getting ready for the Labyrinth of Jareth masquerade...and finally finished costume!
anyone ever watch that old Disney cartoon with the grasshopper and the ants?

I was inspired by that childhood memory to make this as my LOJ costume (well....David Bowie inspired the pants...mmmmm Jareth...)...anyway

Lined burlap "coat" with coat tails, hood, long sleeves, and a minimal front. Took FOREVER to make. Used a Simplicity pattern for the sleeved shrug, created the hood from my other cloat, and pulled the cuffs and coat tails out of my head.

Purse was based off of a Burda pattern.

Belt was based off of an online pattern (the link has escaped me).

I ripped apart an old pair of stretchy pants and used the leg as a pattern for the ones I made. No elastic. Will see if they outlast one wear... ;)

Tube top is in drastic need of improvement....but it is ONLY for one night...

Little hipster "bag o'Earth" was my own creation; filled with moss, acorns, and coffee beans as a fun way to tie everything in. Smells damned good.

What a hilariously fun and exhausting project!!! I'm sooo excited!
