in celebration of my #creepycute21015 halloween adventures with the eerily talented jonathan lo of happy mundane, i'm embracing a 30-minute costume in pastel goth fashion.
behold - frankenbunny!
i admit, i'm queen of the lazy, last minute costume. it usually involves a mask and something vintage from my closet. nothing too advanced, but enough to get me into a costume-required party.
all that is needed for this quickie frankenbunny costume is the following:
1). pastel sweatshirt. i chose a long one in order to wear alone with tights, but you can chose a shorter one to wear with jeans or a skirt.
2). felt 9" x 12" sheets in pink, black, and white. available at most craft stores.
5). round head straight pins.
6). pellon fusible web, iron, and damp cloth.
7). frankenbunny template printed onto 8.5" x 11" paper. DOWNLOAD THE PDF TEMPLATE HERE!
step 1: iron felt to fusible webbing. this adds weight to the felt makes it easy to iron your bunny directly onto your sweatshirt. see how to use fusible webbing here. it's soooooo easy!
step 2: after you have fused your felt, pin template to fabric. you may also draw the bunny design directly onto the paper side of the fusible felt and skip this pinning step.
step 3: cut bunny head shape.
step 4: iron pink and black felt to fusible webbing. cut bunny eyes, teeth, nose, and ear inserts.
step 5: place eyes, nose, teeth and ear inserts into white bunny head. iron and fuse them to head. again, consult this tutorial if you've never worked with fusible webbing.
step 6: place bunny design on your sweatshirt. pin design to your sweatshirt to determine placement. once you iron the bunny head on, it is FUSED, so do not skip this step! make sure you like the placement. iron frankenbunny onto sweatshirt.
step 7: optional: for added hold and safe washing, sew fused bunny onto sweatshirt using a small running stitch.
step 8: that's it! add black and white tights, a black parasol, and a pastel wig. oh, and false eyelashes, of course!
