Halloween and give-away winner

By spotogspindel | October 31, 2011

Happy Halloween!

Thank you so much to three worthy contestants in my little Halloween-goody-give-away. Only one of you can win the earrings, but I thought I´d give you a “virtual” Halloween costume. These are all costumes I´ve designed and sewn for different shows I´ve worked with over the years. (Click on the pictures to see more photos from the shows)

This half-exotic bird with feathers, if not so many sequins and glitter, is for you, Gail. The big tail-feathers are actually mounted on a piece of wood that has to be screwn on to the rest of the costume. The rest of the costume is made of silk-velvet, tie-dyed silk, chiffon with feathers and stretch-jersey. (I didn´t make the mask) If you want a more domestic version, there´s a cute brown hen who can lay an actual, huge egg!


This ones for you, Linda. The ice-queen in Narnia. Loads of crinkled, metallic chiffons, a corset with silver fabric, sequins, glass-beads. White fur, silver knit, white dreadlocks and an icy crown. She was really scary!


And Birgitte, I´m sorry I don´t have Uma Thurman´s Kill Bill yellow track-suit, but here is a bunch of 60´s inspired POP-culture inspired costumes in the Arbiter´s dance-crew in Chess. A mix of shiny stretch-jersey, plastics white and see-through (a nightmare for the sewing-machine) silk shirts and mother-of-pearl-shimmering fabrics. A real feel-good scene.

So, now for the winner. Mr. Random says….


Birgitte has a wonderful web-site, with loads of inspiration. She makes the most amazing knits, a fashion-design. And she´s a very valued costume-seamstress too, I´ll tell you! she´s helped me in more than one production, Amanda is the latest one. A true multi-talent!

    Awww… thank you for the kind words, and yey! I absolutely love the earrings, thank you sooo much!

    And what awesome costumes! I have a special place in my heart for that peacock, and I’ve never seen the ice queen from Narnia before, how gorgeous! And Chess… I remember those dresses. Poor girls who had to get in and out of them!

    (I’ve been keeping my fingers crossed and sending lots of happy thoughts about the earrings… might I have affected mr. random with my positive vibes?)

    So glad you like them! I finally got them in the mail for you! Yeah, these are actually some of my favorite costumes. Each for different reasons. But of course, I have a lot of favorite costumes 😉
