For Halloween, K wanted to be a pirate. A steampunk pirate to be exact. She needed some kind of bodice, so we decided on a leather(ish) laced waist cincher. It took a couple of days, mostly because I had made a basket the day before and my hands were torn up: cuts, scrapes, raw all over. I wasn't being careful and I mangled my hands. Good thing it was black, the blood stains don't show.
36 eyelets. K LOVED it!
This was the full costume
The baby kitties loved it. All swishy and ribbons galore. She exchanged the Fez for a black cap and Quiddich goggles. It was very cool.
For Trick or Treating, she just kept the pirate bits.
I accidentally deleted loads of photos from my flickr account. I was updating my mac to mountain lion and moving photo libraries, of which there are three, to an external drive and iphoto asked me a question and I made the wrong choice.
Any who, I will be spending the next few... months uploading the photos, which were not lost, back onto my blog. Please forgive the broken link mess.
Not really all that upset actually. Should have done this long ago. And the trip down memory lane is rather fun. Lookie what I found
I made this scarf for a friend of K's, years ago. We haven't seen them in years, but we've heard she has worn it to school, to church, and once used it to as the garland on a christmas tree. She's an amazing young lady. And her brother is really cool too.
