Pale Man from Pan’s Labyrinth Costume

A while ago a friend suggested I do the Pale Man from Pan’s Labyrinth costume. It took me a while to take it on because I wasn’t sure I would do it justice…and I’m still not sure. I think people will get it enough, but it’s not my greatest work. The eye-hands and long nails…

Rafiki from The Lion King Costume

Ever since getting a dog, I imagined creating a Rafiki from The Lion King costume and holding them up, Simba style…. I probably shouldn’t done it when she was smaller :S Sorry Ubu, it had to be done!   Photo credit: Frosted Tips   Grey Body Suit: Supre Grey Sweatpants: Kmart Monkey Feet: Smiffy’s White…

Alexanya Atoz, Kristen Wiig, from Zoolander 2 Costume

While I LOVED the first Zoolander film, I did not love the Zoolander 2, mainly because Kristen Wiig was not in it enough and she was the funniest character! Presenting to you, my Alexanya Atoz, Kristen Wiig, costume from Zoolander 2.   Photo Credit: Frosted Tip   Blonde Wig: Sparty’s Purple Headpiece: Purple Tablecloth from…

Beauty and the Beast Duet Costume

I hope you all had a MARY Christmas yesterday and I know you thought that you were all done with gifts for the year, but here is one last one – my Beauty and the Beast duel costume! My work Christmas party was themed ‘Duets’ this year, so I decided to create two costumes….sort of….

Furiosa, Mad Max: Fury Road, Costume

One of the best female characters to be seen in film this year would have to be Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road, played by Charlize Theron. Furiosa was tough, Furiosa was skillful, Furiosa KICKED ASS. So how could I not only create a costume to portray such a strong, female character, but also end…

Heath Ledger Joker Nurse Costume

Everybody knows that the creepiest characterisation of Batman’s, The Joker, is Heath Ledger’s portrayal in Batman: Dark Knight. One of his creepier moments was when he showed up at the hospital to mess with Harvey Dent, dressed in a nurse outfit. With my hands on a lab coat that I could turn into a nurse outfit,…

Hocus Pocus Winifred Sanderson Costume

Amongst my love of all things 90’s is the film Hocus Pocus. I will be projecting three films in my backyard during my Halloween party this Saturday: Nightmare on Elm Street, The Craft and Hocus Pocus. I think that about sums up my love of this film. So with that as my inspiration I have…

Ewok, from Star Wars, Costume

This week the final trailer for the new Star Wars film came out and the internet went wild. I thought then that it might be prudent that I take on another star wars costume for the blog (I’ve previously done Princess Leia and Hans Solo In Carbonite) so I went with the cutest characters created…

Alan with Baby from The Hangover Costume

In preparation for my Halloween Party this year I had to help devise a costume for my partner, Frosted Tips. The only problem, he has a beard. While this is not entirely a problem, it does narrow down how authentic your costume can be, unless you chose to dress up as something with a beard….

Marty McFly, Back to the Future, Costume

In the film, Back to the Future Part II, Marty McFly traveled 30 years forward in time, from 1985 to 2015 on the date October 21, which is today! So I could not pass up the opportunity to do a Back to the Future theme, with this Marty McFly costume. Photo credit: Frosted Tips Denim…
