supposed to be a zombie Cleopatra. hmmm...
Don't mind me. I'm just being bitter because I'm truthfully an overachiever.
What did/will you dress up as for Halloween?
