|Faun Costume 2009|
I wonder if people more often make their own costumes, or buy them? I prefer to make them, but I know a lot of people don't have time, and end up grabbing something last minute from Value Village. I was at Patty's Party Palace the other day, and it was so busy, they had a security guard on duty!
I made my costume last year, and I'll probably end up wearing it again if I get a chance, because I don't really have time to do anything else. I wanted to be a faun, so I made a pair of pants out of brown Fun Fur, a pair of hooves out of plaster, and I bought a pair of horns (hmm all pairs). It looks pretty good, and I've been working to update it since then. The plaster hooves didn't last a night of dancing in Vancouver at the Dollhouse, but I've since had a seamstress friend of mine help me redesign them out of vinyl, so they will be much more durable. I've also bought a pair of long, pointed, latex ears, and some new horns, but here's a photo from last year.
I know it's on a weekend, this year, but I don't understand why we don't get an extra day off for Halloween. I've spoken to several students this week who told me that they didn't plan on going to their morning classes on Monday, and with midterms just finished or finishing up, now would be a perfect time for a little break.
I hope you all have a great weekend. Good luck with your costumes, and if you haven't found something to do yet, think about going to Rocky Horror. It's a party you won't soon forget!
