Addams Family Values Cosplay

Oh. My. God! I was so excited to see Addams Family values on the big screen! Honestly, I think its better then The Addams Family (1993). So when I saw Cinespia was doing a special Thanskgiving screening I just about died. I haven’t seen the movie screened since I originally saw it!

Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion

I love love love this movie! It doesn’t screen nearly enough! When I saw Street Food Cinema scheduled it I bought my tickets, about, 3 months early.

And I finally got to make an idea I had for for-ever! Michelle WineBerger wine labels! Download the pdf label below for your own Romy and Michelle party!

Writers note: Seriously I have had my ‘Michelle’ dress since 8th grade when I wore it my graduation dance. Circa 1997. Sooooo there! 🙂

Harry Potter Night @ Catcher in the Rye Bar

Cather in the Rye (10550 Riverside Dr, Toluca Lake, CA 91602) is an adorable Library themed bar in Toluca Lake. They had a Harry Potter themed night for the opening of Harry Potter World at Universal City.

I always wanted to Harry Potter cosplay so I went a little crazy! 🙂 I sewed the yellow/red sweater detailing, and printed the Gryffindor patches on Printable fabric. Wand and glasses were an easy Amazon buy.

Back to the Future: Felt Skirt

I went to an awesome Enchantment under the Sea Dance hosted by April O’Neil for the Michael J Fox Foundation.

I’ve been working hard on my felt patterning, so I figured a themed poodle-skirt-style felt dress. I watched the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance scene and took note of all dance decorations. Color, shape, etc. I am proud to say all colors, no matter how strange or ill matching, are true to the movie. So basically, my skirt itself is an Enchantment Under the Sea Dance.  I made an inspiration Pinterest board here.

Specifics:

  • For the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance sign I used printable fabric. And recreated the sign in Photoshop.

  • The “leash” rope is a simple green braided rope.I cut off small pieces for the small vines coming off the main one.
  • Felt Detailing:
    • Red and Grey Vines with Pink Gems
