Fun Times in Fantasy Worlds~*~ from Sci-fi to DIY

Tag Archives: halloween

I’m getting behind on posting here on the blog.. mostly trying to keep up on Instagram, but wanted to get here here before I lost the pics! This year was split 1/2 with my friend Robin, and 1/2 with my youngest. The teenager opted out of going this year:(

I brought old standby classic Wonder Woman, comfy Spider Gwen, my teenager’s Riverdale Veronica, as well as a few new exciting costumes! Lady Death Bunny was my super cool bunny hutch costume, the green Absinthe fairy, the sand snakes from Game of thrones for Robin and I, Margot Tennenbaum, AND …. Eleven from Stranger things and Mary Poppins for the 8 year old!

She did the Masquerade costume contest and although she didn’t win, was inspired to make her own costume for next year and do it again! We packed a lot in, and had more fun than ever this year.

Highlights were hanging with Wonder Woman Artist George Perez and the WW photo shoot, brushing shoulders (almost ) with Peter Capaldi (while waiting to enter his panel), and everyone loving my little Mary Poppins!

Getting the hotel room for Tuesday/chill out day was a bonus. It’s quite a hard transition back to real life after such a thing like dragoncon!

I made a newer version of the B v S Wonder Woman costume. It is foam over a corset base. The boots and accessories were made or worbla (still getting the hang of working with this.) My Steve was just a thrown together outfit and some tee shirt leg wraps 😉 it rained so we didn’t do the Wild Rumpus Athens Parade.


The parade was pretty awesome to walk in this year… it is super fun to go as a recognizable character that the kids love. Many high fives and hugs going around ❤️

My one big panel choice had to be Matt Smith. The 11th Doctor. My favorite!

the girls both wanted to be Suicide Squad Harley Quinn. They had a blast doing the big group shoot and got featured on the scifi channel! I finally finished this Once Upon a Time costume of bandit Snow White. Not as much fun as I had hoped so this one got sold pretty soon after :/. and another costume I worked for a long time on and just didn’t really enjoy wearing. Katniss from Hunger Games (Catching Fire chariot dress.). It lit up like fire and fit well so I actually ended up wearing it to a Christmas party later that year 🙂 I skipped the bunny hutch this year because I had the kids with me on Thursday, but am looking forward to next year.

Here is the original:

driveryan


Based on the Johnny Depp character from Tim Burton’s 2010 movie…in a female version!

Shown on without the tights and makeup that came with it.

On ebay currently (October 2010) and if it does not sell, it will be mine 🙂

This can be custom recreated in any color scheme.  Shown with rust high collar cutaway jacket, reversible teal, blue and gold corset, gold stripe skirt, teased wig, mini matching tophat, scarf, and thread belt.

Adjustable size small to medium.  Max 36 inch bust.


This was a custom request from a gal who also ordered the Wonder Woman and wanted a slightly sexier, prettier version of Supergirl as well.  Normally she wears just a blue leotard, so we decided to pump it up with a corset and cool belt.  I love how this turned out and will probably be adding it to my regular costumes for sale next year!  It is all satin, with the top fully lined and boned.  A leather collared cape is bound in gold ribbon and snaps on.  It has an attached belt and laces up the back.   Also comes with superhero fingerless gloves! (below).  I will add some more photos when I get them from the customer!  If you are interested in purchasing this costume, please email me at miala.net at gmail dot com for a custom quote.


I believe this is gonna be one of my favorite creations this year!  I have a small collection of vintage lingere and laces and this is made with the most scrumptious peach silk and hand tatted lace.  I had made the corset using a thick white brocade lining for stability, then transformed it into this Marie Antoinette style costume.  I added accents of black satin, made a matching 3 tiered bustl-y skirt, tie on mask, neck ruffle and SPATS!  All with matching antique lace from the 20s/30s.  Each layer of the gathered ruffles on the skirt is bound in peach andpink binding, because if you flounce, it shows :).  I made a pattern for the spats and will try to upload that eventually.
