I started working on my Halloween costume yesterday. I'm going to be Vanellope Von Scheewtz from the movie Wreck It Ralph. I know you're probably thinking that it's too early to be working on a Halloween costume since it's only the first week of September, but I don't have a lot of time to spare! I'm actually going to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party next Friday at Walt Disney World and have to have it finished this week.
Yesterday I started working on my tights with some fabric paint to make the stripes on Vanellope's pants. Today, I started working on some of my hair accessories. Vanellope is from a game called "Sugar Rush" and has all kinds of candy in her hair! I bought some map pins and glued them to bobby pins with a hot glue gun. I had no way to remove the pins on them, so I put a thick layer of glue around the pin so I don't hurt myself with them. I also found a peppermint from some broken Christmas stuff I forgot to throw away last year and glued it to a bobby pin as well. Just need to find some more fake candy!
