mike and i hosted a costume party on saturday for halloween, our favorite holiday. we dressed up as frankenstein and bride of frankenstein, and it was a big hit! we also carved pumpkins to go with our costumes for a little teaser as our guests walked up the steps.
the reason this counts as a post on creation nation is that i made my costume, and i made mike’s pec suit! i bought a white fitted sheet for $3 at the thrift shop and made the dress. for mike’s bulky pecs and shoulders, i used an old flannel pajama top and sewed little pockets on the inside that i then stuffed and sewed closed. it was all just kind of random sew-as-i-go without any pattern or anything, but i was really pleased with how both turned out. and glad to be getting some use out of my sewing machine!
