The proportions are kind of off. I think next time I would make the mask bigger, especially under the eyes and a little above the brow.
I also want to apologize for the MySpace type of pictures here (and the overuse of the contrast function, haha). Laura's normally the photographer for all of the pictures on this blog, and she always makes me look good. This is what happens when I'm lent the camera!
A few more pics after the jump, as always.
The gorgeous lace hooded cape was also a gift, but one I'd picked out myself from an Ebay store a long time ago. I've never really found the best use for it.
This design was based off of Maleficent from Disney's The Sleeping Beauty, during the sequence in which she becomes a dragon. The neck part of the body simply wraps around the back in a bunch of spiral arm-looking things.
This costume was made at the same time as the other pirate outfit for a Renaissance faire. It was definitely one of the worst sewing projects ever, since I had to make 3 costumes in a fairly short period of time (and made some hilariously bad mistakes at the last minute. My personal favorite was me altering the trouser pattern to better fit a female body, then forgetting to change the pattern back when I had to make one for a guy. Haha oops.)
I do have a special affection for the Tim Burton stripes. Not in the current Hot Topic sort of way, but what can you do? So I did this simple pumpkin, but I think it does make a statement. The pumpkin I used was white too so it was nice and easy for me.
The pumpkins all together look kind of cool with all the different sizes and colors. I should try and take a photo of the whole group just to show.
