Halloween Decor

Check out just a little bit of my crazy Halloween decor and stay tuned for more...I'm currently working on a wild Marie Antoinette Costume with a skirt so big it won't fit in the car to get to my job where I need to wear it for a Halloween parade! Yikes...

The hair/head piece I'm making is pretty big too out of quite a few plastic bags and plastic wrap, inspired by the audacious, fantastic and super-inspiring wearable art sculptural work of designer Kate Cusack but ala amarettogirl...so be sure to return this week to check it out!


Costumes Past Revisited- The NBC Peacock

Here's a five year old costume that I made for our school's 15 minute halloween parade. The NBC Peacock- there's a novel idea. I engineered the tail to open and close like a fan to fit in the car and through doorways. I used refrigerator box cardboard in long slits attached them all just like a fold-out fan. Then I made faux fur straps to tie around my waist and back (like a fanny-pack/backpack) to hold it on me while I walked. Yeah, Micheal's craft store made a lot of money off me buying royal blue boa's- I think I exhausted their supply!
