After changing my costume idea 3 times (remember, I said this might happen) I came up with a wonderful costume that I had a great time making. I rushed out of work on Friday, stopped by the Creative Reuse store and found most of my supplies. With my sister's help and incredible design skills, we were able to start my costume Friday night and finish it Saturday afternoon.
So what was I? A russian nesting doll! Also known as a Matryoshka Doll. I was hoping to have some extra time to make a set of stacked nesting dolls to hide underneath my apron but alas I didn't. But that's okay cuz I loved my costume.
She took my 1930's vintage bathing suit, put the cutest felt crab in her hair, made herself paler than pale, and then draped some "seaweed" with dead fishes, shells and sand dollars tangled in between onto her shoulders. It was pretty awesome. More on our Halloween adventures tomorrow . . . . .
