My DIY Halloween 2010

I hadn't decided what to be until about two weeks before Halloween. My good friend, Ellen, was dressing up as Snow White and I asked her what I should be and the first thing out of her mouth without any hesitation was, Pippi Longstocking! And that was it.


All I had to buy were overalls from Goodwill ($7) and wires from the craft store jewelry department ($1.99). Everything else I already had on hand. I cut the overalls into shorts and stitched on some squares of fabric using embroidery floss. So easy and so fun! The hair was a bit of a challenge at first but I quickly figured it out.

This is me and Jared, one of my oldest friends. He is dressed as Fred Schneider of the B52's. His band, Noddy, played them as a cover band for Come As You Aren't Battle of the Bands at the Skylark Cafe in West Seattle and won 2nd place! The show was amazing! So fun.
