Happy Halloween and Merry Samhaim! I hope your day is filled with treats and perhaps some happy tricks, hehe. I wanted to share my main Halloween costume that I crafted, yet unfortunately I will not be wearing it to the club since the weather has been an issue due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy. So, I dressed up and Derek took some photos of me on Monday evening.
As a side note-Hurricane Sandy has effected (and still effecting) millions of people on the East Coast of the US, especially New York and New Jersey, I sit here watching and feeling helpless. Everyone are in my thoughts, such terrible devastation.
"Come to me Arthur. Leave these others and come to me.
My arms are hungry for you, my darling"
If you haven't guessed, I'm Lucy from the Bram Stoker's Dracula, the movie by Francis Ford Coppola. I am missing my fangs as the damn things did not want to stay in my mouth, first time I've ever been a vampire and I couldn't get the fangs right. Go figure, haha!
My costume isn't exact, but I don't think I did too shabby of a job. The headpiece was a bit of a challenge seeing as I don't have hair on the sides of my head to bobby pin anything too, so I used a millinery pillbox base that I had and built everything from there. I made myself a white turban out of white jersey knit fabric in order to cover my head and hair, plus is gave the headpiece something to grip onto. I forced myself to learn some new sewing techniques with this costume which also pleased me. I also used a lot of fabric glue, it's the best thing EVER.
Did you dress up this Halloween season?
Thanks for reading!
