So this was my costume for Halloween which was a stroll in a New Orleans with a bunch of friends (Tabitha, Aaron, Christy and Don) and my co-conspirator in love games, Thad :-P This costume was actually a brainchild of my friend at work Steph Peters who suggested that I go out as Babydoll from Suckerpunch for Halloween all because I already had the blonde wig that I got a freebie from an ebay seller.
Normally I would just ransack my closet to see what I can find. Since I don't own anything that skimpy in my closet I had to go ahead and buy the costume. The kit came with a top, skirt, the head band which I didn't use, a belt and stockings. It didn't come with the accoutrements that made that character so badass so I customized it.
I bought a 1911 airsoft colt pistol. Then I started making the charms on the gun
from polymer clay.
I bought the decals from an ebay seller and adhered on them to put sides of the gun.
The bunny side
The skull side
Then I bought the licensed Suckerpunch Babydoll katana (Japanese sword) which did not come with the saya (scabbard) so I had to construct one from two short costume saya. Then I spray painted it copper gold and hand painted the gold snowflakes. I made the braid from an old shirt cut into strips which I connected and braided.
I constructed a holster. It took me a whole day to make it. I didn't use real leather. I used man made leather. I've never made holsters before but luckily Thad's gun holster was perfect for a 1911 colt so I used that to make a pattern. The shoulder straps I had to kind of eye it. Thad helped me out with the construction. I think it came out really well ^_^ I didn't end up using the belt that came with the costume because it was so crappily made. I wore a leather belt that I already had.
Lastly, the shoes! They were the only thing I found in my closet that I could use. They actually look like Babydoll's shoes in the movie except mine are wedges and hers were separate heels. I got them from Target a long time ago.
Thad decided to play along with my costume theme and came out as his version of one of the Giant Golem Samurai in the movie. His costume was from a Samurai Warrior kit but he constructed the mini gun from scratch! He is amazing!
So together we were this!
Happy Halloween you guys! I hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween!
