Halloween costume: Black Widow
I was a black widow for Halloween in a costume I made without spending any money at all. The extra legs/arms are cut from my old college graduation gown (why did have I still have it lying around?) and stuffed with bits of leftover quilt batting, and I added the hourglass to an old tank top. The skirt is from last year’s dark angel costume, which had been shortened and made smaller from a large Goodwill skirt. A friend lent me the gloves that just happened to have the red triangles.
When I walked out to the car my friend said, “I knew you were going as a spider, but I didn’t know it was a sexy spider!” Come now, is there any other kind of Black Widow?
Somebody was Indiana Jones and I tried the whip. My spider legs were connected to my wrists by thread, and you can kind of see how when I raised my arms the extra arms came up too.
