Hello! I know I’ve been non existent for quite a bit this year. Real life simply gets in the way from doing anything crafty or creative on my off hours. That being said, with Halloween just around the corner it’s now that i will start finding the time for costume planning, and Halloween party preparations! So much planned i’m sure i have plenty of time to do it and i’ll be sharing all here in the weeks to come.
First, i want to share the pieces I’ve gathered for my costume so far. I’ve decided this year I want to dress as a ‘Steampunk’ character.
I found an excellent shirt that is very Victorian looking with button embellishments for a dollar at a consignment shop. I’ll post a picture later.
Then on Amazon, i found the rest of the items…a hat, corset, wig, and goggles!
Once they arrive this Thursday i’ll see how well they work together. Instead of a skirt, i may go with a more modern look with black dress pants that i’ll try to embellish with leather belts and some gears that i’m going to cut out of copper cardstock which i’ll also share here on how i do it. Then i’ll finish it off with my Mary Poppins style lace up dress shoes!
I’m excited about this years costume! I think that is another idea for a post…i’ll share here some of my past costumes. Do you dress up for Halloween? What are you going to be this year?
