Only three sewing days until Halloween! I’ve been frantic, but fulfilled, and it seems we’ll have a wizard ready just in time. Gotta few pictures for ye, which doesn’t make up for my absence, but at least gives you a little something.
This is Misha’s idea of being a big ol’ help:
She loves that robe. She’d always take up station upon it whilst I was sewing other bits of it. She’ll be thrilled to bits when she learns I’m making one for myself out of the same fabric.
My current supervisor fell in love with the robe, too, and decided he must wear it awhile.
He wandered round the call center talking about being a pimp wizard until he got too hot and had to take it off. And guess who gets a wizard’s robe next? Ja you betcha. I’m shopping for the most obnoxious fabric I can find, because he wants it so loud it’s screaming. Suggestions welcome.
When I’d finished the initial bits of the robe, tabard/tunic thingy, and the hat, we stuffed him into it for a fitting – he’s close enough to B’s size that he works as a stand-in. But I didn’t really need to see how everything fit together at that point so much as wanted to see mah supe in the full get-up.
He decided the point should point the other way, the way in which you should go: a wizard GPS, if you will.
So that’s the basic thing, and I’ll be done with some of the extra bits, and we’ll have a respectable wizard costume going on soon. Yay!
Got stuff for me own costume, too. After a billion years of the really ugly and unwieldy cutlass, it was time for a new pirate sword. B decided to test it on Luna.
And she’s all like, “Whaa??!”
And we learn why some pirates have only one hand:
I’m not going to wear the hook, it just came with the set, and now belongs to the kitties.
Kirby and Luna got a good nap in with B’s brother’s costume.
He went as Jareth, and hopefully will give me permission to plaster his mug all over the internets, because he looked awesome. Even though he asked me to do his makeup, and really, what do I know about doing makeup? But he was a hit.
Back to work for me. I’ll soon return with moar photos! And then we’ll get on with the actual substantial blogging thingy. I’ve missed you, my darlings!
