Halloween 2014 recap

Last year I blogged about my Halloween costume, so I figured I’d continue the tradition.

I made the circlet for another costume a few years ago. The plastic sword was for a Xena, Warrior Princess costume. The belt and the gold slippers are some of my favorites from my actual wardrobe.

Obviously, though, the best part of this costume is the vintage dress. My mom bought it in Germany when she spent a year there in the late 70’s. She doesn’t remember where she found it. I’m going to say it was a charming little boutique because that makes a good story. It’s important to note that she did not buy it for cosplay. For a fantasy-loving flower child, this was an actual formal dress. She kept it all these years and is now graciously allowing me to use it for playing dress-up costuming.

I hope you all had a happy Halloween!
