Sneak Peek of Halloween Costume

Here’s a sneak peek of what the skirt for my Halloween costume is going to look like!  Now I have all the elements, I just have to assemble them (yay Joann’s!).  This is going to involve some sewing, which I’m no expert at, so wish me luck!

Aren’t these the cutest?  For the past few days, I’ve been really struggling with my Halloween costume.  I couldn’t figure out how to translate tightrope walker into a recognizable costume.  Working with the materials I had already purchased, I considered other costumes, like trapeze artist or elephant rider and realized that those were even less translatable than a tightrope walker.  So I went back to being a tightrope walker, but I wasn’t happy with it.  I told a bunch of my friends what I was thinking about doing for my costume and they convinced me even more that no one would get my costume.  But then, I had a breakthrough!  I’ve decided to make several key elements for my costume and I’m going shopping for materials tomorrow.  Now I’m excited again and I hope I can bring my vision to life!  This is just what I wanted anyway, to be something interesting and to get crafty with my costume :)

Here’s how I treat a warm fall day- by wearing my cozy new cardigan!  This shrug took me almost two months, on and off, to make, but I’m very pleased with the results.  The fit is good and the neutral creme color fills a void in my sweater collection :)

Finally I was able to try out this cool knot with my belt that I’ve seen on many other blogs!  Also, this is the first time that I’ve worn this belt, even though it’s been many months since I bought it (did I mention that I do that?)  So I was able to throw together this outfit on Monday, but lately, I’ve been having a lot of trouble getting dressed.  I have many ideas of outfits I want to try, but when I wake up in the morning and am getting ready for class and I’m standing in front of my closet, I just get super flustered, I can no longer visualize the outfit I wanted, and I grab the easiest thing to put on.  Which sucks, because this didn’t use to happen to me!  Does anyone else have this problem?  What should I do?
