Late Nights

Last night, when I should have been asleep, I thought, "Maybe I should sketch everything out for my (get this) Halloween costume so that I don't forget anything." It's eleven at night, and I was worried about a costume for a holiday that is 7 MONTHS AWAY. Do you see what I'm getting at here?
Anyway, I sketched and made notes for about a half hour. I could not fall asleep until I was satisfied.

They are crappy, but here are things I've found online (cough-mostly Pinterest-cough) that are close to what I've been seeing in my head:

Curly-toed boots!
Aren't they just perfectly witchy?
Not what I expected though.

Striped Tights
A staple for anyone riding a broom.

Rag Skirt
Pretty and feminine, but not too much!
And I would probably add a tulle skirt under it,
just to add a tiny bit of volume.

Asymmetrical hoodie
Here is a VERY rough sketch of
what I'd like to make. ^
This is the closest I've found. ^
Her tutorial is a great start!
I think I'd be able to modify it
enough to make what I'm thinking.
I'd like to sew it so that the buttons are just decor
and it just slides on over my head.
Also, mine will be fitted under the bust
and then gathered over the bust
for a rouched effect.

Fabulous Eyes
Not the mouth. No zombies here today.
Note: Found on Pinterest by someone who found it on Tumblr which means
NO SOURCE and that bugs me.
If you know, let me know so I can credit them please!

I don't want any bugs getting in my eyes now, do I?
(Does anyone else think of Russell when they think of goggles?)

Owl studs
For luck! You can never be too careful on a broom.

And a ring too...
Perched and waiting.

Hair thoughts:
Messy side braid
Great for keeping hair out of the way.
Crimped hair
Adds volume and a bit of craziness
so it looks windblown.

And last, but definitely not least:

I love that she painted it black.
I think I'd get a crooked branch
and straighter twigs though.

Yep. It's the end of March and I just planned out a Halloween costume.
That's how I roll.

What have you been up to lately?
