After more toil and trouble than I care to recount, my Willy Wonka costume is complete. The last piece I had to finish making was the vest, and now that’s done the costume proper is done.
Let’s see the costume tally, shall we?
Hat: $14.99 Ribbon for hat band: $3.98 Cane supplies: $70.97 TV Goggles: $14.99 Shirt pattern (estimated): $8.00 Shirt material, findings, etc. (estimated): $30.00 Vest pattern (estimated): $8.00 Vest material, findings, etc. (estimated): $25.00 Chain and findings: $11.97 Pants: Free (had some) Shoes: Free (had some) Wig cap: $2.99 Wig: $7.99 Coat: $65.00 + $9.00 shipping TOTAL: $272.88
Wow. That’s a little more than I was planning on spending, but it looks awesome. Plus, it was fun to put together and kept me busy in a creative fashion, so that counts for something, doesn’t it?
I don’t want the final look getting out quite yet, so I’ll post pictures on or after Halloween. I think it looks pretty good, though, and Jenn says so, too.
