The Tidal Dandy Costume
On a yacht, pirate captain-style
|Costume type:||Costumes for Adults|
This homemade costume for adults entered our 2018 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from W., the 'The Tidal Dandy' costume creator:
I am wearing the costume, tailored to my body and face, as my brand Phoenix Lux Designs' costumes are custom-made for clients. My idea for the costume was to outdo my first, equally custom costume from last year that: the Infernal Dandy, which I put together from "junk" I had lying around in approximately 2.25 weeks for a small Halloween party I was invited to. The Tidal Dandy's cape is the heaviest part, so I had to glue my vest and dress shirt to the cape both to make those "tops" easier to put on and to weigh-down the front of the cape. The Tidal Dandy was party-ready in time for the yacht party, but then I updated it in time for the French embassy party, and I'll be finalizing it some more after this submission. I did NOT produce the jewelry or the base clothing, and I didn't produce the ribbons/mask/travel sling bag/shoes, but I WAS the one who acquired, curated, and ensembled everything using industrial-stength glue, hand-sewing, & machine-sewing.www.instagram.com/PhoenixLuxDesigns
