Hello! Today the Lady Bean is away with a friend so I will be working on her Halloween costume. She's wearing a costume that I made for myself around 10 years ago. Although my skills have superimproved since then, the costume is still good enough not to re-make, the wig however, was never what I wanted. I'm going to mend little bits on the dress and maybe add a few details that I wasn't able to add then. I'm also adjusting the fit for her, but crazy enough, she's almost the same size I was when I wore it... Creepy.
Once upon a time, in a land several hours away, I made a costume based on the original Sally doll. It was very last minute and super low budget, but it was great (except for the wig). The wig was awful though. I was in a hurry and all I could find was a red braided pigtail rag doll wig. I took the braids out and kept trying to arrange the hair, but it never worked. So now, I have time and more funds to devote to the project. I am following the first part of this tutorial and today it's time for sewing. I'm a little nervous, but I did get one bundle of yarn measured and cut.
|This is only a test.|
Anyway, I should do this and quit writing about it or playing in the yarn.
