My halloween costume for 2008. The nuuuuurse. ^^ I didnt make this from scratch, I used an old doctor's coat and made a dress thingie from it. Stained it with blood (actually acrylic colour) and dyed it with tea. Also made those brooches with enamel and the corset/waspie.
This was my costume for Halloween this year. Its made of foam, fabric, a little chicken wire, wood, and more foam. I am wearing it in the picture and my head is actually were the collar is. So yes, it's a quad suit.
Everyone seems to love my wig...A LOT. I do too! I feel it's the only thing that really "makes" the costume.
The wig is actually 1.5 wigs put together. It started as a Rainbow "Punk" style wig. Bangs were restyled and and another half of a Rainbow wig was added to make the ponytail. Voila.
This costume was really rushed, made in 2 days actually, and I was a bit rushed getting into it the day my group wore it, so there are little things I still need to do to it or change on the shorts, wigs, and track jacket that I just didn't have time to do.
Jacket was bought in the L.A. Fabric District. I ironed on the letters and the bf has an embroidery machine that we used to make the giant cutie mark (and the cutie mark on the shorts). Ideally I had wanted to modify the jacket in such a way that it already had wings attached to it, or could have a slit for the wings to poke through...but I simply ran out of time to do anything more than put the appliques on.
But, for a rushed together costume...I'm pretty happy with it and more importantly, it was SO much FUN to wear!
I put this in costumes, because I didn't do too much to the actual pony, just her outfit.
Anyway.... all made by mee! Her shoes are made from modified MLP shoes, her tiara from a MLP wing wishes outfit and is completely removeable(cut with an exacto knife - ouch on my thumb) and her mirrror from a cut MLP hairbrush. Its such a shame that her stitching is so noticeable, I think on the ribbon I will cut it off and redo it with darker thread (I found the stuff AFTER I finished, dammit) But I love her anyways. She was a Royal Ribbon G3, I removed her symbol, and dyed her hair with yellow dye to make that lovely aqua. I cut it a bit too, but thats all I did to the pony, she has no symbol because I can't paint! LOL Enjoy!
