Well, Halloween is just around the corner and my boss gave me Monday off… so that means Halloween costume planning is in progress!
After several lukewarm ideas, I was particularly inspired by this Etsy seller . Her garments are realistic yet amazing interpretations of animals, musical instruments, even food! I have therefore narrowed my costume ideas down to two things: I’ll either be a monster or a cupcake (the gumball machine comes in a close third).
I used my Vogue pattern as a base to sketch up some ideas. Check them out:
Option 1, monster .
Option 2, cupcake .
Which should it be?? Or do I let the fabric store decide?
After an overwhelmingly pro-cupcake response, I did the only logical thing and chose to make a monster. The pattern called to me more—with more details, and more Halloween theme-ness.
Now my apartment is covered in orange monster hair.
