Meet Kim and Asher.
Kim owns PortraitBug, the scrapbook store here in Manhattan, which is how we met and became friends. She wanted to make a fabulous Halloween costume for her daughter, Asher, and so she enlisted my assistance. Kim sent me the instructions for a sandwich costume, which she found here. We made a few tweaks (like no ham -- Kim and her daughter are vegetarians) and had a very fun afternoon!
As you can see from the photo above, we measured Asher to make sure the costume would fit and then she headed home. Kim and I got to work.
We created the bread from upholstery foam.
We added some cheese...
Kim asked me to paint a tomato.
The inside is pretty Frankensteined (a mixture of fabri-tac and duct tape)...
Since Asher had gone home, it was up to Kim to try on the costume.
It was a lovely crafty adventure. I love the fact that it doesn't matter what the weather is, the child wearing it can wear a coat or a t-shirt without affecting the look of the costume! And seeing Kim in it, it's a pretty fun adult costume too....
Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. I have a brand new show opening on November 10 for a very short run of just two weeks! Rehearsals are going well and it's a very lovely cast. Love to see you at the theatre if you're in NYC!
Tickets are only $18 and it's going to be a lot of fun! (Isn't that photo amazing? PortraitBug is a scrapbooking store based around a photo studio and Kim was nice enought to take all the publicity photos for the show!)
