I promise to start posting the photos from the events from October soon.

Here's a sneak of my costume:

And I couldn't find any of my silk flowers and so I had to make one up:


Would you believe me if I said it was made out of jersey knit swatches and a paperclip.

This is how I did it:

1. 2 pieces of fabric
2. thin paperclip
3. bobby pins
4. fake greens if available

1. I just took 2 small pieces (one bigger than the other) and fold in the corner behind each of the pieces.
2. The paper clip and unwind but leave the inner hook as it
3. Pinch the inner hook to make it a smaller hook so when you bunch up the flower you can barely see it
4. Lay the small piece of fabric on top of the bigger one and poke the unwinded portion of the paper clip into the center
-Depending on the fabric you want to poke through each layer of the fabric one at a time
5. Wrap the paper clip at the base of the flower so it bunches up
6. Pin to hair with bobby pin

Quick and easy. A little ghetto but hey it’s Halloween already and also the recession. We need to learn to be a little more resourceful.

I hope all you have a fun and safe Halloween. Have a great weekend! I'll try to post Sunday.
