I really wanted a cool hat, I love the hat below by creepsuela but I couldn't afford the price. So I asked for a custom hat by joeireedhats $50.00, when I received I was a little disappointed, I thought the felt would be of a higher quality but, I never wore it as it looked like something I made myself. Not suitable at all, at an event where people spend hundreds of pounds on their outfit.
Creepsuela was having a sale so I was able to buy my beautiful hat for $95.00 I have received endless comments when I wore it out, and its so well made it deserves another airing. And the other hat, why I couldn't even resell it on ebay, try again this year. Unfortunately Creepsuela hasn't had any items on etsy for months, it seems the recession is killing creativity.
The base of this years Halloween costume is this Morticia costume http://www.fancydress.com/costumes/Morticia-Adams-Costume/0~109032~147

It was a hassle, after selecting the Bostik craft gun, searching for a second hand one on ebay, buying it. Then realising just because my local craft shop sells it doesn't mean they do the refills!
Thank God for ebay, where I was able to buy the refills.
It was then a struggle to get the glue to come through, I had to use a pencil to press the glue stick into the gun so the melt glue would come through.
Look what I glued! I hope it holds. And more importantly will it make me money?

They have been trading on ebay for many years, but most recently they have branched out into custom reproduction vintage styles.
They are a favourite of follow bloggers missmatildadreams or Diary of a Vintage Girl.
£67.00 includes p&p
A guilty pleasure of mine is to see the customers pictures and my don't they look swell!
This particular style is taken from a movie scene where two sailors visit a museum, it also stars Betty Gable as a girl trying to make it as a Pin up Girl, in fact I think that the title of the film.
This design above is the style that I purchased, and I received many compliments when wearing it, made from heavy jersey fabric its ultra comfortable.
see more pictures of me in this dress on my other blog
They also have celebrity inspired styles, such as Marilyn Monroe, and designer inspired such as Roland Mouret.
Dress like Dita- "cos every women has the right to."
These are images of the 2 out of 3 Dita inspired styles.
I am particular found of this style below, I remember when Grazia featured her first catwalk, and she was wearing this look in the pictures, I remember cutting out the article to keep. I recommend having a look and hopeful by next month I can order the gorgeous top.
