Respect Halloween or He'll Cut You!
I LOVE Halloween. It's my favourite time of the year and I just loved the movie Trick 'r Treat when it finally came out last year. I was anxiously waiting for the movie to be released ever since I first heard word that it was being made a few years ago. I decided that I wanted to make a Sam costume shortly after seeing the movie and it became a bit of a dream costume of mine.
Fast forward to October 2010 and I was finally able to make this dream a reality! The costume took entirely too much time and work to make especially since the mask was a real beast. It needs a lot of work and in the next year I plan to fix it up to do a proper shoot of the costume before next Halloween. I was embarrassed by how lopsided the mask looked when I wore this costume for the first time at Youmacon, but I received a lot of compliments on it so my spirits were lifted. I know when I get a chance to fix it up I'll work out the kinks and I'll be happy with the results. I'm quite happy with how the pjs turned out so I'm already halfway there.
Thanks again to the wonderful Ammie for being my handler in this costume. I would never have been able to survive at Youmacon when I wore this without her help. She made sure I didn't bump into people and things and people didn't glomp me. I had very limited vision in my mask. Hopefully I'll come up with a little better design before I re-wear this costume so I can see more easily out of the mask.
This photo is care of Ammie. Thanks! I know a lot of my friends missed seeing me and are looking forward to seeing pictures of the costume. Stillvisions took a few shots of Ammie and me so I will have a few more photos to post later. Next year when I fix it up I'll be sure to get character appropriate pictures of the costume. :3
If you're a fan of Halloween and horror movies I highly recommend checking out Trick 'r Treat. It's a nice gem of a movie. (^^)
