Hallowe’en Costume

My latest sewing experiement (which proved, among other things, that my hemming needs a lot of work):

OB-GYN Kenobi.

Thanks to my stepdad for the loaner speculum.

You may feel a slight disturbance in the force . . .

    I’m feeling a slight disturbance, but I think it has more to do with the speculum than the force. *shiver*

    Nice costume. :)

    BTW..your text is hanging off the left side into the border…don’t know if it has to do with the image or not. It wasn’t like this the other day.

    this is *excellent*. one more reason why i think you’re fabulous. for lack of time, i was once again a butt pirate this year. the gloves, the lube – you & i would have made a scary trick-or-treating duo.

    A tip for future hemming: sew 1/4″ or so along the edge to be hemmed, turn under and press, turn under and press again and you have a nicely turned hem. Pressing is the key to make your sewing turn out really nice. Pressing as you go and not all at once when everything is finished is also recommended.

    I agree that OB-GYN is a bit scary, something that someone who has never been in the stirrups waiting for the apparatus of stainless steel, can really appreciate! :) Thank God for plastic!!

    So when I burst out laughing Rob had to come take a look and I made him guess what your costume was before showing him the nametag (he got as far as “jedi doctor”). Anyway of course Caroline came with him because she is currently a daddy’s girl and can’t be more than 3 feet away from him without emitting a high pitched whine (in fact she frequently emits a high pitched whine while she *is* within three feet of him, causing his ears to bleed). Anyway the point being that we mostly wanted to share her comment.

    “So Pretty.”

    After that she kept asking where your hands and feet were, and ignored our questions about whether she remembered you from the beach.
