Back to the point. I'm not always really involved with the kids stuff. I volunteer. I make the cupcakes, I do the low end….but Halloween…I like Halloween. I like making the costumes.
I made this Dead Mau5 for Ilin
Powerpuff for Olive
I've even been known to knit a Princess Lea Wig
This year I said I'm tired. Ilin is too old and I always seem to have to work. But as the days got closer I felt empty inside. SO!!!! i decided to try a lil sumpthin' , sumpthin'. When we were in San Fran we stopped at this Steam Punk ( Distractions) store, and I saw these amazing Feather Mowhawks. Upwards of $500. I was mesmerized.
I had tried earlier that day to get Olive to agree to be a Lucha Libre, because we were seeing those masks all over the Mission …for CHEAP. she said NO way. spoil sport.
I couldn't just do nothing. we talked about a mime…or a princess…then I said, lets try a Feather Mowhawk
I did some googling
and headed out to find feathers.
I couldn't find any great feathers, because once again I waited too long and didn't have time to order. Hobby Lobby, junk stores, and any craft store had to work…oh yeah …plus 2 Feather dusters from Target.
I used this Link at Instructables to get started…He does a great easy job and his instructions are easy enough to follow. He has a cool site too HAR.MS
I added some of my own
Sew the hat part…
used Unicorn Buckrum (love saying that)
added the support like the guy did
then Started messing with the feathers
What a mess
I know it doesn't look like much…
But, I think it will
I have to get back to work. I have one more day to finish this becasue I have to RN for the next 2 days and her school festival is Saturday.
It's a bit too early to start drinking, although if I had some Bailey's or something I would add it to my coffee.
Bobby is not feeling well, which I believe is a way to get out of Halloween.
I'll keep you posted.
