Halloween apron!

In the costume shop, we had a Halloween apron contest. We had to pick a Halloween movie, and then design and sew an apron based on it. The contest was a Project Runway type contest. We had to pick a main fabric, a crazy fabric, a trim, and a plastic bag. Then halfway through our two hours, we were handed a random strange fabric and told we had to incorporate it.

I was at a bit of a disadvantage in terms of design, because I have never seen a Halloween movie. Ever. But luckily, one of the kids in my three person team had a really good eye for design. I am really pleased with how our apron turned out. Here is the only picture I have of it:
We took our inspiration from the character Sally, who is apparently some sort of stitched together zombie or something. We also made the neckline imitate the hill that is apparently important.

The purple was our main fabric, and the green and blue were our crazy fabrics (we were allowed to use two; we asked). The trim is the orange neck strap, and the plastic bag was made into that brown bow that laces through the eyelets.

That bunny fabric gave us issues. It was our random fabric that they added halfway through, and it did not fit with our aesthetic AT ALL. So we just decided to own it. It doesn't show up in the picture, but we Xed out its eyes.

We won first place in the competition! I was thrilled.
