I finished my Halloween cape just in time for the party I attended on Saturday. I was grafting the hood at like, six-thirty. : ) But it’s done and I love it, and yay!

DUDES. I LOVE THIS THING. It made for a totally bitchin’ Halloween costume (which I am thrilled to be able to wear next weekend when it’s actually Halloween) and it’s also just really comfortable. It’s like wearing a blanket on your shoulders! Very warm, and I plan to wear it all the time.

I made the underbust corset as well. I used some leather I got from a skirt I thrifted and took my measurements to make a pattern on newspaper, then cut out the pattern, cut out the leather, and sewed it up and laced it. Yay! I wore it on… Thursday, I think, also because it’s completely awesome and I love it.

I took a ton of pictures of the thing earlier today, so here are some more for your perusal:
