Of course as I thought I was getting close to finishing I realized I
was missing things and needed to make another Home Depot run. Perhaps
tomorrow, if not then, well hopefully I can manage prior to Halloween

She will be so thrilled to hear that you recognize her. She figures she will mainly get blank stares while trick-or-treating on Tuesday.

Are you kidding, I knew it was her the second I saw it...but I'm a complete addict!! It is currently my favorite costume I've seen this year :-)

Thank you! That is really great to hear.

Unfortunately not nearly enough people have seen the movie.

I've had a lot of troubles making the costume. Mainly in finding the right fabric. I ended up needing to use fabric dye.

At one point I suggested to that we might need to switch to River in the final scene with the battle axes dripping blood because the dress would be so much easier to do. And in many ways would be more Halloween-y.

However she really was hoping to have this costume because she figured it was more unique. The other people might just think "oh crazy girl with bloody weapons" but with this one they should either get it, or ask about it.

I have been suffering from a cold that is kicking my butt this weekend, so I haven't finished it off for her yet. Just a few changes to the bead chain plus I need to get something together for her feet since I don't want her wandering the neighborhood barefoot.

Maybe I will find some pictures from previous Halloweens and post them too. She has had some pretty good ones.

I definitely agree with her decision :-) I can't find the right River dresses to save my life although the movie outfits would be easier to make/locate. Sun dresses are harder to recreate b/c of patterns etc, heh.

I would suggest combat boots but she didn't start wearing those till she was on Serenity. Perhaps hospital slippers?

I posted a list of previous costumes along with links to pics of them here. I am very fond of how the River costume turned out though. I just wish we had been in better health so we could have gotten her some more use out of it. We skipped out on the party we were planning to attend.
