|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Meghan, the 'Pin Up Mechanic' costume creator:
I created this costume all by myself! I bought a hideous, jean, extra long maternity dress and cut the length. I cut 1" wide pieces and frayed the bottoms. I hot-glued nuts/washers all over the pockets (the pockets are left over from the bottom of the dress haha). I also hot-glued various vehicle patches and made the stomach area corset-tight. The tights actually have little Ford emblems hot-glued on them, but you can't see them in the picture. I put black eyeshadow all over to resemble grease, put a red bandana and flower in my hair, put it into pigtails, and voila! A pin up mechanic, handmade for about $18! :)
