Last Halloween, I was finally able to unveil my costume that took me all year to put together: Steampunk Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time. This year, I’m continuing on with the Adventure Time Halloween theme, but with a LOT less preparation. Now I want to know what YOU guys came up with. Adding photos to our Flickr pool so we can all see, is an added bonus. What’s your Halloween costume this year?
I do love Adventure Time, Cartoon Network’s bizarro young adult show about a boy adventurer in the Land of Ooo. When I found Dan Toth’s episodic color palettes, I was inspired! Taking colors from TV shows to apply to — what, rooms? Spray paint craft projects? Reupholstery? GENIUS! I used Colour Lovers to do the same with a few other nerdy loves: Star Trek, Harry Potter, and Doctor Who.
Finn got a little adventurous in my studio the other day — one minute he stood proudly on the supply rack, and then he woke up on the carpet, kitty standing over him, his leg snapped. So now I need to fix him. Here’s the non-collector method of fixing broken vinyl toys.
