Strawberry Shortcake Costume by nimisha Strawberry Shortcake Costume by nimisha
This is the costume that I made for Halloween 2010. I sewed most of it myself. For the dress, I found a dress at a thrift store, and then I altered it by adding sleeves and godets to give it fullness. I got the extra fabric in the form of a giant table cloth form the same thrift store. I added on to the apron that I used last year for my red riding hood costume. I made the hat and the strawberry on top of it from scratch. The strawberry was made out of felt with white puffy paint for the seeds. I found the striped tights at another thrift store, new.

Strawberry Shortcake was the main character of a children's cartoon during the 80's in the US. A lot of people still have merchandise with her on it. I thought it would be fun to dress up as her. The hat doesn't look as outrageous on me as I thought it would.

Did you watch Strawberry Shortcake when you were young? What do you think of my rendition?

Well, to tell you the truth, when I was cutting it out I didn't realize it would be so big, but then once I had sewn it together and saw how ginormously big it was, I wasn't going to take it apart to make it smaller.

My neck wouldn't be strong enough to support a giant head.

As I've said to you in person, you have been making the best costumes in our group for at least two years. I don't remember what you were the year before Red Riding Hood though. I like how you were able to find everything, and it worked out this well. The tights were something you really couldn't have made, and it was good you found ones with the right kind and color of stripes. The dress was a pretty good find too. I'm glad you were able to find everything at such good prices. How much do you think it cost you total? How much was for the materials for the hat? How much time do you estimate you spent on it? Good job by the way.

You are very flattering Cassie. I think I spent about $42 on all the supplies. I have no idea how much time I spent on it, I have a hard time keeping track of stuff like that.
