it's never too early to plan your costume!



so this is who i'll be emulating. she's rita skeeter from hp and the goblet of fire (in my pants - nerdfighters!). she's a nasty gossip columnist who's out to make anyone look bad. here's what i've got so far:

wig (ebay)

jacket (ebay)

earrings (ross)

quill (hobby lobby)

handbag (ross)

fake nails and fantastic glitter purple varnish (sally's)


here's what i need:

a skirt to match jacket (probably have to sew it myself)

shoes (will bid on ebay - waiting until the end of the

auction to swoop in and win, i hope)

rings

fishnet stockings

fur trim for jacket

reading glasses and chain

notebook

red lipstick

pink blush and eyeshadow

attitude


i know it's 8 weeks away, but i'll post pics. stay tuned...

I have to say, once you get the black fur to trim the jacket....the jacket will be perfect...and the wig is perfect too....haha it would be funny if I came dressed as Professor Umbridge

my halloween costume consists of whatever i can find on end of season clearance. last year i bought a witch hat so i guess that's my costume. and i'll just pull some black clothes out of the closet about 15 minutes prior to kids ringing the doorbell...
