I really needed a good distraction from typing up an essay so making the perfect Halloween costume -a Headless Marie Antoinette – seemed like the ideal choice.
I started with the bust which I made from paper mache (complete with nipples!), attached the arms made from tights, wire and newspaper and then mounted the whole thing onto a rucksack with a curtain rod to provide height.
This Homemade Headless Marie Antoinette Halloween Costume was so much fun to make and wear and, at least, one hundred people came up to me to have their photo taken. Well worth the effort!
