This costume is totally 100% Made in USA. By me! I got the fabric for free at work, bought the stuffing at Joann's (also made in USA), used tulle I already had and made suction cup spots out of bleach splatters! Halloween is so great!
I didn't want to ruin my only full length pair of USA jeans, so I made tentacle booties to slip over feet and bottom of jeans, and I whip-stitched the other tentacles onto the legs (with my mom's help)! I'm going to have to take of all the tentacles in order to wear the jeans again. People say I should still wear my tentacle jacket...We'll see. It's a pain to get on and off...
As my friend, The Other Anna, said, it was a "tentacular" day!
As Brian said, I was Octopus girl, fighting with the 8 Fists of Justice! Awesome!
