My Muse- Bjork

For the past few Halloweens I have attempted to be Bjork in her swan dress - slowly gathering the feathers, looking for the perfect nude bodysuit, researching glitter techniques, studying my inspiration picture, trying on pantyhose left and right, perfecting the eyeliner, searching for just the right stuffed swan. Every year I try and fail to fully pull it together, UNTIL NOW!

I spent my whole Saturday frantically spray painting the swan's beak, back and forth to the fabric store, sewing 20 yards of tulle together, trying on body suits, ripping up pantyhose and stuffing my swan! The final product was my dream realized! A few people had no idea what I was or thought I was a Swan Princess, but for the most part people are pretty smart!

From Frida to Bjork-I got to hand it to you, you are the epitome of thinking outside the box. Great costume, you did an amazing job and you look great in it:) The guys must have desperately been trying to see past the nude bodysuit-thank goodness for the strategically placed swan.
