I hope everyone had a fantastic Halloween this year, and got to proudly strut around in your handmade costumes...and repeatedly explain who or what you are. It's one of the pitfalls of having a higher bar for your costume than the oh so popular, dead ____ , sexy ____ or zombie.
Last year I was the Fantastic Mrs. Fox, the year prior I dressed up as a mountain, so what did I do this year...
...Veruca Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! I made my costume and some great accessories, which were a must so people didn't think I was the little orphan Annie or Mrs. Claus.
Mom was really skeptical that I could pull of making my dress in one day, but two yards of fabric, on yard of cotton trim and seven buttons later; but don't look too closely it's not perfect. I did however add pockets before I wore it on Halloween night.
Halloween costume! Sorry for the terrible selfy but my photographer beau was working/sick when we got back home and wasn't able to attend my photo shoot. And yes that is Olive, my big black dog, laying at my feet, she's always around, I wish she knew how to hold a camera.
