Witchy Wenchy Costume!

Post by Starparty » Tue Oct 18, 2011 11:20 pm

The dry run for 2011's costume was a success! I didn't wear my new new boots (Renaissance Faire dust + black velvet = B.A.D.) but I think the addition of Cat Got Your Tongue more than makes up for it!

And as a bonus I got to spread the holiday cheer all the way down I-71 on the way home! :lol:

Well done! I love the colors and all the little details on the costume. Lots to look at. And the cat pumpkin makes a great unique accessory.

And wow, a lit pumpkin in the back window of the car. Why haven't I thought of that? I should drive around like that all the time during this month. Good advertising.

I agree. Great costume and detail.

Also the lit pumpkin in the back window is a great idea.

Beautiful costume! I love the pumpkin in the back window. Unfortunately I have nothing in my car to set it on in the back. Time for a new car. :)

That is one of the prettiest and most unique witch costumes I have ever seen! Did you make it? (I apologize if there was a thread devoted to this)

You look great starparty. I'm getting alot of Hocus Pocus vibes from that costume. Really really great. I hope you had poison chocolate bars for kids in that basket! :twisted: :lol:

Thank you everybody! I'm really happy with the way it came out!

The pumpkin in the back was kind of a DUH moment :lol: I couldn't get the pins out of the bottom and shoved it in the back window to look for my pliers, saw the reflection and just left it there!

Amandap - Thank you!! I made the shirt and the top skirt. The bottom patchwork skirt is from Silver Squirrel ( http://www.silver-squirrel.com/ ) and the bodice was made by my friend Dev at Odd Bodkin! http://www.oddbodkin.com/ I'm a member of the International Wenches Guild so a lot of what I have for this costume is just my wench gear repurposed!

Costume looks absoultley fab Starparty! My costume was done the same way, hand made peices on several bought pieces.

If only I owned a car, I could do this sort of thing. 'Kins in the windows? Sign me UP!!! :D :lol:
