BERNINA Halloween 2011 Angler fish

Added Oct 19, 2011

by sassy-pants

Pasco, Washingto...






When I asked my five year old what he wanted to be for Halloween last year he said an angler fish. Always up for a challenge I started working. The fish base is from an out of print Simplicity pattern and I made alterations to the tail and fins to make them look a little more like a scary deep sea fish. I also added teeth, lights, a lure, and big bulging eyes.

Material Notes

crepe back satin, foam, vinyl, plastic Christmas ornaments (eyes and lure), plastic tubing, wire, lights, ribbon




Garment Type
Organza, Other, Satin

    This is, without a doubt, the best halloween costume I have ever seen. Ever.
