Last year I waited to the last minute to make a halloween costume and decided this year I would plan ahead. Well … I planned ahead but then left the execution to the last minute! Next year, perhaps I will get both planning and execution down ahead of schedule. 🙂
Regardless of time, the costume turned out fantastic. Here was the process told through photographs.
It’s all about texture
I knew I wanted to keep the costume monotone but full of rich textures.
It’s good to have a plan before you go to the fabric store, otherwise you can spend endless hours there and not even come out with something you are happy with. Trust me! I have done this!!
For this owl costume, I knew I wanted to keep it nice and simple in color and play with texture. I chose four different pieces of fabric all in the white/gray family.
*Note, be sure to make sure that all the colors of the fabri care in the same color tone. For instance, white is not just white – there are cool tone whites, warm tone whites .. be sure to get the same tone so that they mesh seamlessly together in the costume.
