Sting What are you going to be for Halloween?

I probably am going to be a Hobbit or a Ringwraith would be cool! I was at a lotr freak party with my friends and we dressed up as our RPG characters and I wanted to have hairy hobbit feet! So I got some brown yarn out and glued it on my feet with a glue stick. IT WAS SO FUn and funny! Try it, it works!

I am going to be a Ringwraith for Halloween, of course. Somewhere in a box (it has been around 10 months since I moved here and we still haven't unpacked everything) lurks the old ragged, tattered black robes from my old Scream costume. I'm pretty sure it comes with a hood so I will use that.

Perhaps I can wear all black underneath; last time I checked, those robes were pretty thin-looking. Perhaps I can paint my face black, make the hood bigger, and jump in a mud puddle to give the costume the rugged and muddy effect all of the wraith-girls swoon for. Maybe I can go so far as to convince my mother to let me borrow a horse.

It WOULD be quite fun to gallop about, brandishing a plastic sword, and hissing, "Shire? Baggins?" in a creepy voice. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

hey Faye! I'm gonna be an elf, if I can find fake ears. I went to the Rennesiance (sp?) fair yesterday and got a mini-crown called a circlet. It's an elven-drop. (no, really! that's what its called!) and I'm wearing it for Halloween. Maybe I'll be an elven archer.... how do I look in green? *holds up a loose forest-green tunic shirt for Faye to see*

Well, I'm trying to put together an Elf costume, but I'm not having much luck. I might be going to Michaels tomorrow and see if they have any fake ears. But as for the costume costume, I'm still working on it. I might have it by Halloween. maybe.

I just asked my mom, but unfortunately, they "haven't discussed it" yet. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
But anyhoo. . .
To those who want pointy ears, here's a link to a site that I have given many times; it gives step-by-step instructions on how to make your own pointy gelatin ears.
WARNING
These instructions include making a plaster cast of your ears before you make the actual gelatin ear and this could/probably will get messy!

Kewl!!! I'll need to use that! Yeah, I was one of the people who attended the Lord of the Rings freak party with Faye! I wore an elegant dress type elf thing. So I just need to get pointy ears and straighten my hair(It's curly and I hate it!). Faye looked like a really good hobbit! She fits the part perfectly!

I'm using that pattern too, Nev. Except I hope to use the one on the left. But the instructions say to use the fabric Jacquard, which is expensive. The only cheap Jacquard I found was turquoise. Would turqoise be weird for an elven costume? (It's pretty bright.) Please let me know.

turquoise for an elf has both good and bad qualities. turquoise is a very elf-like color but i don't know if you'll want to be running around in a turquoise dress alll halloween [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img].

I actually have an elf costume my mommy made me - she's a sewing genius! It was originally intended to be a Juliet costume, but it's white, with big sleeves and gold trim. It has a maroon velvet bodice and a cape of maroon "velvet" (the real thing's expensive!) with roses embossed on it.

I found ears! Okay, y'all: just go to a costume store and look for "little space ears". They look like Elf ears. And pick up stuff to glue them on with, of course, and maybe some sort of makeup to change them to match your skin color. But they look really real! I'll have to take a picture and somehow put it in here to show you guys after I'm done with Halloween!

I need some suggestions! I want to be Gollum for Halloween! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] . I'm thinking i'll dress in all black, but i'll paint my face and hands silver (I found some cool silver cream for that!) to make it complete, i'll get a ring, and obsess over it! What do you think? I'm not sure about the silver face and hands... would they seem Gollum-like? Give me some suggestions if you have them! Thanks!

Wow! I hope I run into some ringwraiths! I could have some real fun taunting them with my ring.... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] heehee! Haloween is going to be great!

Fabricland has a sale on fake satin right now (do you get Fabricland in the US?)The materials for my costume cost exactly $47.00 (CAN). The trouble is, I can't sew, so I;m wheedling my grandmother in to making it.
MY Mother, on the otgher hand is driving me crazy. she describes my costume as.... BRIDAL ELF!!! OUTRAGE! grrrrrrrrrr

Question: is there somewhere that any of you know of (I live in New York) where I might find Nenya for a reasonable price? Because I don't have $190 to spend on a ring...well: yes I do, but I'm not willing to spend it because I would have no money after buying it...

I was thinking more...along the lines of $50 or cheaper? I've been looking in every costume store I pass (dragging my mom in too), but no one has any rings (strangely enough)...

Okay: I have to officially say: costume stores scare me to death. All the robots of monsters moving around every turn...I spend the whole time clinging to whatever is nearest in fear...

I was thinking of going as a Hobbit, maybe Sam, even though I'm a girl and I'm 5'5" tall. I've got this old hand-me-down vest that looks kinda like Sam's, only I lost it- like I do with a lot of stuff. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] [img]smilies/redface.gif[/img]
I sorta had second thoughts about going as a hobbit... You see, up here in Pennsylvania we're starting to have cold evenings, which means I might have very blue feet if I go barefoot! But after seeing how to make hobbit-feet in the site Nev provided (thank you soooo much!!), I might be going out as a halfling.

I'm so happy! On Saturday, I found the perfect fabric. It's light green and cream colored with a dark forest green tie around the waist. Then I'm going to make my own headress with wire and buy hair extensions. The only problem I have is the ears. I might not be able to find the supplies to make them, and then if I do, I will probably end up making them incorrectly. I might have to buy ears, which is unfortunate because the ears at the costume shop look like hobbit ears (they're big).

I do have a question. WHAT DO I DO WITH SHOES? No one seems to know what type of shoes the elves wear. And I don't think I should go barefoot. I'm going to a dance and I don't want to get stepped on!
