Tech conference Barbie!

Abbey in a pink gingham dress with daisy jewelry

I have long blonde hair in 2023 and wanted to make a costume for MagnoliaJS and handing out candy on Halloween, so I decided to make an outfit from the Barbie movie. I used the Simplicity S9291 pattern to sew the dress. I altered the pattern for the straps and the skirt, so it had pleats. It was my first time doing pleats! I also made the hair bow from the same fabric and crocheted the daisy jewelry.

crocheted pink and white earrings, necklace, and bracelet

O multiverso é real hahaha
Acho que minha imaginação foi um pouco longe demais kkk, mas me diverti bastante, nesse Halloween o Coringa foi roubar um banco a modal la casa de papel e não podia de deixar de levar seu amigo Pooh como comparsa.

Não podia faltar aquele teclado maroto para desativar aqueles cheats no estilo gta rsrs

Fantasia de Halloween

Para isso eu precisei de uma fantasia da la Casa de papel, uma máscara do coringa, um chapéu de bruxa e um poohzinho de pelúcia, ahh e não podia faltar o teclado que uso para codar né.

materiais

Muito feliz com o resultado, me diverti bastante, espero que tenha tirado boas risadas de vocês com o coringa da Deep web hahaha

🎃 Good Halloween 🎃

I'm a little last minute here, but finally got my costume... ahem, I mean costumes ready.

First up, a hippy from the summer of '69:

In this pic, a man dressed as an old-school hippy (me) is standing in the foreground with a Flying V guitar in hand while a dog dressed as a turtle is laying down in a bed in the background. The man has long hair and a handlebar mustache... he is wearing a leather headband, round sunglasses, a long-sleeved jean shirt unbuttoned revealing a tye-dye shirt beneath it, and brown, corduroy bell-bottoms.

And another shot as the same character but with a different guitar:

In this pic, a man dressed as a hippy (me) is sitting on the ground strumming an acoustic guitar next to his dog (dressed as a turtle) who is laying on a dog bed.

Wardrobe change! Once trick or treaters started showing up, I morphed into Mankind (a WWE wrestling character portrayed by Mick Foley and freaked out quite a few kids that showed up. At least one kid knew who I was and was super siked to see me, haha!

Here I am doing my best to look big and intimidating as Mankind:

A man (me) stands initimidatingly. He has a brown leather mask that looks like a mix of a bunch of belts and Hannibal lector's mask covering most of his face. His long brown hair sticks out of different holes in the mask. He is wearing a white button up shirt and brown khaki pants. He is... Mankind!

And another one that is less intimidating with our nearly empty cauldron of candy:

Another one of me dressed as Mankind. A man (me) stands hunched over with a plastic cauldron that is full of candy. The man is licking his lips but you can hardly tell...

Anywho, that's me this year! Happy Halloween folks! 🎃

Hahaha! When you know, you know... and you know. 😁

Bahhhh! I totally missed out on Socko!!... What was I thinking?! I also forgot the dang neck tie and could've used some boots, haha.

So, this is for sure... I will be returning as Mankind in the future and Socko is coming along for the ride next time. Sometime in the future, I'm thinking I'll do the three faces of Foley... I was already pretty much 75% of the way to being Dude Love , haha.

Anywho, thank you for knowing what's up, Jo! 🙌

Pirate, and you can't see all the pirate swag on the hat cause of the angle of the shot.

For some reason these are the only really quality photos I have... but I made a mermaid costume this year for Halloween! I made the crown myself and dyed some clothing + knit a belt that is unpictured... it turned out looking a lot more like a Fiona from Shrek costume, but it was very fun and cool!
