Crankygrrrrl wants me to sneak in some photos. I have a few moments in my frenzied Halloween prep and was only too happy to make her happy. Although, probably not with photos she had planned. I thought I would give you an idea of the costumes we do here at Casa de Kis*Knit. (Really I just got back from boxing and can’t move. Sitting is good). The last 2 years of costumes below the cut. Enjoy! (or not)
This is the 2004 party, our first. I had some sewing experience prior (like 6th grade Home Ec) but not a whole lot so I was making a lot up as I went. The Husband is a samurai with kimono and hakama (the big wide pants that look like a big skirt). I am Kasumi from the Dead or Alive video game (here’s a figurine of the original). I bled a lot on both these costumes. I think this was the year that I stepped on a pin barefoot. Yeah. Don’t do that.
This is 2005. If anyone saw the short-lived TV show, Firefly, or the movie, Serenity, you will recognize our costumes. The coat was a pain, but it looked so good. Oddly enough three other people decided to go as characters from the show (I’ve Laughing-manned them out since I don’t have permission to add them here). Only the two with the blue hands coordinated with each other, the rest of us didn’t tell a soul.
Bled on this one a bit as well. So did the Husband. But this costume made him the master of button sewing!
Okay. Back to work!!!
