Sharknado Halloween Costume

Happy Halloween, everyone! As usual, I went all out on my costume. This year I went as the Internet sensation, Sharknado. This summer it took Twitter by storm (oh, you punny, huh?), and now it will go down as one of my favorite homemade costumes.

I used a combination of batting and tulle to create a twister that wrapped around my body. I meant to take photos along the way, but got so wrapped up (so many puns!) in making it that I totally forgot. After affixing the materials to my clothes with safety pins (who has time to sew all that?), I pinned on a dozen little sharks. To top it off (here I go again), I found a great shark hat. The whole thing turned out wonderfully. The final touch was a slightly larger stuffed shark I carried around and occasionally threw at people. I mean, I am a Sharknado, so sharks are bound to be flying around in my vicinity.

One of the funniest moments of the party I attended, was when I saw this little guy. Seriously, we didn’t plan it, but our costumes totally made the perfect pair.

And just for fun, here’s another picture, this time with skeleton Abby.

What do you think? What are you dressing up as this year?
