Today's Red and Black entry is another blast from the past. This one comes from Halloween 2006. My husband and I, for the first any only time, opted for a couple's costume for Halloween: The Joker and Harley Quinn.
The gloves were easy: I traced my hand, cut it out, and sewed it together.
The headpiece was a little difficult. It's a separate piece from the costume, and I had a terrible time getting it to lay flat. In the end, I think I made three of them before one worked. The points on the headpiece (dunno what else to call them; does anyone know the technical term?) are just curved pieces of spandex and stuffed with polyfill. If I did this again, I would line them, because little pieces of the stuffing kept creeping out through the fabric. I attached two jingle bells at the end of the points and added elastic around the face opening for a tight fit.
His costume is great because it shows how you can make a fabulous costume without spending a lot of money or time, or having a lot of talent.
We won first prize at the Halloween party we went to!
