Update: Halloween Costume and Dragonette Concert!

Sorry everyone for not posting lately. I've been sooo busy. I ordered my Halloween costume online and then they sent me the wrong one and apparently the one that is pictured (which they were selling) is not available and the manufacturer screwed up. Oh well. This means I get my money back, but now I gotta figure something else out! So I started sewing my own costume... did I mention that I DON'T SEW! haha But it turned out really good, besides the fact that I can't get it on now because the leaves I glued in place arn't allowing the fabric to stretch!
Wig and leaves I'm using around my eyes are also pictured

I should have just sewed the whole damn thing, but it was taking FOREVER so only the bottom few layers of leaves are actually sewn on. I will have to go back and secure some of the leaves by sewing later, but at least its close to done. I just need to cut it and put in a zipper or something to fix the problem. Hopefully that works and I don't ruin it because I love it so much! Is a zipper the best option? HELP!

P.S. - my dog gets in a lot of pictures because she's always curious as to what I'm doing. I tried laying my outfit on the ground and all she wanted to do was lay by and it and lick it. I told her no and that's why she looks all puppy dog eyed. haha

I also went to a Dragonette concert last night. They are a Toronto based band! It was really good and so was the opening band, Ruby Jean and the Thoughful Bees. My girls and I got a picture with the lead singer of Ruby Jean cuz we loved her performance! I also bought all their cds cuz they were so cheap. My friends introduced me to Dragonette. I only knew the song "I Get Around", but didn't know anything else. I'm really open to new music and fell in love with both bands! I love concerts! What concerts have you been to this year?



I gave a listen to both Dragonette cds and I'm liking almost all the songs! Here are a few of my faves: I Get Around, Black Limosine, Fixin to Thrill, Pick Up The Phone, Big Sunglasses, Okay Dolore

  6. I did the same thing with a mermaid costume and scales one time and mine wouldn't stretch either.. I couldn't come up with a solution.. Maybe it will work out? Or maybe you could gently peel the glue off and salvage the leaves and sew them. I think that's what I tried to do but I gave up too. Good luck! Its very cute!

  7. @kaseybird - it sucks doesn't it. i just want to give up too, but i've been having such bad luck getting a costume together this year! i'm gonna try and put a stretchy fabric at the sides so it will be able to slide over my head... here's hoping it works! haha

  10. @Hannah - I love live music! I've been to a lot of concerts this year. A lot of times I haven't really heard much of the band, like Dragonette, and then find out I really like them! They have a good sound (pop/electro) and catchy songs.
