Project Runway: The Halloween Challenge
Heidi Klum: "Tonite you and your hubby will be attending a costume party. You have 1 hour and only the supplies you can find in your sewing space to complete coordinating outfits."
Tim Gunn: "There will be no sketching time or trip to Mood, and if you don't complete the challenge within the time allowed, you'll either attend the party in a lame "student work" costume or go without, and be eliminated from future Halloween party guest lists."
Me (from the depths of the closet): "Red Wings fan? Baseball Player?"
DH: "No. Don't have the pants."
Me: "Tourist? Cowboy?"
DH: "Boring. Even more boring."
Me: "Well, you're up a creek. I'm gonna use my cavegirl fur dress..."
DH: "SoAndSo said if you wear that, I should be Barney Rubble."
Me: (Lightbulb) "Ok, Barney. I can do that. I've got brown fabric downstairs..."
(15 minutes later)
DH: "Well, this looks good, I'm definitely Barney. But Betty didn't wear leopard print, she wore a blue dress."
Me: "Hmph. Ok, I'm headed back downstairs..."
(45 minutes later)
Little Miss Princess: "So... your a cave girl in a blue dress?
Me: "There was a cartoon... called the Flintstones... oh, never mind..."
Well, I don't have a full-length shot of us, but you don't need one. At the knees, we just took turns cutting triangles from each others hem lines. I made a big bow for my head from the triangles, and we wore sandals. Here's a different shot, you can see my bow.
You can also see that I am having way too much fun (fun = drinks), and will strongly regret my actions in the morning! But, I "Made it Work" and our friends loved our costumes! We are now headed out to take Spiderman and a Princess trick or treating, so hope you all get more treats than tricks!
