Skirt and collar for halloween.

I am from germany and since I’ve seen the first halloween movies when I was about six or seven years old , I dreamed of making my own costume. In germany it’s not that easy at all, because it’s no tradition to celebrate halloween like it is in america. I am sooooo happy that it’s getting a bigger and bigger thing here. I just love it! .

So I want to show my costume to you guys. To be honest, I don’t really know what I’m repesenting with this cotume. It’s something between a clown and a joker, but elegantly. I bought the corset and made the balloony skirt to get along with it. It’s made of 12 pieces and is filled with , what once was the inside of two fluffy pillows. The collar is made of tulle. It was super easy to make this. I just sewed an elastic band together with the tulle. :))

Also I baked some little things for our guests. Monster fingers and pus-body graves. The graves are brownies filled with vanilla pudding. I graved a hole with a spoon, put the pudding in and bury it. It was veeery tasty :D

I hope you like it :) I dream about visiting america during halloween-time, so I am able to be trick-or-treatings and to ring at all your door bells :D
