|A pirate costume I made for my niece.|
|I know you've already seen the pioneer costume, but here's me with multiple petticoats instead of the hoops.|
|I didn't make this. It's a beautiful gift from my beautiful sister Cathy. I want to wear it with my Elizabethan gown as well as my late Victorian, but I haven't had anywhere to wear it yet.|
|I can't remember if I posted this. These were our quick and easy (and cheap) dental-assisting-appropriate costumes.|
|Remember this dress? I made it back in 2013. Well this last Halloween (2014), I embellished it some more.|
|This was our brilliant plan for getting the lace to stand up at the neckline--we hung my dummy upside-down from the shower curtain rod and applied stiffener. It worked pretty well.|
|The "handing candy out to trick-or-treaters" costumes from 2013--me as the Tooth Fairy and Jon as an old-timey newspaper man.|
|Halloween 2014--our costumes for our party. Here's Anna actually in her pirate costume and me in my late Victorian gown and a choker I made.|
|Same party. Here's Jon as steampunk Batman. I realize you can't see it super well, but this is all I've got.|
|I included this mainly to show the feathers in my hair.|
|Halloween 2014--church party. Jon as a pirate, and you can see some super cute Ninja Turtles in the background.|
|Same party. This is a better picture of me as the Tooth Fairy. I have since reprised the role for my current dental office.|
|Same party. Anna's Mad Hatter costume. I helped her put it together.|
|Sideview of the hat.|
|Halloween 2014--work costumes. Jon as Robin Hood, and me as an anime cat girl. People didn't get my costume, but I rocked it anyway.|
I work out front, but I still needed good mobility and the ability to get dirty, ruling out most of my costumes. My pirate costume would have worked, but I had already worn it for "Talk Like a Pirate Day," which isn't that long before Halloween, and I really wanted to wear something different. So most of this is from my wardrobe, including the wig, but I found the stripey tights at Target and the sequined cat ears at Claire's. It was a fun costume.
That's it for now. I need to get some pictures taken in my late Victorian gown with all the lace and beads added. I wore it to teach vintage dance at a daddy-daughter dance, but I didn't end up getting my picture taken. And maybe I'll make Jon put on his steampunk Batman costume again, so that we can take better pictures of that as well. I have also made/finished a few more things that need to be photographed so that I can show you.
p.s. Sorry the pictures are in an odd order. I just found and uploaded all the pictures and was planning to change the order afterward like I usually do. Unfortunately, it's not letting me do that this time, and I really don't want to delete them and re-add them one-by-one in a better order.
p.p.s. I'm working in a dental office again, and I'm very open to suggestions for this year's work Halloween costume.
