A few years ago I had a bunch of small cavities and I was in and out of the dentist's chair several times over the course of a few months to fill them all. I wanted to translate that experience into my Halloween costume that year. I wanted to be a dirty, grungy, creepy version of the traditionally depicted cutesy and clean Tooth Fairy.

I made the tutu out of three different shades of tulle: ivory for teeth, and gold and silver for fillings. I stained my white burn-out shirt with tea and coffee to make it look dirty, and painted a giant tooth on the front. I wore grungy looking leggings and boots and a beanie. I got some wings and burned holes in them and bent them. I made a toothbrush bracelet by boiling it in hot water and shaping it to my wrist. I used floss as string for a tooth pendant necklace. I also made a little bag and filled it with fake denture teeth that jangled around when I walked. I also carried around some pliers.

Some people didn't get my Homeless Tooth Fairy Costume, but it was more a reflection of something that was going on in my life at that time, lol. A large tooth shirt was pretty good indication, but I guess that's just me.

My daughter wanted to be a woodland fairy so I got to work on her homemade Woodland Fairy Halloween costume idea. Using four colors of tulle and ribbon, I made the tutu skirt. Then, with grapevine I cut from my family's yard, I made the base of the wings. While the vines were fresh, I was able to bend them in the position I needed without them cracking. I tied them with fishing line to keep their shape. I then covered them with tulle.

Next, I took a cheap pair of socks and cut the feet out to make the arm warmers. I wasn't sure if it was going to be too cold for her, so they were designed as a necessity just in case! I then glued leftover pieces of tulle to them to add another element to the costume.

The headpiece was made from grapevine with a string of pearls added and a silk flower! I did take more ribbon and laced them up her leg and pinned them to her shoe. Unfortunately they kept sliding down so I just left them there!! In all, I was pretty pleased with how this homemade Woodland Fairy Halloween costume idea turned out! She was a hit of the neighborhood!

I made this Forrest Fairy costume for the faerieworlds festival 2011. My inspiration was just an idea - to become a "forest themed" fairy that could easily have come from the mossy woodlands of Oregon. I started with a bodice found online for 7$ and altered it - painting the lace a lighter green and adding moss and fuzzy cording. I made the skirt from scrap material.

I collected moss and lichen from the forests and created an overskirt, adding moss to each part of the costume to make it all more cohesive. I made the wings from 12 gauge wire and the flimsiest nylons I could find, spray painted them and burned a few lacy holes. The staff was created from an hold hiking stick and some fabric vines, and was lit on the inside with LED mini-lights (battery powered) and the inside ball painted with glow-in-the-dark paint for extra light at night.

The festival goes through midnight, so having a costume that lights up makes for extra fun. Green LED fiber optic hair barrettes completed the nighttime outfit. We received a lot of attention at the festival, posing for photos and getting compliments. I think the outfit was a big success!
