costume sneak peek.

3

ugh. believe it or not, I’m actually attempting to construct an entirely new costume for halloween this year. with everything that has been going on this month (mainly the bash contest), I was really on the fence about putting one together this year.

the main reason I build costumes like this (other that than the fact that I love it), is the totally epic costume contest and parade that takes place at my office day job each year. after my headless costume (and beetlejuice the year prior), I literally get asked by strangers in the elevator if I’m dressing up again this year, or that their entire department is dying to see ‘what I do this time around’. no pressure right? but of course, my feeling like the queen of halloween with my costumes, I decided to move forward with one of my ideas.

did I mention I just started the legitimate construction of the damn thing last weekend? yeaaaahh. of course, I won’t be revealing what I’m trying to pull off (the above photo is as much of a sneak peek you’re getting), but I will admit that this costume is turning out to be slightly more intense than my headless marie antoinette! I didn’t think it was possible, but it definitely is. there are so many details in this damn costume, there’s a good chance I might not even have it completed by halloween! it’s starting to feel like a bizarre episode of project runway in my studio.

wish me luck folks…3 days to go.
