i'm working on a couple halloween projects right now, and they're all in varying stages of completion.
but! today a new group was started on flickr for bat crafts, and i realized that there were some bat-themed projects that i'd never posted here.
last year i machine embroidered bat necklaces for myself and for a friend, using the free standing lace design from urban threads.
and i think i did post this pendant, which i made using a fsl design from embroidery library. it was one of the ones i made for a pendant swap on craftster.
but i'm certain i never posted this, because i made this costume many years ago... for halloween 2004 i was a bat! it was totally a fun costume. i made hairfalls and batwings, and a little headpiece to wear.
the wings were made out of vinyl, and they held up super well.

and the yarn hair falls
my hair was longer then, so i could put it into little ponytails/buns to attach the hair falls to. they were made out of 2 or 3 different types of yarn, black gimp, black pony beads, black bat rings, and rubber bats that i drilled holes into. the hair falls were so awesome to dance with - it's been so long since i've had long hair, i forgot how fun it is while you're dancing!
