Being the huge Tarantino fans that we are, my boyfriend, my best friend and myself decided to be Vincent Vega (John Travolta), Jules Winnifield (Samuel L. Jackson) and Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) from Pulp Fiction.
My Pulp Fiction Costume was made by using my black pants sewn to the ankle, black pumps, my own button down shirt, my own hair (I attached false bangs). I made a prop needle sticking out of my chest (like in the overdose scene), using a real injection (no needle) and using latex flesh to make a mold to attach as flesh. I had some fake blood running down my nose most of the night and a Capri in my hand.
My friend (who is actually white by the way) used an old suit he owned, and used brown face/body paint to make him look like Samuel L. Jackson. We got a Michael Jackson Thriller wig and cut it down, then used the leftover hair and glued it to his face to make the sideburns. My boyfriend, Vincent Vega used an old groomsman suit and bought a cheap witch wig from a local party shop, gelled it down and cut it to Vincent's style. They spray painted some fake toy guys with silver spray paint.
We had a good time turning into character during the night from reciting Ezekiel 25:17 to dancing to Chuck Berry music at some house party. Oh and that's our other friend behind us as Ralph Steadman (Hunter S. Thompson in Fear & Loathing).
My co-bartender and myself wanted to do something different this year. He has this fascination with Dr. Hannibal Lector from Silence of the Lambs, so he went with it.
He went to the local Party Wizard store and bought the mask for $8, then to Walmart, where he purchased a $6 pair of white sweatpants. Last, to Family Dollar, where he spent $3 on a white t-shirt.
The white lab coat was given to him, and he wore a pair of white slip-on shoes that he already had. He borrowed a refrigerator truck from a friend. He put on the sweats, t-shirt, and tennis shoes, the lab coat was worn backwards, and the sleeves pinned to the sides of lab coat.
We strapped him to the refrigerator cart and wheeled him out. This costume was simple, inexpensive, and the crowd was amazed that we actually tied him up and wheeled him to the dance floor where he mumbled something about eating their liver.

Homemade A Bad Case of The Stripes Costume
My daughter had to dress up as a story book character for school. We didn't want to go with all the regular characters so we decided to go with Camilla Cream from the book " A bad case of the stripes". I found striped socks and cut the foot part off and sewed it into a plain white tank top. I bought an extra pair of adult new high striped socks which worked as leggings for her. I then painted her face to match.
The night before she went to bed I braided her hair to give it waves just like Camilla. This Homemade A Bad Case of The Stripes Costume was my first "homemade" experience. One that I am sure my daughter will remember for years to come! It was A LOT of fun!

Homemade Stinky Cheese Man Costume character was inspired from the children’s book “The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales”. The mask was made with paper mache and Styrofoam balls then hand painted. Handmade and designed pattern for the outfit.
