Halloween is over Boo… hoo :( But I’m still going to post things I see for next year on this blog. And what a perfect way to end 2012 with A Happy Bat and Moody Drac from Mer Mag here. But am I going insane or does the “Moody Drac” look suspiciously like Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Boots - check, hair slicked back - check, face with attitude -check.
Truebluemeandyou: Reblogging probably last Halloween post (on this blog) because shouldn’t there have been more Buffy the Vampire inspired costumes or am I the only person who loves that show?

DIY Recycled Floppy Disc Bat Earrings Tutorial from Craft and Fun here. I don’t have any floppy discs laying around, but you could use plastic or any light weight material. I also translated from Italian to English using Chrome.
DIY Polymer Clay Horns and Craft Foam Wings Tutorials from EPBOT. Top Photo: Lightweight Cheap Craft Foam Wings Tutorial from EPBOT here (she writes you could use these for “for dragon/fairy/bat/devil wings”). Bottom Photo: Polymer Clay Horns Tutorial from EPBOT here.

DIY Crochet Bat Bow Tie Tutorial and Free Pattern from Good Knits here. At the link you can see more photos where the bat’s little ears are sticking out. If can’t crochet you could always make the really easy DIY Felt Bat Bow Tie here (and reader tracerracerx’s version here).
I made some batty bowties (really pins, but whatever; pin ‘em to your collar and they’re bowties!), one of them pretty much following the tutorial here (via truebluemeandyou): http://iwearthecanvas.blogspot.com/2012/10/bat-bow-tie.html
Then I had to make a pimped out Jack Skellington one, then I needed a hairbow, then the black didn’t show up in my black hair, then grey got made.
It’s been a batty couple of days.
Truebluemeandyou: Really like them! Especially the lower left one. tracerracerx used the tutorial posted above and here. There is also a wonderful Jack Skellington Bow Hair Clip or Bowtie for Inspiration that I posted on the Halloween Blog here.
