Cosplayer Stray Wind > Costume of Halloween Summer Dress from Original Design
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Halloween is my favourite holiday and time of the year. I kind of live and breathe it. Seriously. I dare you to find someone that loves it more than me. I have yet to find anyone! If I could, I would leave my Halloween decorations out all year!
Anyway, I wanted more dress making experience and I thought it would be fun to make a simple summer dress using a fun Halloween print fabric that you can get in October. I bought some fabric in October 2011. My mother picked out a great blue print with pumpkins, witches and haunted houses. It's adorable! I made it over the Christmas holidays. It was a pretty simple dress design (McCall’s pattern M5292) and it was so much fun to make!
I need to do a shoot with this costume. In the meantime I have a few shots that Pan took of me at AN 2012. I'm not so happy with the blue wig that I wore with it. Next time I'll wear a more Lolita style black wig.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This is a very simple original outfit, but I love wearing it! I can't wait to do a shoot closer to Halloween with decorations. (^^)
