    Its fabulous. How long did it take you to make? I think I will have to make one and hope that it gets used in our next production.

      Than you for your compliment! Now about the amount of time the costume took, I think the whole project took about 50 hours including the pattern-making, cutting of the fabric, and sewing it? About two and a half months while procrastinating? :) So yeah…

      I actually haven’t worn it yet! Lol. I would’ve worn it out on Halloween but I didn’t have anywhere to go and I had school stuff to work on. So yeah… Oh well. Maybe I’ll wear it out next year? :)
