Halloween Costumes.....Anyone Get Started Yet?
Halloween isn't for over another month yet, but how many of you have started on costumes? What will you be going as?
Pretty soon is when I'll start gathering the items I need for mine. I'm going as a character from one of my favorite musicals. I've been doing lots of planning and sketching trying to figure out "the look".
The character is a movie theater usher (well I'll be carrying a refreshment tray-an old cardboard box-so technically it's an usherette; the name of the character).
So here are the things I have down (some were suggestions given to me when I posted about this a few months ago) for my costume:
An old tux or suit (I really just need a top; I have black pants that I can use). Does anyone know how much they cost in a thrift store?
A top hat (thinking of dressing this up too; sequins, rhinestones or feathers)
Gloves or gauntlets(silver as someone suggested or sequined; I can crochet these if I need to)
Paint, glitter and belt for the refreshment tray
*Black, curly (not too curly) shoulder length wig
*Clip on visors for my glasses (rose tinted; hint hint)
*Old dress shoes (so I can add sequins/rhinestones to them)
The stars mean I'm thinking of adding them. The hat and gloves are optional but I think would look better.There's other small needs that I have on my list like bobby pins. I have a necklace I made years ago out of beads that are multicolored that would look great too with this costume.
So you see lots of ideas lol. I welcome any suggestions you all may have! Think of this post as the Halloween Costume Help Center lol.
Thank you very much!
