aaaand here is my twoflower costume. the only thing missing is the iconograph and the sapient pearwood chest, but i ran out of time. i spent all last night and most of today working on that extremely loud shirt. but it was so worth it.
and here is my husband…
whose costume took me all of this week to make (and i’m still not 100% done; there’s a bit of detail work i need to finish)
i’ll post some more pictures of the process later but all in all, it took me 40+ hours to get his costume to this point (i expect another 2-3 hours of work on the robe, and then another 2-3 hours sewing him a screen-accurate shirt from the movie adaptation of the first two Discworld novels). my costume was mostly bought things, but i sewed the shirt myself and i’m hella proud of it because i’ve never sewn anything that complex (garment-wise) before. and i’ve never sewn anything so intricately detailed as the wizard robe (all of those stars are handsewn, including the sequins on the hat).
anyway, i’m really really proud of myself for this year’s halloween costumes. i feel like i leveled up :)
So I haven’t seen any love yet for the Hogfather cosplayers, so I wanted to share my photo. I nearly missed them until that guy turned around and I saw it wasn’t Santa. And then later I passed right by Susan and did a double-take. I thought they were great!
