Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday, so each year AFTER Halloween, I plan my next costume. I have a vision in my head, and that is how I create it. Very little is store bought, as I make my costumes myself, often the night before like this one!
I cut out my pattern (just by looking at the material, no actual pattern), and I sewed it together, trying it on several times. I then moved on to the boot covers, and the fake “animal” carcass on my shoulder! I planned to be an UGLY cavewoman, so I didn’t care that I stayed up all night making my costume, because if I had bags under my eyes, then even better!
I always have spirit gum on hand, and I took a fake mustache, shredded it up a bit, and composed a unibrow! I rubbed brown makeup all over my body to give the effect of “dirt” on my body; teased my hair until it hurt, inserted bone into the hair, and then put in some rotten teeth.
I pulled up to my job, and I took my time getting out of my truck, because I knew the Federal police officers at work would be looking through their security camera. I was promply greeting at the door by five officers who said “This sure in the hell cannot be Kharmyn!” I just grunted at them and they asked me for my ID! They said they couldn’t believe such a a beautiful woman would make herself so ugly! LOL! If they only knew my passion for Halloween! :) The unfortunate thing is that I had just had a manicure, and I wasn’t about to change that about me, so ugly cave woman with well manicured nails! LOL!
Needless to say, I won first prize at work, and a $100 gift card! OOGA OOGA!! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! :)
