Wolverine Logan Costume

Here we are again – welcome to 2017’s Halloween costume month! Yet again, I’ve got two weeks of Halloween costumes and ideas that are easy to make and easy for you to replicate for your Halloween costumes needs this year. First up we have Wolverine. This costume really came together when I saw a post…

Eleven from Stranger Things Costume

  Unless you’ve been living under a rock this year, chances are that you’ve watched, and fallen in-love with Stranger Things. It’s the Netflix TV Show that was a mix of E.T and The Goonies and it was amazing. Plus, that soundtrack ??? With that in mind, I decided to start my two-weeks of daily costumes…

Carrie Covered in Blood Costume

A couple of weeks ago for Halloween I created a Carrie mid-pigs-blood-bucket-pour costume. The mid-pour was created by having a metal wire fitted to the tiara and then fitted into the bucket.While it was quite the balancing act to wear it, it was also quite dramatic…too bad not too many people knew of the 70’s…

How to: Tutankhamun’s Tomb Poncho

The Tutankhamen Tomb Poncho was possibly the most dramatic costume that I made throughout my year-long challenge. So for my second How To, I thought I’d take you through it. You’ll be surprised to learn that while simple, it is quite time-consuming due to the intricate hieroglyphic patterns.   What you’ll need Your height in…

How To: Paper Baroque Wig

Day 250: Catherine O’Hara

March 4 is Catherine O’Hara’s birthday. Catherine would be best known for her role as the mother in Home Alone, but I thought it would be funnier/more dramatic to dress as Sally, which she voiced, from A Nightmare Before Christmas.   Photo credit: Billy Rubin   Patchwork Dress: Homemade from Material Scraps and a Cutup…
