Creepy October 30, 2007
I haven’t put any time or thought into my own Halloween costume. I focused all of my energies on making one for my Blythe Doll. Through the This is Blythe forums, I found out that there would be a Halloween Blythe meet in San Francisco. Since I had several months advance notice, I was able to plan to go, and make a kick-ass costume (if I do say so myself). I don’t know how I thought of it, but I decided that my doll should be inside-out. Hours of sewing and knitting later, I think it turned out pretty well.
I made a long sleeve red dress to use as the base of the costume. I used felt and embroidery to create her organs.
I knit a long I-cord for intestines, and created a pocket behind her stomach for gut storage. thanks for the yarn, b!)
Her tiny heart attaches to her chest with a rare earth magnet, and can also be attached to a magnet on her hand.
Her brainy hat is made from pieces of curled up pink t-shirt material sewn to a skull cap that I made.
The overall effect is super-creepy. Let’s face it, Blythe dolls are inherently a little creepy, so for Halloween, you just have to go for it.
