I'm beginning to feel the excitement of the approaching holiday. My favorite day of the year. HALLOWEEN! Its already all I can talk about because Halloween is on a Saturday this year. I actually don't have to take the day off AND there will be lots of parties Friday AND Saturday. I might still do 2 costumes this year, but I have not decided on that yet. What I have decided to do is to try to motivate my friends to do a group costume. I've always wanted to dress as a group and this year we might actually pull it off.
The theme is Alice In Wonderland. With the Tim Burton version coming out March 2010 its a fitting theme. However I am going to pull my costume inspiration from the Disney version.I'm going to be Cheshire Cat (Sexy version of course). I love the colors of the Cheshire Cat and his sneaky lingering smile. In order for more people to know that I am the Cheshire Cat, I need the other Alice characters to be with me. Nicole is going to be Queen of Hearts. Erin is going to be Alice and Kevin has agreed to be Mad Hatter if I make his costume. Still looking for someone to be The Caterpillar, White Rabbit, March Hare, Door Mouse or some Cards from the Queens garden.
So on to the execution of my costume. The biggest challenge I think is going to be making his big poofy tail without it looking like a limp rag hanging off my butt. Here is my sketch:
