October is def my favourite time of year! Everything from the smell of fallen leaves, excessive eating of bountiful harvests, my Birthday and of course............ HALLOWEEN!!!! As you may already know, we usually like to go pretty intense with our costume ideas. However, this year we wanted to have some fun on the lighter side of things.
Not quite sure how the original idea to be Yip Yip Martians came about, but it brought a huge smile to our face when mentioned. So the choice was set! Tracked down the desired fabric, picked up the other necessary items and with minimal direction from a web template, the construction began!
Wish I had gotten more pics from that evening this past weekend, but my focus was more on character. Plus, I had to keep adjusting the top part of my costume where the eyes are attached..... difficulties keeping it from sliding around with my long hair and dancing at the same time. Kim did manage to get a few snaps of me rock'n a bit of make-up on a friend before going out though.
So I guess, even though the weather is so crappy for actual Halloween night. Leaving next to zero inspiration for trekking out in heavy costume. At least great times were had last weekend and one of the joys with making your own costume is being able to pull it out again every weekend!!!... err, I mean.... next Halloween!!!! We're going to eventually need a separate storage space to house them all. Hope everyone is having or had a great and safe Halloween as well!!!! :)
