As expected, I’m already behind on blogging.
Last time on Avant Garbe, I was partway through a Dalek costume for halloween.
Here you can see the dress, partway through having ribbon glued on:
I also discovered at this point that my dress form is ~2 inches too big in the waist. I could zip the dress up on me with only a little struggle, but it was not going to zip up the form. I need to take the waist in on the cover before I start using it for real draping.
Here are tiny cups spray painted silver, which I glued to hairclips. The stability was questionable, I think gluing to a headband would have worked better.
I glued on a bunch more ribbons, a ton of plastic cups, and then I was done! Here are some pictures from Halloween at work:
And pictures from other Halloween parties:
