Sonic the Hedgehog Costume-Part 2

I wanted to have his costume done this past weekend but I didn't. It is almost done and I'll show you the progress I have so far. It needs to be done by this Saturday for the Halloween party at school.

 Using Simplicity Pattern 2855

 Hood where I have to improvise and add spikes to it.
Here is one of the spikes being stuffed.

I'll post it up when it is done.

Circus Female Ringleader-Gorilla Tamer Costume Part 1

No, this is not me. I could not pull this off-I'd kill myself on those shoes and I wish I had lovely legs like she does. This is a photo from Destroy.com about Amelia Arsenic's costume. Here's the full details about it.

My husband is going to be a gorilla, my 13 year old a banana and me the Ringleader/Gorilla Tamer.
I am making parts of  my costume-a fluffy skirt and waist cincher. Renting a petticoat. Using my lace up boots and black coat with lace(I used if for my pirate vampire costume and day of the dead costume). Top-I'm thinking my lacy black top(also used for the day of the dead costume). I've also bought a mini top hat.

I'll be posting progress on this costume. I just cut out a bedsheet with pinstripes last night but didn't get to sewing it together yet. I hope to have it done this weekend.

Sonic the Hedgehog Costume-Part 1

So I've started my costume making. My 9 year old wants to be Sonic the Hedgehog so I've started on it.
First off I have someone else making the boot spats. With all I have to do -I just didn't want to take a chance and let someone else do it.
I am using Simplicity pattern and redoing it. I am using fleece for the costume.
I'll post up updates on it.

NCIS Enemies on the Hill

What a great episode. From Tony and McGee interactions-Tony's remark about a older woman trying to cozy up to Gibbs as a Turkey Vulture. Ziva being an guard and taking precautions (slamming that guy up against the pillar). Most of all Abby finding out she's adopted . The scene with her and Gibbs-well -just go and watch it.
