Thrifty! Thrifty! Thrifty!
I was originally going to do Jonny Quest (TRA) for ACEN but I couldn't find a suitable stuffed animal for Bandit and my short wig still has bald patches that need to be filled in. *derp*
Everything for Nightcrawler came out of my closet/storage/fabric scrap bin which was nice because it seemed like minimal work. Except the wig - wanted to use an old Halloween one but couldn't find one in the basement so I bought a cheapo witch wig which looks horrid. Was totally going for thrift and comfort with this one because recent weather (lots of storms) that would make more elaborate costumes a pain.
The brown shirt is dyed with teabags to make it darker and the blue are dye test scraps, cropped the sleeves and added splits to the sides. The boxer shorts are scrap fabric from d'Eon's vest, also cropped the red shirt and glued my fingers together with spirit gum (because Nightcrawler only has three fingers).
