We decided to go as characters from our favorite video game, which has been renamed "The G.I. Joe Game" at our house. It held the record for most guns in a video game ever, so I thought that was a good place to start. I went through all of the action figure accessories in the toy box, and chose one that would make a good pendant - one that had a place for a bead loop, that is.
The red-lined sapphire seed beads are from the destash tray. I added them awhile back for possible use in a multi-strand design. The holes are just too small for most stitches, but for this project I didn’t mind suffering through a few needle switches. I used openwork right angle weave to make a simple chain, and frogged a clasp from another necklace . Even though I never take apart pieces, I had saved this one because the beads in it are just too good to go to waste.
As for our costumes, they are totally custom made. I put together and altered items from the back of my closet to get the Lilith look. Despite heavy rain, we had a blast. I had to carry an umbrella to keep my hair from melting - the wig is custom colored and shaped with a mixture of Kool-aid powder and conditioner.
What was your Halloween costume this year?
